Zixi Releases Best-In-Class Security Enhancements with The Addition of DTLS

WALTHAM, MA, MARCH 22, 2018Zixi, the industry leader for enabling dependable, live broadcast-quality video over the public Internet, announces even tougher encryption and security barriers protecting customers streaming live events and live linear video content via public or private IP networks. The Zixi Platform provides best-in-class multi layered security for delivering broadcast-quality live video over IP. In addition to restricted access control and AES encryption, Zixi now provides Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) for its User Datagram Protocol (UDP) video delivery protocols. DTLS is exclusive to the Zixi Platform and makes content delivered via Zixi the most protected UDP transport on the market today.

“Content security is a top priority for content owners using either public Internet or private IP networks to distribute content,” says Uri Avni, CTO of Zixi. “Our DTLS solution for the protection of UDP transport is unique in the industry. We know how valuable live event and live linear content is, so we consistently put significant engineering effort into maintaining and improving upon industry standard protocols that keep our customers’ content safe on any network.”

DTLS is a communications protocol that provides security for streaming video by allowing systems to exchange data with appropriate systems without allowing eavesdropping, tampering or message forgery. While stream-oriented Transport Layer Security (TLS) is intended to provide similar guarantees and is used in protocols across many industries, Zixi’s incorporation of DTLS makes the security of content transported via UDP best-in-class.

The Zixi Platform security protocol stack has been improved on all Zixi software tools. Customers and partners can incorporate the free Zixi SDK and API, allowing applications to become further protected while remaining standards-based compliant. The Zixi SDK and API provide a future proof, cost effective, proven and secure method for delivering true broadcast quality live content over the open Internet.
