Securing experiences at the speed of life ain’t easy. Yet our customers present this formidable challenge to us day in and day out. Every click, tap, and swipe, along with every start, buffer, and stream, must unfold seamlessly to guarantee an optimal consumer experience. 

Delivering billions of video viewership licenses quietly behind the scenes, mostly unnoticed, is what we do best. In the speed story, seamless security is the unsung hero. So, we thought we’d take you behind the curtain, showcasing three short success stories, revealing the challenge, solution, and advantages of Verimatrix’s people-centered, frictionless (and often unseen) protection.

Enhancing Content Security: Swisscom's Transition with Verimatrix
