Globecast has appointed Viaccess-Orca’s former security director, Renaud Presty, as its new director of security.
Presty joins Globecast with immediate effect and will be tasked with handling all cybersecurity and content protection-related issues – including IT security, certification, rules of use, and securing Globecast’s installations and services.
“Never has cybersecurity and related content protection been such a priority, particularly with the ongoing move to virtualised technologies and increased use of the cloud,” said Globecast CEO, Philippe Bernard.
“Renaud joins Globecast at a crucial time in our industry. We take all security issues very seriously at Globecast, and we know Renaud’s skills and expertise will further enhance our capabilities.”
Presty added: “It’s great to be joining Globecast at this important time. With the increase in new forms of video piracy and content redistribution threats, associated with the ongoing transformation of the industry, it’s vital that information and infrastructure security programs are carefully evaluated and reinforced.”
Presty brings 25 years’ of security industry experience to the role. He joins Globecast from Orange Group subsidiary Viaccess Orca, before which he was security consulting director at Trusted Labs.
