Mexcian pay-TV provider StarGroup has selected Irdeto to secure the distribution of content to its 100,000 subscribers.

Serving 22 states in the Republic of Mexico, StarGroup will leverage Irdeto Cloaked CA to securely deliver premium content through its StarTV satellite service.

“Providing our customers with premium content and services is the top priority for StarGroup,” said Bruno Pruneda, director general, StarTV. “Irdeto has not only been a trusted technology provider, but also a valuable partner who understands StarGroup’s needs and supports our company’s mission to provide our customers with high quality content and optimal service. Our partnership with Irdeto gives us the peace of mind that our content and services are secured, allowing us to continue to grow and develop our business throughout Mexico and Latin America.”

To assure content owners that their assets are protected against theft or viewing in unauthorised territories, operators must deploy a conditional access solution. Recently audited and certified by Farncomb (Cartesian), the Irdeto Cloaked CA solution provides a secure chipset that is complemented by Irdeto’s software obfuscation and whitebox cryptography.

“As operators launch new technologies like StarGroup’s StarTV service, it is critical to ensure that the delivery of premium content is protected,” said Paul Ragland, VP of sales for the Americas, Irdeto. “Irdeto provides operators like StarGroup with a unique, 360 security strategy that provides premium content protection across the content value chain. Our partnership with StarGroup protects their services from threats like piracy while providing a renewable and flexible security solution so they are able to provide customers with an optimal viewing experience.”
