Singapore’s Conversant Leverages Verimatrix Secure Cloud for Multi-DRM Security

  • Expanding VCAS Multi-DRM Support into the Cloud Enables More Flexible Business Models

SINGAPORE — BroadcastAsia 2019 — Verimatrix (Paris:INSD), the leader in redefining the standard for connected devices and services with an innovative combination of security and data analytics, today announced that Singapore-based digital media cloud service provider Conversant is now hosting its Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) in the Verimatrix Secure Cloud™. The agile cloud environment enables a flexible software-as-a-service (SaaS) model to more efficiently support harmonized rights management for multi-DRM video services.

Conversant provides innovative digital media and video solutions for telecoms service providers, content providers, media broadcasters and enterprises in an aim to connect the digital world. Integrated with Conversant’s own CDN and CMS, the VCAS multi-DRM solution provides flexible, end-to-end security for its B2B business models. It enables its customers to provide a transparent consumption experience using cross-DRM domain management while comprehensively protecting premium OTT content.

“The decision to enhance our existing VCAS security framework and transition to a cloud environment seamlessly aligns with our company mission to deliver digital media content securely to any devices, anytime, anywhere,” said Conversant Founder and CEO Kong Wai. “We pride ourselves on offering our customers scalable products and solutions that manage their growing business demands, and it truly fitting that we are able to rely on Verimatrix to do the same for Conversant as we continue to grow our local presence and expand our international reach.”

Using an Amazon Web Services (AWS) virtual cloud environment, the Verimatrix Secure Cloud benefits Conversant with a convenient alternative to on-premise systems and operations. It is backed by the Verimatrix Global Services team to offer 24/7/365 monitoring and includes automatic software updates to ensure its VCAS framework will adapt to changes in security regimes.

“One of the key advantages Conversant gains from taking its VCAS deployment into the Verimatrix Secure Cloud is that it offers a unified DRM solution for all devices, so it doesn’t need to navigate the increasingly complex and fast-moving multi-DRM universe,” commented Verimatrix COO Steve Oetegenn. “By lowering its CAPEX and OPEX with the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, Conversant increases its overall business agility.”
