“Avengers: Endgame” Movie Leaks
Internet sites like Reddit and Twitter are aflutter with a five minute leaked clip of the movie 10 days before the premiere of the very anticipated “Avengers: Endgame” movie. Little is known as to how the footage leaked, but it’s expected that the person who leaked the movie had clearance to view the footage.
Presale tickets for the new Avengers movie quickly topped its competitors in sales. Disney and Marvel took many precautions to prevent leaks, like not allowing the press and critics to see the movie ahead of the premiere. It did not take long for Marvel fans to start the hashtag “Don’t Spoil The Endgame” on Twitter though and post requests to report any links that contain the footage. At this time, Disney has not commented on the leaked clip of the film or what their next steps will be.
Why Movies Leak
In the digital world, almost everything leaks. From the most anticipated music albums of the year to the manuscripts of books, and everything in between, expect leaks. One reason behind leaks can be an employee losing the USB or hard drive containing it, only for someone else to plug the drive into a computer. Or, in some cases, an employee might intentionally leak the media to the internet to harm the company.
Whatever the reason behind media leaking, it can seriously hurt the sales of a product and spoil surprises for fans. For movie studios, a leak can happen at any minute and financial loss of leaked movies this year is expected to climb to $8 billion. Due to the high risk of leaks and financial loss, it is important to safeguard data.
How To Prevent Movie Leaks
While preventing leaks is easier said than done, it is the only way to stop a leak from happening. The SecureDrive BT provides unique features that prevent the leak of a multitude of media platforms. Some unique features include step-away auto lock, and GPS geo- and time fencing, which give the user the ability to decide who can access the drive. The drive boasts a military grade hardware encrypted design and is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Validated.
The SecureDrive can prevent a leak because the administrator can track who has the drive and set time and geo parameters around when someone can access it. In the case of the drive being lost, the administrator of the drive can remotely wipe the drive from their phone, computer, or digital device. The SecureDrive can help keep your data safe, regardless of if you are a student, doctor, lawyer, filmmaker or anything else.
