A 3-Dimensional Approach
to Content Security

As the recognized leader in software-based security solutions for premier service providers, Verimatrix has pioneered the 3-Dimensional Security approach that offers flexible layers of protection techniques to address evolving business needs and revenue threats.


Strategy and Positioning

As the recognized leader in IP and cardless revenue security solutions for progressive digital TV operators, the company has leveraged its innovative 3-Dimensional Security approach to provide a harmonized rights platform for content delivery to a wide range of devices over new hybrid broadcast and IP network combinations. This approach offers flexible layers of protection techniques to address evolving business needs and revenue threats in these dimensions:

  • Network dimension – Best of breed encryption and harmonized multi-network rights management for the widest range of delivery networks, including broadcast satellite, cable and terrestrial, IPTV and hybrid, video-on-demand (VOD), mobile, Internet TV and OTT services.
  • Device dimension – Beyond the living room to computers and on-the-go applications. The technology approach includes a hardened, downloadable Verimatrix ViewRight ONE™ security core for set-top boxes (STBs), PCs and Macs, as well as off-the-shelf consumer electronics including iOS and Android devices using HTTP adaptive bitrate streaming.
  • Threat dimension – Since not all threats to digital TV security look alike, VCAS offers a layered set of tools and techniques to enable a flexible system protection profile. Features such as hardening, fingerprinting, watermarking and clone detection help operators address potential revenue loss from theft of service while rapid renewability provides a fast countermeasure capability.

VCAS fully leverages the company’s continuous innovations in each of these three dimensions to provide a superior level of content and revenue security. Proven cryptographic and secure electronic transaction technologies, together with increasingly sophisticated features of client device chipsets, enable VCAS to offer a more renewable and flexible security implementation than legacy architectures. Verimatrix VCAS architectures and market solutions have also been independently audited by Telcordia, Farncombe, and Merdan.
