Brief Overview

As demand for high-quality, digital content continues to grow exponentially, content owners are adapting and shifting distribution strategies to meet the evolving landscape. There are hundreds of streaming Video on Demand (VOD) platforms around the world, and that number only continues to grow.

Irdeto’s Online Piracy Detection is a managed service that combines expert piracy oversight with powerful cloud-computing technology to detect, verify, and takedown pirated content, maximizing viewership revenue and safeguarding live events and video on demand content from unauthorized access and redistribution.

It provides automated scanning, augmented by expert analyst review to identify pirated content online, enforcing all illegal streams from social media, streaming sites, Kodi and search engines to mitigate spread of pirated content. It gives clients an excellent and detailed overview of what happens with their content, making it visible what the piracy problem is.

The service includes live, web, P2P (enforcement & business intelligence), crisis, search engine link removal, Facebook and YouTube fingerprint system integration & account management and micropiracy coverage. Through this service, we are able to monitor and protect everything from live events, live linear channels, movies, TV shows to games (recorded gameplay, credential sharing, and illegal s/w download), special events (Oscars), crisis/leaked content, and ad-hoc content leak requests.

Irdeto’s scalable, cloud-based automated crawling technology and a team of multi-disciplinary specialists are highly effective at combatting online piracy. Irdeto has a successful track record in rapidly identifying and disrupting piracy while leveraging established networks to track down pirates and their supply chains to help our customers safeguard their valuable assets.
