Verimatrix Establishes the Standard in Cardless Security With Advanced Security Certification for the Broadest Range of Chipsets

Program of Security Certifications With Leading SoC Providers Lower Total Cost of Ownership for Set-Top Box Deployments

NEW DELHI, INDIA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - Convergence India -- Verimatrix, the specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for multi-network, multi-screen digital TV services around the globe, today revealed the latest system-on-chip (SoC) families that have been certified compliant with Verimatrix Advanced Security. Having the industry's broadest range of chipsets available for rapid integration with Verimatrix ViewRight® security provides global digital TV operators with the ultimate freedom of choice when selecting set-top boxes (STBs) that minimize costs, without sacrificing the ability to meet evolving service requirements over the long term.

Cardless security for today's progressive operators utilizes a sophisticated SoC with embedded security features that enables a robust and renewable pay-TV security architecture. The security module is software-based, but sensitive keys and content decryption resides in a highly secure environment that resists attacks by tools traditionally used by smartcard pirates. Additionally the renewability of cardless security is a distinct advantage in times of fast changing threats and business opportunities. Software-based security, in combination with state-of-the-art secure SoC technology, also offers lower CAPEX and OPEX costs for a more favorable total cost of ownership.

"The collaboration with our chipset vendors on Advanced Security certifications ultimately enables operators to escape traditional conditional access, single-network limitations without compromising security or adding complication to the consumer experience," said Petr Peterka, CTO of Verimatrix. "Our cardless solutions offer a security level that is essential to new multi-network service models, otherwise impossible to achieve with legacy systems. We are pleased to be working with leading vendors to power the next-generation of video services around the globe."
