The transition, due to take place later this year, will enable Altibox to take advantage of a flexible Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to host Verimatrix Multi-DRM, as well as hosting its existing Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS) for IPTV.
Commenting on the development, Jarle Johnsen, Head of TV technology at Altibox, said: “A seamless cloud security infrastructure is crucial for continually enhancing our ability to scale as demand grows.
“Moving to a content security management platform in the cloud with a trusted partner like Verimatrix empowers us to better meet growing needs as well as consistently exceed our customers’ expectations – all while attaining well-defined business objectives.”
Asaf Ashkenazi, COO of Verimatrix, added: “We’re happy that Altibox has reached to the cloud and adopted our SaaS model for Multi-DRM and VCAS.
“With more of its security framework now managed within the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, Altibox can powerfully protect their revenue from fraud and gain further peace of mind through significantly enhanced reliability”.
