Screenly innovates IoT fleet management for secure digital signage

Transforming screens into powerful digital signs is what San Francisco-based Screenly is known for. Every digital sign needs its own media player IoT device, and to remain secure and performant, each of these devices needs to be kept up-to-date with the latest operating system and software patches. This is easier said than done when dealing with a rapidly growing device fleet of over 10,000 screens spanned across 75 countries.

An effective digital sign must be stable, easy to manage – and above all, secure.

In the digital signage space, security is paramount. If a bad actor gains access to a public-facing screen, the damage they can wreak by displaying inappropriate content or sensitive data is incalculable. Equally important is ensuring the lack of screen downtime and a smooth software update process. Originally having relied on home-grown infrastructure to deliver over-the-air (OTA) patches to devices in the field, Screenly needed a better way to manage its fast scaling and distributed IoT fleet. After a comprehensive market evaluation, Ubuntu Core stood out as the ideal fit.

Download this case study to learn how Screenly:

  • implemented Ubuntu Core with an IoT App Store to deliver seamless over-the-air updates to devices in the field
  • solved partial update and version mismatch issues while maximising security and stability
  • eliminated costs of maintaining in-house update infrastructure
