Cisco and Sky have announced an important extension to their video security collaboration to support Sky digital services across any screen (STB, computers, tablets, other mobile devices) including for Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia. The multi-year agreement expands the use of Cisco’s video security portfolio, including the VideoGuard Everywhere conditional access and DRM solutions. The security solutions are designed to protect television companies from piracy, hacks and other illegal activity.
“Our agreement with Cisco provides us with the highest levels of security to protect our investments in content and innovation across the region and across any screen,” explains Alun Webber, Chief Product Officer at Sky. “Together, we can build and deliver – with confidence – a converged experience between the set-top box and mobile devices to enable secure access for customers to content wherever they are – in or out of the home.”
Conrad Clemson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Service Provider Platforms and Applications at Cisco, adds: “Our advanced detection technology and security intelligence, paired with Sky’s internal team of experts, enables us to deliver an unparalleled level of protection through the years ahead.”
