In today's complex environment, millions of devices are accessing digital content from the Internet or Cloud, which brings new threats. This makes content makers and distributors more susceptible than ever to content theft, jeopardizing your precious revenue streams. We help protect you against pirates by securing the distribution of premium content on any device.
Solutions to Antipiracy
In the enterprise world, content protection is often about confidentiality and legal concerns. For media and publishers, it's about making sure content or intellectual property isn't stolen or illegally reproduced.
When your digital files or texts are transferred with the click of a button, or posted on a new site with a simple copy and paste, concerns about copyright go into overdrive. Content security has come a long way since Napster’s first days, when college kids started trading music files like baseball cards.
Piracy continues to affect companies from movie studios to book publishers to video game makers. Online piracy accounts for billions of dollars in lost revenue to the movie industry alone in the United States. Content producers are fighting back with anti-piracy measures and fighting for new laws to protect copyright material.
DRM SDKs are designed to give you a secure framework for Mobile App developers wishing to access licensed content; however these SDKs can only protect themselves. There are instances when personal data, account information and even payment information may be added to the SDK - these must also be protected. The reputational damage of a breach will be significant.
Many streaming apps rely on advertising revenue in their business model. Unlike the pure subscription model, these apps are entirely dependent on the ability to demonstrate to advertisers that their message is seen along with the streamed content. Unfortunately, while the DRM may be secure and deliver the content such that piracy and illegal downloads are prevented, the stripping of these ads is not. It is a relatively trivial attack for a hacker to simply remove the advertising content – again, damaging the revenue stream
