Uniloc Announces New Device ID Platform

EdgeID Platform prevents fraud by correlating users with devices
IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 20, 2009 - Uniloc USA, Inc., the leader in identifying network devices, today announced the launch of its EdgeID Platform. Unilocs innovative, patented device recognition technology creates a fingerprint, or edge ID, based on the naturally occurring, inherent physical characteristics of a computing device, including PCs, laptops, smartphones, etc. The Uniloc EdgeID Platform utilizes this edge ID information as a physical identifier to authenticate and authorize access for private networks, cloud-based services and software offerings, including SaaS.

With online fraud, Web-based threats and attacks on private networks increasing as more valuable services transition to the Web, maintaining integrity at the networks edge has become a top priority, said Brad Davis, CEO at Uniloc. Unilocs EdgeID Platform provides a highly customizable and tolerant authentication technology for access control in almost any network environment, from software delivery to Web-based services and critical infrastructure networks.

The Uniloc EdgeID Platform prevents fraud by correlating users with devices. While an individual can establish an unlimited number of online identities, the person will only have a limited number of computing devices accessible. Unilocs EdgeID Platform can deny, or blacklist devices known to repeatedly conduct fraudulent activity.

The Uniloc EdgeID Platform provides a reliable and connected environment with proven applications that include: Critical Infrastructure and private network security Secure software licensing, game delivery and SaaS Online fraud prevention and identity protection

The EdgeID Software Development Kit (SDK) also provides tools, libraries and code to enable the rapid customization and integration of the technology with existing solutions.

The Uniloc EdgeID Platform is available immediately. For more information, please visit www.uniloc.com.
