Who is Signiant?

Signiant has a history rooted in developing file transfer software for some of the world’s largest companies. Originally created to move huge code bases around the world for global software development, Signiant’s solutions are useful wherever there is a critical need to move large data sets with security, reliability, and speed.

Media & Entertainment was the first sector to broadly adopt the technology, with Signiant’s file transfer software becoming indispensable in the mid 2000s as the industry transitioned from videotape and film to file-based workflows. With early adopters like Disney, NBC, and Apple iTunes using our on-premises solutions as enterprise-wide elements of their global technology infrastructures, Signiant quickly emerged as a trusted partner to leading media companies. Most of the world’s mission-critical media workflows are powered by our Manager+Agents enterprise software.

Since then, we’ve continued to specialize in the high-speed transfer of large files around the world and into the cloud, deepening our commitment to the media business while also becoming instrumental to other industries. From big data analytics, satellite imagery, and gaming to life sciences, oil & gas, and high tech, our extreme extreme file transfer products are of strategic importance to an increasing array of businesses — Microsoft, Texas Instrument, Adobe, and Parexel (one of the largest clinical research organizations in the world) all rely on Signiant.

While we’ve worked with a range of well-known big players, our commitment to developing true SaaS solutions makes our software scalable to any size business. We’re excited that our hybrid SaaS solution, Media Shuttle, is spreading among some of the most creative and hard working production and post-production houses around the world. And we are already seeing our most recent new product, SkyDrop, which specializes in accelerating content into and out of cloud-based object storage (Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure and/or Google Cloud Platform), being adopted for ingenious projects we couldn’t have anticipated.

We love serving the imaginative and highly intelligent customers we get to interact with everyday. Their work inspires us to keep innovating and stay at the head of our field. And we hope Signiant software helps ours customers do the same.
