By adopting Irdeto App Watch and other anti-piracy solutions, OSN will be able to provide better service to customers across the MENA region.
Through App Watch, OSN will be able to ensure the integrity of the apps running on its Android TV STBs while leveraging Android TV’s benefits. It also provides OSN with resources to take steps to address problematic use of apps and plug-ins.
Irdeto’s solutions will provide OSN with tools to efficiently combat content piracy and protect against malicious use of applications that can impact the performance of its STBs and potential cyberattacks. In addition, Irdeto will provide the TV operator with global and regional reporting on piracy for apps and plug-ins and manage the service on OSN’s behalf to eliminate any unauthorised activity.
Commenting on the contract, Melvin Saldanha, Director of Technology at OSN, said: “Irdeto’s App Watch has made a true difference to our operations as we can protect against potential piracy more efficiently now. Irdeto’s solution will also provide insights on consumer behaviour which will help the company boost advertising strategies, and enhance our portfolio.”
Andrew Bunten, COO of Video Entertainment at Irdeto, added: “We’re excited to renew our partnership with our highly valued partner OSN. The consumer demand for the best quality and safe content is rising. OSN’s adoption of Irdeto App Watch and other anti-piracy solutions allows them to provide excellent service to customers across the MENA region. At the same time, we help to keep their content and customers safe and provide invaluable consumer insights.”
