SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 11, 2016 — whiteCryption, an Intertrust company that provides advanced application security solutions, and Naver, South Korea’s premier Internet company and parent of LINE Corporation, today announced that Naver has licensed whiteCryption’s Code Protection and Secure Key Box software solutions to protect the company’s global live streaming service.
Naver currently has partnerships with Korea’s major entertainment and talent agencies, including SM and YG, and offers its global live streaming service to stream live concerts and the daily, behind-the-scenes lives of celebrities with real-time subtitles. In addition, Naver provides the Naver Media Player, which streams live sports broadcasts, TV Cast videos and a variety of special live music and news events.
whiteCryption’s line of Cryptanium security products protects apps, stops reverse engineering, and keeps cryptographic keys and data private. The software-based, low-cost solution provides robust obfuscation, software self-defense and tamper resistance capabilities. Unlike hardware-based anti-tamper technologies, whiteCryption’s software solution is easily upgradable and goes beyond the limitations and risks of conventional application security.
“The global live streaming service lets Naver viewers watch favorite celebrities and live content that they can’t view on other platforms,” said Hans Kang, whiteCryption general manager, Korea. “The whiteCryption Cryptanium suite of products ensures that Naver customers can access the video content securely and prevents hackers from reverse engineering and tampering with the service.”
“Since its formal launch in September 2015, V Live has achieved over 19 million downloads worldwide and is experiencing strong solid growth,” said Joon-kee Chang, director of Video Cell, Naver. “With the implementation of whiteCryption, worldwide users are now able to enjoy video content in a more secure environment thanks to its secure features.”
