van Gorder will speak on a panel entitled “How Best to Protect Premium Content in a Connected TV World,” which focuses on the key strategies to prevent loss of revenue, best security practices for free and open content delivery models, and the role of DRM.

Consumers’ unsatisfied demands for entertainment and information has led to the development of increasingly innovative and diverse distribution channels, such as IPTV, to deliver premium content for today’s multi-screen world. These “Hollywood 2.0” models, however, face growing challenges in protecting digital assets against hackers whose aim is to subvert the studios’ business models and intellectual property.

Arxan’s application hardening and key protection solutions protect against tampering and reverse-engineering of code and IP in a durable and proven manner which does not impact source code, application functioning or the development process. The company’s technology supports DRM standards and robustness rules for content protection, and safeguards revenue channels from piracy and unauthorized access across diverse connected devices such as desktop, server and embedded applications, including those designed for mobile devices.

Arxan customers span the digital media ecosystem, including Widevine®, a provider of digital entertainment solutions, which uses Arxan’s application hardening technology to protect its DRM platform. Arxan is also a member of the Marlin Partner Program, a market development and promotion program within Marlin, a leading, open DRM standards body, and the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem LLC (DECE LLC), a cross-industry consortium dedicated to creating a consumer-friendly open market for digital content distribution.
