Irdeto Cloaked CA, the mostly widely deployed software CA in pay TV globally, and Irdeto Middleware will provide Tata Sky with the flexibility to easily evolve their service and business models to meet changing demands. As Tata Sky’s trusted security partner, Irdeto manages the planning and deployment of the project for Tata Sky to ensure the seamless integration of both Irdeto security technology and third-party solutions.
