LAUSANNE, Switzerland — Fastcom Technology SA a leading company in security services for mission critical devices, announces the partnership with Telefónica for the use of the MCAS solution. The MCAS solution of Fastcom allows Telefónica to securely sign the software images to be installed on the Proteus set-top-boxes (STBs). As a 24/7 available managed service, the MCAS allows Telefónica to rapidly and professionally sign the software Proteus images, independently from any vendor.

The challenge: In order to be more efficient and reactive to the market requirements, Telefónica needs to autonomously secure the new software versions of the Proteus STBs. Therefore, a solution for securely signing the STB software images is required. This solution shall permit Telefónica to be independent from any vendor.

The solution: The MCAS is complete License Authority Services (LAS) offering a secure signing tool. Implemented as a managed service, the MCAS signing tool is available 24/7 online, while data are stored in Switzerland. Independent from any vendor, the MCAS service professionally centralizes all the signing activities of the different Telefónica teams around the world, from R&D phase to production phase.

“The MCAS signing tool allows Telefonica to efficiently carry out the signing of our Proteus software images, independently from any vendor. This results in more flexibility and a better customer-orientation.” – Dr. Fabrice Moscheni, CEO of Fastcom Technology SA.
