Mountain View, USA, December 11, 2007: Quova, Inc., provider of Internet geolocation services, and RSA, the Security Division of EMC, announced an extension to their technical partnership to help “risk assess” web visitors as part of the fight against online fraud.
Quova’s new Internet Location Intelligence platform is designed to enable online businesses to more comprehensively determine the geographic location of their Web visitors and supports real time deployment of supplemental location techniques extending beyond Internet Protocol (IP) geolocation. The Proxy Locator can validate if a Web visitor is using a proxy server and, in real time, identify the geographic location of the originating Internet connection. The Wireless Locator is a permission-based application that can identify the location, down to a city street level, of Web visitors accessing the Internet from Wi-Fi enabled cell phones and laptops.
“We are delighted to extend our longstanding relationship with RSA,” said Bill Varga, Vice President of Business Development, Quova. “We believe this partnership brings together complementary expertise to deliver enhanced security solutions to our customers.”
“The integration of Quova’s geolocation services into our products extends our ongoing mission to assess risk as intelligently, comprehensively and seamlessly as possible. Quova’s gelocation together with RSA’s strong device identification, eFraudNetwork and risk analytics will continue to help our customers to provide their end users with a comprehensive security while maintaining the best possible online experience,” said Marc Gaffan, Director of Product Marketing, Identity and Access Assurance Group at RSA.
