Verimatrix (Euronext Paris:VMX) announced a partnership with Akamai (NASDAQ:AKM) to offer global enterprise server-side watermarking capabilities. Verimatrix' server-side watermarking is being pre-integrated with Akamai's Intelligent Edge Platform to protect premium video content.

Verimatrix Watermarking consists of session-based, user-specific tracking and source identification. It is designed to protect against various attack types, including compression, recording/capturing, re-streaming, collision and geometric manipulation.

"Akamai's scalable and secure edge watermarking integrations are designed to help our customers identify pirates' attempts to capture content and minimize their means of illegal distribution, and a partnership with a leading watermarking provider like Verimatrix further bolsters our ability to do so," said Amit Kasturia, Senior Manager of Media Product Management at Akamai. "When Verimatrix is the security provider of choice for a customer, we have the flexibility to support easy integration right out of the box, so they can begin securing their content and protecting revenues right away."

In other Verimatrix news, the company has introduced Verimatrix Embedded DRM, a toolkit to support the implementation and integration of embedded video security solutions. Part of the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS), Verimatrix Embedded DRM offers point-to-point protection to address the gaps that occur when video content is delivered beyond the common TV, computer or mobile device connections. For example, premium content, such as Hollywood movies, require a secure connection all the way to a compliant display, such as a video player in an airplane connected to the video displays located in each passenger seat. Failure to encrypt the 'handshake' from the player to each display can be a compliance violation and a content protection gap.
