Albanian operator ABCOM selects CryptoGuard CAS

September 14, 2018

CryptoGuard, a provider of content protection for Pay-TV distribution on any platform, DVB, IPTV and OTT, has announced that ABCOM has selected CryptoGuard as its new security partner and implemented CryptoGuard CAS. ABCOM is a leading MSO in Albania offering digital Cable TV services since 2010. In the beginning of 2018 the operator had to screen the market and re-evaluate the CAS alternatives due to exit of their long-term partner in this area.

“CAS is a ‘make or break’ factor in the digital TV industry to secure the revenue stream while distributing the proper content to right customers. In this journey we have had an extensive experience with various CAS providers aiming to get the best compromise quality that fits best to the size of our operations. CryptoGuard fulfilled the abovementioned criteria due to extensive knowledge of actual market situation, envisioning the future, supported by adequate teams in the pre-sales, sales and technical support. In the early months of implementation, we’re satisfied by the level of cooperation paving the road for long term partnership ahead.” Said Vladimir DEDOLLI Chief Technical Officer at ABCOM.

Krzysztof Wieczorek, Sales Director CEE & CIS at CryptoGuard: “We are very happy to be working with ABCOM which further strengthens our presence in the Balkan region. CryptoGuard’s advanced features, scalability and simplicity in integration along with a wide selection of consumer devices were some of the factors convincing ABCOM to select CryptoGuard CAS as the winning solution.

Kjell Carlswärd, CEO at CryptoGuard adds: “ABCOM is the latest addition of major operators to select CryptoGuard CAS for their content security needs. This proves the appeal of a future-proof and cost-effective CAS platform with support for DRM and OTT for anywhere, any device viewing experience.

CryptoGuard CAS offers ABCOM a foundation for growth and deployment of new services as their market evolves”
