Safeguarding your video content: Essential protection measures

In today's digital landscape, ensuring the security and integrity of your video content is paramount. Without adequate protection measures in place, your valuable assets could be at risk of unauthorized access, piracy, and copyright infringement. Let's explore some key methods for safeguarding your video content.


This method restricts access to content based on geographical locations or specific IP addresses/CIDR blocks. By implementing geo-protection, you can control where your content is accessible, ensuring compliance with licensing agreements and regional restrictions.

Enhanced Proxy Detection

Building upon geo-protection, expanded proxy detection enhances security by identifying and blocking attempts to bypass geographical restrictions using VPN and proxy servers. Akamai's Enhanced Proxy Detection (EPD) lets you use the GeoGuard service provided by GeoComply to apply proxy detection and location spoofing protection.

Token Authentication

Token authentication enhances access control by encrypting URLs with a shared secret between the encryption system and the Content Delivery Network (CDN). This versatile method can be implemented across various contexts, including CDNs, web applications, APIs, and more.

Media Encryption

To ensure the confidentiality and integrity of multimedia files during storage and transmission, media encryption encrypts streams individually for each playback session. This is based on the stream itself, the user and the time of access. By focusing on securing the content itself, media encryption is a lightweight alternative if the rights owners do not require a fully-fledged Digital Rights Management (DRM) solution.

Digital Rights Management (DRM)

DRM empowers content owners to control how viewers consume and share their content by incorporating access control, usage policies, and rights management. Third-party providers like EZDRM and Irdeto offer comprehensive DRM solutions, ensuring robust protection across various platforms and devices. There are three primary DRM systems in use for streaming content today:

  • FairPlay: Developed by Apple, FairPlay is compatible with Apple products such as iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac OS X.

  • PlayReady: Developed by Microsoft, PlayReady is supported on a wide range of products, including Edge Browser, Xbox, Chromecast, Android TV, and Smart TVs.

  • Widevine: Developed by Google, Widevine is available on Google Chrome Browser, Android, Chromecast, Android TV, and Smart TVs.


Watermarking enables the individualization of content output, allowing recordings to be uniquely identified and traced back to their source. By embedding marks within the content, watermarking serves as a deterrent against piracy and facilitates retrospective copyright enforcement.

Identity and Access Management 

Preventing unauthorized user usage and credential abuse, Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions offer user authentication mechanisms to deter account sharing and credential misuse. Identity providers such as Okta (including Auth0) and Akamai Identity Cloud offer robust IAM solutions, ensuring secure access to your video content.

In summary, the implementation of robust protection measures not only safeguards your video content but also preserves the trust of your audience and partners. By staying proactive and vigilant, you can navigate the evolving challenges of content protection with confidence and peace of mind.
