"As a trusted partner to many of the world’s leading content owners and distributors, device manufacturers and software companies, one of Irdeto’s strengths as a security provider comes from our ability to fuse hardware with software security using our Cloakware technology. Physical security measures can only go so far: in order to properly utilize the Hardware Intrinsic Security approach, Irdeto’s Cloakware software security is needed to create applications that are uniquely anchored to hardware and effectively protect secret keys and other important assets. Protecting the linkage between hardware and software security is an important approach that we fully support and that is very much aligned with the goals of the HIS Initiative. "
