BuyDRM Announces KeyOS CloudPack: Encryption in The Cloud as a Service (EaaS)

  • The KeyOS™ CloudPack™ Service provides encryption in the cloud for the most popular consumer formats and DRMs

AUSTIN, Texas — BuyDRM™, a pioneer in Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) and Content Security Services, today announced the imminent release of the KeyOS™ CloudPack™ Encryption as a Service (EaaS) platform. BuyDRM’s unique CloudPack service is a first of its kind enabling content owners, licensees, and distributors to use BuyDRM’s award-winning KeyOS Multi-DRM platform in their cloud of choice including Amazon Web Services, Google Media Cloud and Microsoft Azure. KeyOS CloudPack enables the cloud-based encryption of MSS, HLS and DASH content using all three-popular consumer DRMs: Google Widevine, Apple FairPlay and Microsoft PlayReady.

Encryption as a Service enables content owners to take existing content stored in Amazon’s AWS Cloud or Google’s Media Cloud or Microsoft’s Azure Cloud, and encrypt it using military-grade AES 128-bit encryption compatible with today’s popular consumer devices. BuyDRM identified a significant gap in the existing conventional video workflow and deployed their KeyOS Multipack™ Server into the three most popular cloud platforms thereby moving the studio-required encryption solution “next” to the “in the clear” studio content. The KeyOS CloudPack service will be available as part of the BuyDRM KeyOS MultiKey™ Service platform and available for use in the coming weeks.
