Irdeto to Deliver Secure Content Worldwide Using Adobe Flash Access 2.0

Irdeto, the global leader in securing and delivering premium content and digital assets, today announced an alliance with Adobe Systems Incorporated to support Adobe® Flash® Access 2.0 content protection technology for the secure delivery of premium content to audiences around the globe. Today’s announcement builds on a long history of collaboration between Adobe and Irdeto and is designed to simplify and accelerate the secure delivery and monetization of premium online content for operators and service providers.

“Adobe is dedicated to enabling media and enterprise companies to build profitable businesses around online video,” said Florian Pestoni, principal product manager, Rich Media Solutions at Adobe. “Irdeto’s support for Adobe Flash Access 2.0 creates opportunities for content providers to distribute content securely to consumers worldwide.”

The Adobe Flash Platform is the leading online video distribution platform: according to a December 2009 comScore Media Metrix® report*, approximately 75 percent of online videos viewed worldwide are delivered using Adobe Flash technology. With the introduction of Adobe Flash Access 2.0, a robust content protection and monetization solution, premium content providers can distribute protected content directly to the Adobe Flash Player runtime, extending their reach to over 98 percent of Internet-enabled computers.

“We are pleased to expand our long standing relationship with Adobe, leveraging our leading security technology to deliver, protect and monetize premium digital content,” said Jan Steenkamp, VP of Americas for Irdeto. “The history of premium content tells us that if content has value and is not restricted in access, the opportunity to monetize that content is lost. Irdeto’s alliance with Adobe is a significant step forward in building an innovative system that can automatically and securely deliver content across multiple platforms and accommodate change as rapidly as consumers themselves.”

Irdeto’s Adobe Flash Access 2.0 license service will be available as a hosted service leveraging Irdeto’s existing international data centers and infrastructure and deploying Irdeto’s patented technology that speeds and scales the delivery of licenses to mass market audiences. Adobe Flash Access 2.0 has already been endorsed by the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE).

“A consumer’s digital day is complex and ever evolving, and no two companies know that better than Irdeto and Adobe,” said Graham Kill, CEO of Irdeto. “With this expanded alliance, Adobe can rest assured knowing that whenever content and consumers come together, Irdeto will protect the value. Our solutions are uniquely aligned to meet the rapidly changing digital landscape and the needs of companies working to succeed in the digital content economy.”

Irdeto helps the world’s leading content owners and distributors, device manufacturers and software companies bridge the gap between the advancements in the digital economy and the needs of consumers. The company’s versatile technology platform enables customers to swiftly and securely bring high value digital assets and premium content to market for maximum return on investment and creation of new and profitable revenue streams.

Adobe and Irdeto will showcase their latest industry-leading solution for the secure management and distribution of digital audiovisual content April 12-15, 2010, at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cloud-Native thinking and Serverless Computing are now the norm in financial services, manufacturing, telco, healthcare, transportation, energy, media, entertainment, retail and other consumer industries, as well as the public sector. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
