29 Jun Altibox Norway Takes Verimatrix End-to-End Security into the Cloud
Flexible and Scalable SaaS Business Model Lowers Altibox’s Cost of Ownership While Ensuring a Seamless User Experience
AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France & SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Verimatrix, (Paris:VMX), the leader in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, today announced that Altibox Norway, one of the largest regional telecommunication operators throughout Norway and Denmark, is one of the latest European customers to move its security framework into the Verimatrix Secure Cloud.
The move enables Altibox to take advantage of a flexible Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model to host Verimatrix Multi-DRM, as well as hosting its existing Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™) for IPTV. With the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, Altibox can more easily optimize its end-to-end content security with greater flexibility, ease of scale and lower costs.
Scheduled to be rolled out this year, the transition greatly simplifies Altibox’s management of its popular service offering relied upon by more than half a million subscribers. The cloud-managed Verimatrix Multi-DRM and VCAS for IPTV solutions also keep Altibox in continuous compliance with studio-required changes in security regimes, including MovieLabs specifications for 4K/UHD content.
“A seamless cloud security infrastructure is crucial for continually enhancing our ability to scale as demand grows,” said Jarle Johnsen, Head of TV technology at Altibox. “Moving to a content security management platform in the cloud with a trusted partner like Verimatrix empowers us to better meet growing needs as well as consistently exceed our customers’ expectations – all while attaining well-defined business objectives.”
“We’re happy that Altibox has reached to the cloud and adopted our SaaS model for Multi-DRM and VCAS,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, COO of Verimatrix.” With more of its security framework now managed within the Verimatrix Secure Cloud, Altibox can powerfully protect their revenue from fraud and gain further peace of mind through significantly enhanced reliability.”
