Irdeto acquires BayTSP, plans to expand ActiveCloak for Media play

Software security and media technology company Irdeto, which in July bought BD+ Technology from Rovi, today said it had acquired BayTSP, a search, discovery and anti-piracy company in Santa Clara, Calif.

Irdeto said it would use BayTSP to expand its ActiveCloak for Media security portfolio and to help it deliver end-to-end, dynamic security solutions for media companies.

Irdeto CEO Graham Kill said the acquisition "initiates a brand new area of growth into revenue-generating, business insights for our customers."

"The new business intelligence technology, which uncovers hidden market opportunities and insights, opens the door for Irdeto to not only protect our customer's revenue but to have a role in growing it," he said.

BayTSP has provided customers with search and discovery services that identify and track unauthorized digital content, independent of language, across major Internet sites worldwide.
