Demonstrated Performance, Platform Ubiquity and Customer Support Drive CoreCodec Decision to Embed NanoSSL in CorePlayer Platform

CoreCodec represents exactly what we've designed our security solutions for - cutting edge mobile devices where a premium is placed on performance

Mocana, a software company that delivers comprehensive embedded security solutions for non-PC devices, today announced that CoreCodec, a leading provider of digital media technology, will use Mocana NanoSSL in version 2.0 of CorePlayer, its universal multimedia platform for mobile devices and desktop computers. Because CorePlayer is a ubiquitous multimedia platform, CoreCodec was particularly focused on performance and support across virtually any platform when choosing an embedded security solution. Mocana met all of these requirements.

"Because CorePlayer is a next-generation multimedia platform that extends what you thought were limits in playing back fluid multimedia on mobile devices, we needed an equally unique and innovative security solution that didn't get in the way of a great consumer experience," said Dan Marlin, CEO and president of CoreCodec. "Not only did Mocana prove NanoSSL was the right choice for us, Mocana customers were equally enthusiastic, and our experience so far has been exactly as expected."

CoreCodec is using Mocana NanoSSL specifically to secure the CoreAccount within its CorePlayer platform and to secure the data for its Web Services. Most notable for CoreCodec has been the minimal effort required to integrate NanoSSL into the CorePlayer platform, and the update availability.

"CoreCodec represents exactly what we've designed our security solutions for - cutting edge mobile devices where a premium is placed on performance," said Adrian Turner, CEO of Mocana. "It is no longer acceptable to compromise security in order to deliver a great multimedia experience and our products like NanoSSL were built so that our customers could offer both - a secure platform with the level of performance consumers expect."

CoreCodec's CorePlayer products make it possible to manipulate multimedia content desktop, mobile phone, portable media player, PDA, GPS, or convergence devices. It is used by companies like Joost, SanDisk, DivX and Elgato and gives developer the ability to add audio, video and multimedia capability to a wide range of PC and mobile operating systems, including Windows Mobile, Symbian and Palm with support for Apple iPhone and Google Android coming soon.
