Content security specialist Verimatrix has named Steve Oetegenn as president of the company.

The industry stalwart will play a more strategic role in the continued growth of the company as more large digital video operators are transitioning to an IP-centric network infrastructure.

"Steve's enhanced role at Verimatrix is the logical progression of our strategic business development initiatives, as he has played a central role in establishing our strong market presence and reputation for the last ten years," said Tom Munro, CEO of Verimatrix. "Our vision of revenue security within the software-empowered video operator model requires a more sophisticated approach to the market and our customers. Steve is the ideal person to lead this effort."

Oetegenn has specialised in digital security and anti-piracy for nearly 20 years working with government agencies, Fortune 500 companies and major Hollywood studios. Prior to joining Verimatrix, he was COO of MediaSec Technologies, a pioneer and leader in the field of digital watermarking, COO of Argus Systems Group, which provides Internet server security software, and CEO of DCE Communications, which provides business messaging systems.
