CES 2018: Tata Sky, Irdeto Expand Security Partnership


Digital platform security firm Irdeto announced at CES that it has expanded its security partnership with Tata Sky, a content distribution platform providing satellite pay TV services throughout India.

The agreement will better help Tata Sky deliver content securely onto devices across its satellite and OTT platforms in India, with the company implementing Irdeto Cloaked CA and Middleware services. Tata Sky also recently chose Irdeto to enhance its end-to-end solution for OTT services, with Irdeto’s solution geared toward simplifying the operations and workflow by supporting multiple DRM systems.

“We are honored to be selected by Tata Sky as their long-term security partner for Conditional Access and Middleware,” said Irdeto CEO Doug Lowther. “This deal further reinforces Irdeto’s commitment to the dynamic and fast-growing media market in India and we are excited to continue working with Tata Sky to help them meet their business goals.”

Irdeto Cloaked CA and Irdeto Middleware will provide Tata Sky the ability to evolve their service and business models with Irdeto managing the planning and deployment of projects for Tata Sky.

“At Tata Sky, we are committed to providing our customers with the most innovative video services across satellite and online platforms in India,” said Harit Nagpal, CEO of Tata Sky. “To provide consumers with greater choice and convenience, we need a security partner that gives us the freedom to innovate without fear. In Irdeto, we are working with a strong security partner with a forward-looking approach and future-proof solutions. This enables us to continue innovating our solutions and services while giving us the peace of mind that our content is secure.”
