TECHNICAL FEATURES / CAPABILITIES
- Secure Socket Layers (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) Encryption: Using these cryptographic protocols, we can encrypt the segments of network connections at the Transport Layer end-to-end.
- Security Certificates: You can use a shared certification, or provide your own. We support single site, wildcard, Extended Validation (EV) and SAN security certificates.
- Proxy Server Authentication: You can send the authentication credentials for protected content to your origin server for verification, or you can use the origin server for content and an authentication server to verify credentials.
- Token-Based Authentication: You can use this form of authentication to verify that the protected content’s URL did not change between the time it was published and the time the end-user requested it. It also ensures that any end-user requests for content that take place outside of the valid time window are rejected.
- Geo-Based Blocking: Using this authentication feature, you can anonymously identify end users’ physical locations based on their IP addresses, and determine if access to your content should be approved or denied by the CDN.
- Use TLS certificates (Transport Layer Security) to create secure HTTP connections so that data can be sent securely across the web.
- Token-based authentication: Used to grant or deny access to content; prevent unauthorized users and websites from linking to customer content and levering customer bandwidth.
As more and more of your confidential business communications and transactions are hosted online, it’s more critical than ever to protect that data with the highest-quality online security solutions. However, encrypted delivery and authentication services can slow your network performance, and greatly increase the complexity and expense of your IT management. So, how can you protect your sensitive data without sacrificing web performance or taking on the burden and cost of managing it yourself? By teaming with GMH to deliver your private content over a Tapon Content Delivery Networks (CDN).
Today’s mobile market is exploding, and the demand for high-quality online media has never been greater. Tapon Media Hosting provides breakthrough levels of quality and service for live and on-demand media streaming to the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android and all other mobile devices.
Our success in the live streaming arena is accomplished by applying our expertise to the scalability and performance of both the content preparation and the delivery process. By 2014, live streaming is expected to account for almost 10% of total consumer Internet traffic and, according to recent forecasts, 30% of global Internet video users already consume some form of live online video. Even as live streaming and mobile landscapes evolve faster than ever, one format continues to reliably accommodate all platforms. Accordingly, our mobile solution requires only the H.264 (mpeg-4) codec. With the world’s most popular codec, your media is available across Apple, Adobe, Microsoft and the web. Then, with Wi-Fi and mobile 3G, we avoid the traditional Internet congestion and latency issues encountered in supporting global audiences.
TRUE MOBILE STREAMING TECHNOLOGY
Our streaming technology delivers benchmark functionality for end-users. Instead of downloading, our mobile CDN (Content Delivery Network) truly streams to mobile devices. Our automatic bandwidth detection and variable bitrate streaming technology, along with fast-forward capability, create the finest user experience. As the broadcaster, you are only charged for the actual time users spend viewing content – an obvious billing benefit. As a viewer, our Tapon media technology means access does not count against your mobile device’s data plan. Inferior download models have no choice but to overcharge, as each view counts as a complete download regardless of the amount of media actually consumed. Hence, our true-streaming technology delivers a DVR-quality experience that enables you to view only the content you wish at precisely when you want.

By using the GMH Cloud, you can pass on flexibility and performance to your users. Use this page to determine the type of security, control, and customization and support your business needs. We’ll break it down for you into four easy categories: Advantages of the GMH Platform, Economic Benefits, Technical Benefits and Security.
ADVANTAGES OF THE GMH PLATFORM
Our high performance cloud (HPC) servers leave traditional servers in the dust. We can ensure you a managed and dedicated experience. We are here to help you manage all your cloud needs with a real person to speak with every step of the way. Once we are done setting you up, we hand you the keys and you’re ready to drive your own cloud controls, 24/7
The GMH Cloud can increase performance and handle the security, control and the transparency you desire for your business. With us you get the added benefit of scalability, flexibility and reliability that you’re looking for, but rarely offered in the same package. With our cloud, you will have the capacity to stretch your usage, be it day-to-day or unforeseen events such as bandwidth usage. And we are always reliable with our 99.9 percent uptime, so you can rest assured that your business content is flowing worldwide, all day and all night.
GMH CLOUD ECONOMIC BENEFITS
By switching over to the cloud, you can increase your business revenue by saving money and time. Because with the cloud, you own no hardware. Therefore, you incur no maintenance costs or depreciation of old software. This creates a much higher ROI because you pay less for your services, incur no upgrade costs, and your content has a quicker-to-market time. Another great benefit of the cloud is the pay-per-use function. This allows resources to be purchased, as needed, so you do not have over or under-investment purchases. That frees up a lot of time and worry if you have made the right decision for your business. It is completely flexible!And as a serious-about-the-environment group here at Tapon Media Hosting, we like to keep our cloud servers running optimally at all times, without sacrificing uptime, of course! We do this by using a high efficiency data center and hardware. The majority of our electricity comes from green generated sources and by doing this, we reduce our carbon footprint, and so do you!
CLOUD TECHNOLOGICAL BENEFITS
Stay automated anywhere you go with our cloud’s full API system. One of the best technological advantages of switching to the cloud is the capability to manage your assets through our API system. This allows you to remotely access resources or fully automate your process, straight from the online browser system. This also means that multiple people anywhere in the world can remotely access the API and control settings as one resource. This means flexibility for you and your company. The cloud is the better choice than physical hardware because it allows you the automated flexibility that others do not.
GMH CLOUD SECURITY
Tapon Media Hosting is pleased to offer you enhanced protection for the cloud applications you’re hosting on the GMH platform. How does GMH Cloud Simplify Security? If you’re like most of us, you leave ports such as RDP, SSH, phpMyAdmin etc.. open, so you can connect to your manage server. But this practice leaves your servers exposed to zero-day vulnerabilities and everyday exploits and attacks. Now, with our partner Dome9’s service deployed on the GMH Cloud we can secure you by closing these ports and providing secure, on-demand access when, for whom, and for only as long as needed.Stop Zero-Day Vulnerabilities and Exploits by closing open service ports like SSH and RDP.
