David Guetta and Warner Music Announce Innovative Career-Spanning Partnership

David Guetta, one of the biggest figures in global music, with some 50 million record sales and more than 14 billion streams to his name, has entered into a career-spanning, groundbreaking new agreement with Warner Music. The worldwide pact sees Warner Music acquire Guetta’s legendary recorded music catalogue from the last two decades, as well as ink a new deal for future recordings.

Guetta has been one of the defining influences in electronic music and dance culture since the beginning of the millennium, as both a game-changing recording artist and record-breaking live performer. He has worked with some of the biggest artists in the world, including Bruno Mars, Jason Derulo, J Balvin, Justin Bieber, Little Mix, Martin Garrix, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Saweetie, Sia, and many more. His award-winning career includes two prestigious Grammy Awards. As of today, Guetta is the eighth most listened to artist in the world (by monthly listeners on Spotify).

Even during the global pandemic, Guetta has had an extraordinarily busy year, with recent hit singles including ‘Bed’ with Joel Corry and Raye, and ‘Heartbreak Anthem’ with Galantis and Little Mix, both of which have been Top 10 hits around the world. He’s also just released ‘Shine Your Light’ with Master KG and Akon.

In total, Guetta has unveiled eight new tracks in the first five months of 2021. There is much more new music to come, including a new single in July. With his team, he also set up some massive live streams. These “United At Home” performances from Dubai, Miami, New York, and Paris were viewed by more than 125 million people across the globe and raised more than US$1.6 million for various charities.

David Guetta says: “I’m super excited about the new music I’m working on. And even more excited that I have started to play all this new music live to my fans again and they are loving it. This is the right time to renew my creative partnership with my trusted team at Warner Music. This deal is about having the best people around me to ensure I can keep innovating with exciting new projects, while also working my extensive catalogue and continuing to build my career.”

Jean-Charles Carré, David Guetta’s business partner and manager, adds: “A lot of people approached us to express interest in David’s catalogue. We decided to continue our partnership with Warner because they have a knowledge of and passion for David’s music, with a global team that’s constantly working to place it in new contexts. We’re super-excited about some of the deals they’re striking with new partners and their expansion into new territories. This is about proactively working David’s catalogue and new music together.”

Max Lousada, CEO, Warner Recorded Music, says, “It’s rare for an artist to not only define a genre, but transform it. David has been doing that for over two decades – igniting worldwide audiences and influencing whole generations of talent. He continues to have an extraordinary impact on the evolution of dance music, while innovating and collaborating with new voices in dynamic ways. For all he’s achieved so far, there’s so much great music, creativity, and originality still to come. All of us at Warner are very happy to expand our partnership with this global icon.”

Bart Cools, EVP, Global A&R and Marketing, Dance Music, Warner Recorded Music, says: “I’m deeply honoured that David has decided to renew our collaboration. He’s a genre-shaping, era-defining artist whose music touches billions of people around the world. I’ve heard some of his new music, and I know it’ll blow people away. David is a creative spirit who never rests on his laurels. Frankly, he never rests at all. We’ve released eight tracks in the first five months of 2021, and he’s not slowing down.”

Guetta released his debut album, Just A Little More Love, in 2002, followed by influential works such as Guetta Blaster (2004) and Pop Life (2007). It was his 2009 album, One Love, that really took him from the clubs to a mainstream audience, with its hit singles ‘When Love Takes Over’, ‘Gettin’ Over You’, ‘Sexy Bitch’, and ‘Memories’.

His 2011 album, Nothing but The Beat, saw his commercial success reach new heights with the hit singles ‘Where Them Girls At’, ‘Little Bad Girl’, ‘Without You’, ‘Titanium’, and ‘Turn Me On’. This was followed by Listen (2014) and 7 (2018).  

In November 2020, Guetta was voted No. 1 in DJ Magazine’s annual Top 100 DJs poll for the second time, almost a decade after he took the top spot for the first time in 2011.

David Guetta’s team was advised and assisted throughout the process by Jean-Charles Carré and Maximilien Jazani Esq.

NordVPN Teams: Authentication is Critical to Secure a $304.9 Billion Cloud Industry

Gartner estimates that public cloud revenue will grow 18.4% in 2021, reaching a total value of $304.9 billion. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated business transition to the cloud, yet 85% of Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) admit they’ve neglected cybersecurity in favor of quickly enabling remote working.

Today, cloud computing replaces legacy networks by providing increased connectivity, scalability, and efficiency. These traits are vital for a remote workforce, which made up almost half of American employees post-lockdown.

Enterprises choose Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and other solutions employees can use anywhere. While cloud resources are easy to access and integrate into everyday business operations, they face similar threats as traditional corporate perimeters.

“The cyberattack vectors in the cloud environment are the same as in traditional data centers. Software is used that contains vulnerabilities targeted by malicious users. Consumers are mutually responsible with a cloud service provider (CSP) for managing protection and should make appropriate investments in security infrastructure,” says Juta Gurinaviciute, the Chief Technology Officer at NordVPN Teams.

It presents a challenge for cybersecurity teams, as cloud connectivity reduces visibility and control. The CSP can be partially responsible for infrastructure and policies but varies depending on individual agreements and cloud models. Another weak spot is the connection, as users reach cloud assets via the internet instead of on-premise machines.

IP whitelisting – the first step towards a robust perimeter

A growing threat for enterprises is the inappropriate handling of application programming interfaces (APIs). A typical organization uses 363 of them. They help external developers and contractors reach software platforms, and 61% of enterprises adjust their strategies according to API integration.

However, developers often leave an API without strict authentication controls, exposing cloud resources to outside threats. As they open up to the internet, cybercriminals can breach the system and compromise the backend.

Therefore, access management is critical for cloud security. A traditional connection to the cloud is insufficient when employees operate remotely, so many companies opt for IP address management and secure virtual private network (VPN) connections. Yet, the solution known as IP whitelisting demands additional security checks.

“System admins create a list of IP addresses able to access cloud resources, but individual device management is tedious, given that device IP addresses continually change. Business VPNs come with a dedicated server option to ensure uniformity with one stable IP address. Remote users can log into clouds as if they were connecting from corporate premises,” says Gurinaviciute.

IP whitelisting is only a first step in ensuring coherent and robust digital protection. The goal of authentication is to identify the user, not the machine. Otherwise, upon gaining control of a device, cybercriminals may infiltrate the cloud further. It reduces the surface area for attack but with limited capability to fully protect the cloud.

IT teams should further segment the users with access to different assets on the cloud. Marketers, developers, accountants, and business contractors need additional resources to have only limited accessibility. To further limit exposure, consider establishing a Zero Trust Access approach, where employees can only work with particular assets and for a limited time.

“The center of authentication policy is the end-user, so the main goal is correctly identifying them. Enterprises are now strengthening their software-defined perimeters via third-party solutions. They offer multi-factor authentication or biometric logins, adding an extra layer of protection. These methods are the most up-to-date cloud cybersecurity measures and the hardest to breach,” comments NordVPN Teams expert.
