MwareTV Partners with Irdeto for Advanced Content Protection


MwareTV, a cloud-based multi-tenant TV platform provider, has formed a partnership with Irdeto, known for digital platform cybersecurity.

The agreement allows Irdeto Control, a DRM platform, to be fully integrated into MwareTV’s IPTV/OTT distribution platform.

The first implementation of Irdeto with MwareTV will be rolled out at shared services provider MultTV in Brazil.

MultTV will offer MwareTV’s IPTV/OTT platform to its Brazilian ISPs as well as other service providers. MwareTV’s new platform will enable ISPs to launch their own TV service with a fully customized interface on Samsung Tizen and LG WebOS SmartTVs, Android and Android TV devices, iOS, AppleTV, FireTV and Roku. ISPs will have the option to use their own content or MultTV’s extensive library of content and channels or a mix of both.

The issues of content security, revenue protection and cyber threats are uppermost in the minds of all content companies. Irdeto Control, the company’s multi-DRM offering servicing some of the world’s largest OTT platforms, issues some 3.7 billion licenses a month.
