Securing Explosive Growth in Video… Service Providers need all the Firepower.

…o multiscreen devices. Video viewing will make up 80% of global IP traffic by 2019, according to Cisco’s latest VNI report, and that traffic is expected to cross over 24 billion connected devices. This explosive growth of multi-screen IP video is expanding Pay-TV revenue opportunities. It is causing an intersection of Pay TV and OTT video, which is best protected by a combined CAS + DRM strategy to cover all devices on managed or unmanaged networ…
