Adding DRM further enhances CDNetworks’ media security offering and is expected to deliver higher levels of digital content protection for customers across all business sectors, especially those in the OTT/education field.
SINGAPORE, June 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — CDNetworks, an APAC-leading network to deliver edge as a service, today announces its partnership with Irdeto to integrate CDNetworks’ media delivery platform with built-in DRM capabilities. This integrated solution provides content creators and distributors with one-stop digital content protection for their video streaming business.
Synergizing CDNetworks’ video streaming with DRM capabilities into an integrated solution gives content creators and distributors the power to maximize the engagement and revenue potential of their video service by safeguarding digital content against illegal streaming activities. The benefits are clear, empowering content creators and distributors to use CDNetworks for their DRM and media delivery requirements, without having to integrate separate third-party DRM systems and configure authorization on the CDNetworks’ platform. This streamlining accelerates DRM implementation and reduces the amount of effort required for integration.
"With the rise of digital media piracy, DRM has become an essential tool for content creators and distributors. By adding this technology to our platform, we now have more comprehensive ways to help our clients protect their valuable content and ensure that it is accessed only by authorized users," said Doyle Deng, Head of Global Marketing and Product of CDNetworks. "We are excited to announce our cooperation with Irdeto to further enhance our media security capabilities. This integration reinforces our commitment to delivering the fastest and most secure digital experience at the Edge."
