Saudi Telecom Company subsidiary, Intigral, just implemented a range of security and anti-piracy tools and services from Irdeto for its premium Jawwy TV platform. Intigral’s goal is to fight content piracy and protect Jawwy TV customers from malicious applications by implementing Irdeto Keys Credentials (K&C) and App Watch on their Android TV set-top boxes.

We are impressed by Irdeto’s ability to provide flexible content security solutions in a short period of time to boost our competitiveness with the customised delivery environment, which further instills our trust in this partnership”.

On the other hand, Shane McCarthy, Irdeto’s COO of Video Entertainment, added: “We’re witnessing an increasing OTT demand for digital content worldwide, with consumers looking for the best quality content as well as the best-delivered service. The adoption of Irdeto technologies allows Jawwy TV to provide its customers with excellent service while we support and manage network devices, help to keep their content and customers safe, provide invaluable consumer insights and improve the customer experience by alerting them of unstable and malicious apps”.
