Verimatrix Focuses on Cloud Security and Enters IoT at IBC 2017

Verimatrix is extending its security technology into the IoT (Internet of Things) with the launch of its Vtegrity package at IBC 2017.

The San Diego based specialist in pay TV revenue security has been promoting the IoT as a major new sector for its technology for some time and is now ready for the formal launch with the aim of exploiting its proven expertise in renewable security. This it considers absolutely critical for protecting IoT services, along with the ability to incorporate security at the design stage into client devices and infrastructure components as well as the network. Verimatrix will be underscoring its experience in IP and software based security, as well as its extension into cloud based options, as a common foundation connecting its core pay TV technology with the new Vtegrity IoT package.

So the firm will be presenting managed, cloud-hosted alternatives for its Verspective, MultiRights OTT Plus and Video Content Authority System (VCAS) offerings in the shape of Verimatrix Secure Cloud. At the same time, the company will continue to push the case for software-centric security architectures as the future for progressive operators seeking to simplify their multi-network, multi-device, multi-DRM environments. Verimatrix will also flag the growing role of data analytics, which again is a common thread linking pay TV with the IoT.

Specifically, on the pay TV front Verimatrix is showing four related packages. Firstly, is Verspective, its extensible suite designed from the ground up for video security, now incorporating client device data collection technology acquired from UK based audience analytics firm Genius Digital. Secondly is StreamMark, its server-side forensic watermarking technology recently extended to include adaptive bitrate (ABR) and HTTP live streaming (HLS) to support early release windows and other premium content business models. Thirdly is MultiRights OTT Plus, a recently-launched multi-screen and multi-DRM package for premium content security and monetization. This incorporates the capabilities of Verspective Operator Analytics as well as StreamMark and VideoMark forensic watermarking. Finally is VCAS Ultra, the latest VCAS architecture providing profiles for broadcast, hybrid, OTT and multi-DRM deployments.
