NAGRA, a Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) company and the world’s leading independent provider of content protection and multiscreen television solutions, today announced that Vodafone, one of the world's largest telecommunications companies, has deployed its cloud-hosted and cloud-operated Security Services Platform, NAGRA cloud.SSP to help protect Vodafone TV (VTV) services across a large number of operating companies, including Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy and Romania. The NAGRA Connect client and player complement the end-to-end security solution to enable comprehensive security for VTV across set-top boxes, web browsers, open devices and connected TVs.

This announcement marks the first major rollout of NAGRA cloud.SSP at scale, supporting a major service provider operating in different countries.
