Verimatrix Establishes the Standard in Cardless Security With Advanced Security Certification for the Broadest Range of Chipsets

  • Program of Security Certifications With Leading SoC Providers Lower Total Cost of Ownership for Set-Top Box Deployments

NEW DELHI, India — Convergence India — Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today revealed the latest system-on-chip (SoC) families that have been certified compliant with Verimatrix Advanced Security. Having the industry’s broadest range of chipsets available for rapid integration with Verimatrix ViewRight® security provides global digital TV operators with the ultimate freedom of choice when selecting set-top boxes (STBs) that minimize costs, without sacrificing the ability to meet evolving service requirements over the long term.

Cardless security for today’s progressive operators utilizes a sophisticated SoC with embedded security features that enables a robust and renewable pay-TV security architecture. The security module is software-based, but sensitive keys and content decryption resides in a highly secure environment that resists attacks by tools traditionally used by smartcard pirates. Additionally the renewability of cardless security is a distinct advantage in times of fast changing threats and business opportunities. Software-based security, in combination with state-of-the-art secure SoC technology, also offers lower CAPEX and OPEX costs for a more favorable total cost of ownership.

“The collaboration with our chipset vendors on Advanced Security certifications ultimately enables operators to escape traditional conditional access, single-network limitations without compromising security or adding complication to the consumer experience,” said Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix. “Our cardless solutions offer a security level that is essential to new multi-network service models, otherwise impossible to achieve with legacy systems. We are pleased to be working with leading vendors to power the next-generation of video services around the globe.”
