European pay-TV giant Sky has signed a multi-year digital security agreement with Cisco, extending their collaboration to include support the expansion of Sky video services across any screen.
As part of the extended agreement, Sky will expand its use of Cisco’s video security portfolio, including the VideoGuard Everywhere conditional access (CAS) and digital rights management (DRM) solutions, to secure video distribution to millions of devices including PC and Mac computers, set-top boxes, tablets and other mobile devices.
The agreement also includes extending these security solutions to additional Sky entities in Europe, including Sky Deutschland and Sky Italia.
Cisco said it is building the simplified, automated and virtualized network platform of the future based on industry-leading software, systems, silicon and services. This enables service providers, media and web companies worldwide to reduce costs, speed time-to-market, secure their networks and sustain profitable growth.
