Manager+Agents

Signiant Manager+Agents (M+A) is the gold standard for scheduled, lights-out, automated transfer of large files between geographically distributed locations. Forming the core transport backbone of most major media companies, this powerful, secure enterprise software helps studios, broadcasters, cable networks and sports organizations move petabytes of data every day throughout their global content supply chains. By providing central control, visibility and tracking of all content deliveries, the Manager+Agents system serves as a hub for file-based workflows that span the globe.

In addition to the central role it plays in the Media & Entertainment sector, Manager+Agents is used by many businesses in other industries where there is a requirement for moving large unstructured data sets around the world. The Manager+Agents (M+A) solution is designed to move large files over any public or private IP network, and to connect to a range of storage types – both on-premises and cloud. M+A’s unique architecture is capable of supporting thousands of endpoints from a central control point, offering the lowest TCO at scale of any solution in its class.
