Nagra’s modular Active Streaming Protection delivers security along with analytics for better business insights and decision-making capabilities.
Zee5, India’s home-grown video streaming platform, has selected Nagra’s Active Streaming Protection to protect its content and optimise business decisions. Besides its scalable multi-DRM session management capabilities, the Nagra solution also provides security monitoring and analytics.
Speaking about the agreement, Kishore AK, Chief Technology Officer at Zee5, said: “We set out to find an alternative provider for our existing multi-DRM solution and Nagra exceeded our expectations in terms of their capabilities and feature set. After carrying out an extensive benchmark of the DRM Landscape, we zeroed in on Nagra based on their scalability, improved security analytics, and most of all the responsiveness of their team. It sets up well for our growth plans as we onboard more premium content and live sports.”
With more than 100m active users per month globally as per Q3 FY 2022-2023 and managing an extensive range of content, Zee5 required a system that could easily scale when needed to address peak times of high-volume content delivery. With Nagra’s Active Streaming Protection framework, service providers—like Zee5—have access to a comprehensive content protection offering that goes beyond multi-DRM.
The Nagra solution delivers a layer of data-fueled intelligence and reporting to help identify threats and empower Zee5 to make the best business decisions possible. This also provides Zee5 with the ability to pass this intelligence to its streaming partners. Nagra’s security analytics deliver the opportunity to spot trends and patterns that are key to running a secure offering to improve the detection of threats and address illicit content sharing.
Stéphane Le Dreau, Senior Vice President of APAC at Nagra, added: “After Zee5’s in-depth search to find the right content protection partner, we are proud to have been selected and to lend our industry expertise to one the major players in the rapidly growing Indian market. Our solutions are proven and trusted to secure some of the largest service providers in the world. With Nagra, Zee5 now has a level of content protection and security intelligence to enable even greater control of their operation.”
