About Gord Larose



I'm a high-technology veteran specializing in Digital Rights Management and related technologies, who understands the subtle interplay between good technology and good business.

I work for Irdeto, a multinational media security company which took over my previous employer, Cloakware, in 2007. Cloakware specialized in security technology applicable to DRM and many other scenarios requiring application-level security. This was a good fit for Irdeto, which came from a world of set-top boxes and hardware-based security and saw the synergy with Cloakware's software and DRM expertise.

Independent consulting work is no longer being sought. However, I remain an informed, balanced voice in the DRM community, especially by maintaining the DRM Dictionary.
