The Samsung Galaxy S3 was launched with great fanfare and tech-reviewers were quick to blog about the innards of the phone. The Korean electronics giant turned to Israel’s Discretix for its hardware-assisted DRM to secure HD video services on the new smartphone.

Discretix is a leading global provider of field proven content protection solutions. It develops DRM flash memory processors that are embedded in the memory and enable the devices to securely access HD VoD and live TV services.

“Discretix is pleased to have been selected to provide content protection solutions for Samsung GALAXY S III”, said Coby Sella, CEO of Discretix. “Built on top of the newest processors and most advanced security technologies, our products are at the technology forefront of the world’s leading Android devices.”

Discretix is headquartered near Netanya and has offices in North America, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
