DRM plays a big role in keeping your content safe

Unauthorized access to your video or your partners’ video is a big deal. That’s why content owners throughout the industry go to great lengths to control who gets access, when they get access, and how often. But not all methods of content security are equal, or more importantly, right for you. Comcast Technology Solutions works closely with the leading content protection technology providers to meet a wide range of security requirements. One of our DRM partners is Microsoft PlayReady.
