    Viaccess-Orca recently ran a set of dedicated security services for a major Pay TV operator during 30 major football games televised in EMEA. These services targeted subscription sharing in the form of card sharing over the Internet and control word (CW) redistribution over satellites, techniques that allow illegal distributors to resell pirate set-top-boxes or subscriptions to television bouquets at a very low price.

    Viaccess-Orca’s solutions detected and stopped sharing services reaching hundreds of thousands of illegitimate end users by tracking CW redistribution over satellites via dozens of pirate set-top boxes and detecting hundreds of IP addresses that were then filtered with the cooperation of impacted Internet service providers.

    The company is showcasing its engagement and security solutions, designed to offer effective responses to the growing threat of content services piracy, during the ANGA COM Exhibition & Congress, Tuesday to Thursday this week in Cologne.
