As web-based streaming applications and players grow in complexity and popularity, piracy and attacks targeting these apps is also rising, prompting the need for a defense-in-depth approach. Web App Client-Side Protection is one of the key categories in application security and Jscrambler is recognised as a leader in this space. With Jscrambler’s client-side security platform, ExpressPlay customers benefit from leading technology that secures their video delivery platforms, reducing exposure to pirates while also protecting intellectual property and sensitive user data.
Jscrambler also protects and hardens the client-side watermarking solutions offered as part of ExpressPlay Watermarking and Anti-Piracy services against tampering and bypass. It ensures adherence to content license agreements by protecting the source code of the player and the watermarking client, while making sure that they are executed in the expected environment and by authorised users. Additionally, since user credentials and financial information pass through the client-side application at some point in time, this solution safeguards users’ data.
ExpressPlay Anti-Piracy and Watermarking service incorporates content protection that features web piracy monitoring and legal enforcement for linear, live, and VOD content. The service combines online piracy monitoring using fingerprinting with watermarking technology that supports fast extraction of payloads in illegally redistributed content. ExpressPlay Watermarking enables a holistic live and on-demand content protection strategy that allows watermarking-related applications to be managed together with ExpressPlay multi-DRM service. ExpressPlay Watermarking fulfils the requirements of MovieLabs’ Enhanced Content Protection (ECP) specification.
Jscrambler’s client-side security platform leverages real-time threat analytics and runtime protection to seamlessly protect the client-side of web and mobile apps. By protecting every app component, from code to runtime, this platform detects client-side threats in real-time, provides actionable insights about each threat and blocks the source of the malicious behaviour. As a result, Jscrambler’s client-side security platform effectively prevents intellectual property theft, piracy, automated abuse and data leakage, while driving compliance with data protection regulations and application security standards.
