November 13, 2018

BUFFALO, N.Y. & ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 13, 2018--Synacor (NASDAQ: SYNC) today announced its advanced Cloud ID identity management and authentication platform has been selected by ETI Software Solutions as its reference platform to support streaming media deployments for all its telecom, cable and broadband operators. The Georgia-based software developer and systems integrator develops service assurance, provisioning and monetization solutions for operators across the globe, including Frontier Communications, Windstream and Cincinnati Bell.

Synacor Cloud ID is the industry’s only end-to-end identity platform that simplifies the subscriber login experience anywhere end-users access their video services. Whether viewing at home via a Wi-Fi network, connected TV or on a mobile device, users can get to the services and content they want faster and with less hassle.

“We help our customers reduce churn, create new paths to revenue and increase profit margins, making advanced Cloud ID a perfect fit for our Vision360 solution portfolio,” said Frank Gine, CEO, ETI Software. “TV Everywhere and direct-to-consumer streaming services are critical to maintain a competitive and profitable video offering. After evaluating multiple solutions, we chose Synacor as our identity management platform so we can guarantee seamless deployments and great subscriber experiences for our customers.”

ETI customers will be able to integrate advanced Cloud ID into over-the-top (OTT) services that let subscribers securely access account management systems with unified credentials. This functionality supports seamless viewing of authenticated video across multiple devices without having to repeatedly enter passwords. Synacor’s recently announced Forever Login will enable ETI customers to register trusted devices as part of an operator’s sign-in process, providing access to content from virtually anywhere.

“This is an important upgrade for ETI’s customers across the country,” said Dana Golden, VP, North America Sales & Marketing, Synacor. “OTT service adoption increases significantly when apps are easy to use, and ETI’s inclusion of Synacor in its Vision360 portfolio ensures that its customers can enjoy a streamlined viewing experience at home or on the go. Our work with ETI reflects the capabilities of our Identity Management Platform, as well as our growing success in working with video operators and content providers across new verticals.”
