Irdeto, the Netherlands-based provider of content authentication services to media companies and others,  made two big announcements at NAB this week.

Netflix has licensed Irdeto’s Cloakware Embedded Security as part of its suite of content protection tools for the tens of thousands of TV episodes and movies it streams instantly to its members. 

The company also announced an alliance with Adobe Systems to support Adobe® Flash® Access 2.0 content protection technology for the secure delivery of premium content.

Earlier this year we spoke with Jan Steenkamp, VP of Americas for Irdeto, for an overview of the industry.  We have republished the interview today.
