has been confirmed as the global leader of IPTV content security for the fourth consecutive reporting period. Based on MRG’s bi-annual IPTV Market Leader Report, Verimatrix’s content security solutions are the most-widely deployed with the highest number of supported subscribers on a global basis. Verimatrix also claims the number one position in the highly-competitive European region. Since the report first debuted in 2003, Verimatrix is the only IPTV vendor that can claim the top position in its category for four times running.
MRG’s IPTV Market Leader Report tracks the top 120 IPTV hardware/software vendors in 24 regional sub-sectors based on the installed base for six product areas. Based on MRG’s list of Top 25 Operators worldwide, Verimatrix’s solutions are deployed in 11, which nearly quadruples its nearest competitor and gives the company extremely strong growth prospects.
The award-winning Verimatrix Video Content Authority System for IPTV is designed for telecommunications carriers, content aggregators and resellers that must provide content security on their IP networks for live broadcast and Video-on-Demand IPTV services. The software-based content security solution eliminates the vulnerabilities related to smartcard-based architectures through the leverage of mature, proven two-way Internet security protocols, a Public Key Infrastructure public/private key pair system and X.509 digital certificates. A downloadable security system for IPTV clients is not only more secure, it enables less expensive set-top box hardware and can be updated or renewed as required to combat pirate attacks.
