Synamedia has launched what the video software provider is describing as an “intelligence-first security model” aimed at eradicating the streaming pirates and protecting the revenues of the legitimate rights holders.
Yael Fainaro, Senior Vice President, Security, Synamedia told an online press briefing that it was collecting data to create a picture from a wide variety of sources. “The picture we’re seeing is looking quite grim for content owners and video service providers in Europe on its own, we are seeing more than 20 million active subscribers to illicit pirate sites with growth of more than 25 percent over the last 12 to 15 months.”
Synamedia is redesigning its piracy operations centre, Synamedia Everguard, incorporating big data analytics and creating a list of recommended actions against a set of devices, user accounts and pirate streaming sites.
A rich new UI for the Streaming Piracy Disruption service allows operational security personnel to fine-tune the counter-piracy operations centre recommendations if required to meet specific business needs.
“This is why we are coming to market with an analytical anti-piracy solution that includes as the basic and the first layer, the best in class security solution, the highest and most robust wall you can you can find to prevent as much as possible pirates from offering legitimate access to the our customer’s service and from content leaking. If we don’t put up the most robust wall then the war would become impossible to fight,” explains Fainaro. “But then assuming that the content has already leaked. Our solution includes strong and dynamic intelligence platforms that maps the entire ecosystem.
Synamedia has over years’ experience in video security solutions, and developed the longest unhacked solution on the market. Since its inception, Synamedia’s operational security team has brought many criminals to the attention of the authorities, protecting approximately $70 billion in operator revenues every year.
