Minimize account sharing with Dynamic Real-Time Identification and Session Control (DRISC)

You can control the number of sessions a user account can have at a single time, without compromising a smooth user experience across devices.

Uncompromising user experience

DRISC follows the user. It ensures a seamless user experience across devices as your viewer switches access from one device to another, ending one session and starting the new one.

Counteract fraudulent behavior

Our active session control also allows you to block a fraudulent account and instantly end the playback stream in the client application.

Real-Time session control and Insights

Using our security dashboard, you can see the number of blocked viewers, blocked streams, and active sessions at that time.
