As high quality content (such as 4K UHD) and advanced streaming technology become increasingly available worldwide, it is easier than ever for pirates to illegally acquire and redistribute content. The biggest threat to content owners, broadcasters and operators is internet piracy (a.k.a. content redistribution over the internet, especially for live sports or newly released movies).

Irdeto has a global team of multi-disciplinary specialists and proven methodologies to combat piracy. We have a successful track record in rapidly identifying and disrupting piracy and leveraging our established networks in order to track down pirates and their supply chains.
