Toolbox and GeoGuard collaborate

October 18, 2017

GeoGuard, the geo-piracy prevention experts and Toolbox, the entertainment business facilitator, have announced that GeoGuard’s studio-approved and third party tested anti-fraud toolkit has been integrated with Cloud Pass, the Toolbox user authentication module.

“It’s very important to many of the MSOs with TV Everywhere services running on our solutions that geo-piracy can be prevented,” said Mauro Peluso, CTO & Partner, Toolbox. “By integrating GeoGuard’s industry leading geo-piracy prevention solutions with UNITY, we ensure that geographical content rights are supported. This makes it much easier for our content distribution customers to gain access to the highest-quality content.”

“The integration of our geo-piracy prevention toolkit with Cloud Pass means that Toolbox customers can say goodbye to geo-piracy,” said David Briggs, co-founder and chairman of GeoGuard. “As Cloud TV platforms move up the content quality league table then geographical rights become more and more important. This integration means that Toolbox customers remove geo-piracy concerns from their content negotiations.”
