Verimatrix, Inc. Key Developments

Verimatrix Establishes the Standard in Cardless Security with Advanced Security Certification for the Broadest Range of Chipsets

Verimatrix revealed the latest system-on-chip (SoC) families that have been certified compliant with Verimatrix Advanced Security. Having the industry's broadest range of chipsets available for rapid integration with Verimatrix ViewRight security provides global digital TV operators with the ultimate freedom of choice when selecting set-top boxes (STBs) that minimize costs, without sacrificing the ability to meet evolving service requirements over the long term. Cardless security for progressive operators utilizes a sophisticated SoC with embedded security features that enables a robust and renewable pay-TV security architecture. The security module is software-based, but sensitive keys and content decryption resides in a highly secure environment that resists attacks by tools traditionally used by smartcard pirates. Additionally the renewability of cardless security is a distinct advantage in times of fast changing threats and business opportunities. Software-based security, in combination with secure SoC technology, also offers lower CAPEX and OPEX costs for a more favorable total cost of ownership.
