Sky and Cisco reinforced the video security tie to augment content protection for any screen

With the growth in security concerns in a world of cloud-powered and OTT-to-any-screen video services, many service providers are captivating the essential ladder to defend their digital services – spanning Internet, video and mobile – from piracy, hacks and illegal activity.

Sky and Cisco recently made an announcement e\recently that the companies have extended their association to comprise a multi-year digital security agreement in order to hold up the development of Sky video services across any screen.

As a component of the comprehensive agreement, Sky will increase its use of Cisco’s video security portfolio, including the VideoGuard Everywhere conditional access (CAS) and digital rights management (DRM) solutions, to protect video distribution to millions of devices including PC and Mac computers, set-top boxes, tablets and other mobile devices. The agreement also includes extending these security solutions to additional Sky unit in Europe, including Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia.

Our agreement with Cisco provides us with the highest levels of security to protect our investments in content and innovation across the region and across any screen.” said Alun Webber, chief product officer, Sky. “Together, we can build and deliver with confidence, a converged experience between the set-top box and mobile devices to enable secure access for customers to content wherever they are – in or out of the home.”

“At Cisco, security is in our DNA. We have been providing security solutions for the TV industry for decades, and we continue to collaborate with innovative customers like Sky to protect against new forms of digital piracy,” said Conrad Clemson, senior vice president and general manager, Service Provider Platforms and Applications, Cisco. “Our advanced detection technology and security intelligence paired with Sky’s internal team of experts enables us to deliver an unparalleled level of protection through the years ahead.”

Cisco is on the path of constructing the basic, mechanical and virtualized network platform of the potential based on industry-leading software, systems, silicon and services. This allows service providers, media and web companies globally to decrease costs, speed time-to-market, secure their networks and maintain gainful growth.
