Mediacorp is Singapore’s largest content creator and transmedia platform, expanding into digital space. The company had challenges with VPN, which exposed applications and hosts to external parties. Additionally, onboarding of applications and users was a cumbersome process spanning multiple days. Akamai’s Enterprise Application Access (EAA) provided a Zero Trust security framework to Mediacorp by closing all inbound firewall ports, hiding applications from the Internet and public exposure. EAA also enhanced security by providing user identity and authentication, granting permissions on a per-application, versus network-level, basis. EAA helped Mediacorp streamline application and user onboarding processing, reducing three days of effort to just half a day, improving productivity.
Mediacorp operates six TV channels, 11 radio stations, and multiple digital platforms including CNA, Singapore’s most used news app, and Toggle, its digital video platform. Its mission is to engage, entertain, and enrich audiences by harnessing the power of creativity.
Mediacorp pioneered the development of Singapore’s broadcasting industry, with radio broadcast in 1936 and television broadcast in 1963. Today, it reaches 98% of Singaporeans in four languages and has a growing Asian audience base through CNA as well as entertainment content that is distributed across markets in the region.
