Its smarter. Its safer. Its VO. Posted: 13/05/2019
Its smarter. Its safer. Its VO.
As streaming of premium video content over broadband IP networks has moved from niche to mainstream, there has been an explosion in the ways that pirates steal and redistribute valuable content for profitability purposes. Pirates used to be experts in DVB technology but now they are also experts of IP. Facing constantly renewing threats, operators have two options: they can either become skilled in the security business and build a new division dedicated to combatting piracy, or they can stay focused on their core video business and rely on an agile security company to fight piracy on their behalf.
