July 26, 2022
By combining video processing and delivery with next-generation cybersecurity, the Verimatrix Streamkeeper platform simplifies operators’ ability to launch new streaming services more quickly, with advanced anti-piracy countermeasures.

Verimatrix (Euronext Paris: VMX) this month announced that Harmonic is among its first partners to integrate its cloud platform with the Verimatrix Streamkeeper solution.

Designed to reduce streaming video service deployments "from months to minutes" while reaching the greatest amount of consumer devices, Verimatrix says its Streamkeeper Multi-DRM enables video service providers to securely stream with content security delivered from a scalable and globally redundant platform.

The company notes its Streamkeeper Multi-DRM service is specifically designed to delivery-studio endorsed best practices for content protection, with meticulous focus on ensuring superior video viewer experiences.

Overall, Streamkeeper comprises a suite of novel and adaptive cybersecurity technologies that includes DRM to allow video service providers to manage revenue risk in a world of continuously changing threats from video piracy.

Streamkeeper is available in multiple tiers and includes features such as Multi-DRM, a real-time performance dashboard, on-call support integrations and alerts, individual device risk scoring, anti-piracy countermeasures, and more.

Per a statement from the partners, integrating Verimatrix Streamkeeper with Harmonic’s VOS 360 cloud platform "ensures customers will experience next-generation secure video streaming that harnesses the combined power of two highly-trusted industry leaders."

“We’re pleased to announce Harmonic, a cloud leader in the industry, as one of the inaugural integration partners for Streamkeeper,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, COO and president of Verimatrix. “Combining innovative, proven cybersecurity and anti-piracy technologies with Harmonic’s well-known video processing and delivery platform creates a cloud-based, one-stop-shop for OTT service providers, enabling them to gain immediate business value and peace of mind for their content.”

The Harmonic VOS360 platform makes it easy to launch and manage end-to-end video cloud workflows. Capitalizing on the company's expertise in video processing and delivery, the VOS360 platform embeds state-of-the-art microservices, including compression, packaging, origin and SSAI, in a unified software solution for next-gen cloud-based streaming.

By pre-integrating the VOS360 platform with Verimatrix Streamkeeper, the firms say current and new customers can realize the combined benefits of security at scale with a rapid launch for OTT deployments on the cloud.
