  • INSIDE’s Leading Digital Rights Management (DRM) Product Provides the Necessary Innovations to Secure U-NEXT Revenue and Protect against Illegal Content Redistribution

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France — INSIDE Secure today announced that U-NEXT, one of Japan’s largest providers of video, movie and animated content, has selected INSIDE’s Downloadable DRM Fusion product to meet stringent premium content protection requirements for Android™ and iOS based devices. The challenge of content protection on mobile devices has deterred many content service providers from offering premium content to mobile markets. With INSIDE’s Downloadable DRM Fusion Agent, U-NEXT will enable customers to enjoy premium content on their mobile devices while protecting revenue streams and expanding their business.

“INSIDE’s DRM security technology was highly recommended to us by a trusted company, so we felt very comfortable making a very critical decision,” said Mr. Tsutsumi Tenshin, Vice president of U-NEXT. “INSIDE’s track record is unparalleled and their services best met our requirements by delivering considerable cost savings with reduced time-to-market, increased flexibility and a high-level of adaptability to meet our customers’ specific needs.”

INSIDE is the leading provider of downloadable DRM solutions. INSIDE’s Downloadable DRM Fusion Agent reduces implementation costs and time-to-market dramatically by eliminating the dependencies on device manufacturers for embedded DRM solutions. DRM Fusion Agent is easy-to-integrate with new and existing applications—offering rich features and optimization for new and existing mobile devices in the market.

“INSIDE’s DRM products strengthen security across all platforms including Mobile, Embedded and Desktop, to enable digital media content to be delivered to all legitimate consumers on a variety of viewing devices. It is our mission to provide the right content protection solution for every possible scenario,” said Mr. Martin Bergenwall, Head of the Mobile Security Division of INSIDE Secure. “As U-NEXT grows their subscriber base with major customer acquisitions, they can be assured revenue streams will be protected at every level and that the DRM solution will further strengthen their ability to innovate.”

Downloadable DRM Fusion Agent allows rapid creation of branded secure mobile video and audio apps across all mobile devices, connected set top boxes, and soon also on desktop devices. INSIDE makes content protection available to wide consumer audiences, who can expect easy and convenient access to latest movies, TV shows, and protected audio streams including radio wherever they are.
