Asset protection and content security firm Irdeto has announced the appointment of Doug Lowther as CEO effective as of 1 April.

The news follows previous CEO Graham Kill's resignation to pursue new opportunities.

Lowther will be joining Irdeto from International Datacasting Corporation (IDC), where he is currently the CEO. Previously, Lowther was EVP of Irdeto's digital TV business and was with the company for more than nine years before leaving to join IDC.

The new executive will aim to strengthen Irdeto's position in providing solutions for pay-TV operators, over-the-top (OTT) service providers and content owners.
