Verimatrix, the enabler in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, has announced that Swisscom, a longstanding Verimatrix customer, has deepened its relationship with Verimatrix to include the full SaaS offering of the Verimatrix Video Content Authority System (VCAS™), migrating from on-premises security to cloud-based anti-piracy operations.
Providing significant efficiencies of scale, the migration from on-premises to a SaaS-based VCAS on Amazon Web Services (AWS) enables Swisscom to future-proof its anti-piracy efforts.
“Having relied upon the on-premises VCAS solution for more than eight years, Swisscom is confident in its move to SaaS-based content security through Verimatrix,” said Marco Lötscher, head of the technology group at Swisscom TV & Smart Products. “The migration makes sense for our business, as it only furthers the value that Verimatrix brings us by enabling more streamlined operations that are accompanied by the reliability of AWS. Our new cloud-based security operations provide Swisscom with the customizability, flexibility and innovation that we need to best serve our customers.”
“It’s long-time customers such as Swisscom that serve as testaments to Verimatrix’s commitment to superior customer service, ongoing innovation, and greater ease of use,” said Andrew Bear, head of VCAS business at Verimatrix. “We’re pleased to announce this latest milestone in Swisscom’s use of Verimatrix VCAS, as it assures all stakeholders that its valuable content is consistently protected at scale.”
