June 30, 2022
Verimatrix, a specialist in powering the modern connected world with people-centred security, has announced that izzi , a Mexican telecommunications firm that offers the country’s popular izzi tv and izzi go services, is set to build upon its existing use of Verimatrix content protection and anti-piracy solutions with the addition of Streamkeeper as well as Extended Threat Defense (XTD) technologies to protect many of their fast-growing iOS, Android and web streaming services plus its Android set-top box services.
With an ever-increasing customer base with millions of users throughout Mexico and a vast array of premium entertainment delivery platforms, izzi decided to expand its use of Verimatrix following success with its current VCAS and Multi-DRM deployments. Verimatrix XTD will soon be used to protect code within all of the company’s Pay-TV apps throughout all izzi platforms, while the company will also benefit from comprehensive intelligence and the latest protections from Streamkeeper, the industry’s first battle-ready cybersecurity solution engineered to both find and shut down OTT pirates looking to steal valuable sporting, Hollywood and other types of content as it’s distributed from the source to the subscriber.
“Verimatrix is pleased to announce izzi as one of the most recent customers to select our Streamkeeper and XTD solutions, as it speaks to our unwavering commitment to innovation and customer service,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer and President at Verimatrix. “Verimatrix’s comprehensive security package provides izzi with continuous endpoint visibility that spans attack pattern detection, prediction and response.”
“Every company has security blind spots and for a large company like izzi, even one small security breach could have a negative impact on our bottom line and on our brand,” said Carlos Eduardo Romero, Video and Hubs Director at izzi. “With multiple media apps to support deployed across millions of devices, we look forward to the benefits that Verimatrix’s enhanced security solutions will provide to our business, which will allow us to focus on serving our customers.”
