BIG BREAKING NEWS – ADDRESS STREAMING PRIVACY: Video Software Provider Synamedia Launches Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard [#Synamedia #ServiceGuard] 10/07
Video software provider Synamedia has launched Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard to address streaming piracy, suggesting that for the first time, the media and entertainment industry can systemically address the inherent weaknesses that make it easy for pirates to not only steal content, but also entire OTT services, including redistributing directly from the service provider’s content delivery network (CDN).
By tackling OTT piracy head on, operators, content owners and rights holders protect their content investments, and video service providers can cut infrastructure costs while creating the opportunity to generate additional revenues according to Synamedia.
According to the company, Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard is the first solution on the market to protect content across all open platforms – whether mobile, browsers, or smart TVs – and the first to extend the service protection to the CDN itself, stopping pirates from stealing content at the point of distribution.
With video service providers facing increased pressure from rights holders to fight piracy, the new solution makes it possible to securely distribute content on open platforms by validating that only legitimate subscribers and applications are granted access and receive content.
To protect against common methods used by pirates to steal content and an OTT service, Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard gives each client a unique identity that is not cloneable and allocates secure keys for signing service requests, ensuring all client messages are validated for their authenticity and origin.
The solution will be continuously enhanced as Synamedia’s operational security team detects new vulnerabilities.
As the latest layer of security in the EverGuard portfolio, which provides holistic protection against video piracy, Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard is available as a service and quick to deploy.
As a single offering that supports all client devices, it is easily integrated with existing OTT infrastructure without impacting the user experience or any existing application-service communications.
It addresses the protection of all types of client with a simple software library that can be integrated in the normal development pipeline.
Synamedia OTT ServiceGuard requires no special expertise or support knowledge and adds zero overhead to release schedules or communications costs.
It supports any multi-DRM solution, including Synamedia’s solution.
With an intelligence-led approach to security, Synamedia protects approximately $70 billion in operator revenues every year.
With 30 years’ experience in video security, Synamedia developed the longest unhacked solution on the market while its operational security team has brought many criminals to the attention of law enforcement officials.
Other Synamedia security solutions include: CSFEye for credentials sharing and fraud insight, which addresses the risk of content and service theft through credential misuse; VideoGuard conditional access to protect broadcast video services; and Streaming Piracy Disruption (SPD) to disrupt pirate services.
