end-to-end security partnering offering for media companies, and also initiates
a brand new area of growth into revenue-generating, business insights for our
customers with the valuable media consumption data we now have access to,” said
Graham Kill, CEO of Irdeto.

aggressively fight digital theft, and BayTSP’s monitoring capabilities will
help us take digital piracy detection to an even higher level. The new business
intelligence technology, which uncovers hidden market opportunities and
insights, opens the door for Irdeto to not only protect our customer’s revenue
but to have a role in growing it,” Kill added.

Comcast, Sony and Toshiba, Irdeto identified a unique opportunity for BayTSP’s
intellectual property and patent licenses to complement its current portfolio

with Irdeto ActiveCloak for Media. In addition, Irdeto will offer BayTSP’s
unique business intelligence solution, providing customers with actionable
market feedback and analytics that maximize content distribution and associated

vision of creating an environment where digital media is not stolen or misused
online,” said Stuart Rosove, CEO of BayTSP, who will remain with Irdeto.
