Irdeto, an expert in digital platform security, has announced significant milestones for its Keys & Credentials solution, which is now widely deployed with cable operators in the US and Canada. Irdeto has secured and keyed over 16 million next-generation STBs. Shipments have doubled in the past year, underscoring the desire of operators to stay in control of their technology choices for the lifetime of the platforms and to rapidly provision new services on deployed hardware platforms.
In addition to these deployments, Irdeto has also secured its first tier-one European cable customer for Keys & Credentials, with next-generation STBs scheduled for deployment starting this fall. To date, Irdeto has keyed over 25 different STB models and has provisioned more than 22 million updates to deployed STBs in the field.
“Platform operators everywhere have a compelling need for speed and choice when selecting innovative products and functionalities. They are developing and rolling out new capabilities faster than ever before, and require that features be easily added to already-deployed products in the field,” stated Doug Lowther, CEO, Irdeto. “To manage that, operators require fast, responsive and flexible management of keys and security assets. Irdeto Keys & Credentials enables operators to innovate even faster, while having the freedom to choose solutions that best fit their business strategy.”
