The industry veteran will work closely with the company’s commercial and engineering teams across the globe to develop security solutions that best meet the needs of Pay TV and OTT operators in today’s changing media landscape.

Brown, who has held similar positions at both Irdeto and Piksel, has more than 15 years’ experience in creating premium Internet video platforms.

Brown said, “Friend MTS is really making waves in the industry and I’m excited to be a part of that. I’ve been in the industry long enough to know that combatting piracy is no small feat but Friend MTS has a great set of products based on smart technology that will actually make a difference.”
