San Francisco, CA, January 25, 2023 – LucidLink, an innovator in cloud file storage for remote collaboration, announced today that it has teamed up with the Trusted Partner Network (TPN) to establish safer, more secure content creation workflows for hybrid and remote teams worldwide.
By incorporating the new TPN+ platform into its content security preparedness, LucidLink continues to deliver its best-in-class security to protect creative teams’ valuable content and enable secure distributed workflows.
“At LucidLink, we are proud to be an early adopter of TPN +, especially since this certification was built for cloud collaboration which is at the heart of LucidLink Filespaces,” stated Peter Thompson, CEO, and co-founder, LucidLink. “Security has been a key design tenet since our inception, and we welcome the opportunity to help increase the level of security throughout the industry. We understand the threat to the entertainment industry’s most valuable asset – their content.”
