Verimatrix Adds TV Everywhere Authentication Capabilities with the Acquisition of Akamai Identity Services

Oct 25, 2018

Verimatrix, a specialist in securing and enhancing revenue for network-connected devices and services, announced the acquisition of the assets that comprise the Akamai Identity Services (AIS) product from Akamai, the intelligent edge platform for securing and delivering digital experiences. Adding TV Everywhere (TVE) type service capabilities to the Verimatrix portfolio underscores the importance of a common authentication system to reduce friction within the content distribution workflow and ultimately support new ways to increase the value of the content chain on a global level.

AIS enables content providers and video service operators to bring authenticated TVE services to market by providing a common framework for implementing and scaling proprietary provider-operator relationships. Verimatrix will offer the enhanced and rebranded authentication services as an integrated component of the Verimatrix Content Authority System (VCAS) and Viewthority, the newly launched connected content distribution platform, as well as a standalone solution in order to best match content providers’ needs.
