BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synacor Inc. (Nasdaq:SYNC), the leading provider of next-gen startpages, award-winning TV Everywhere solutions and cloud-based Identity Management (IDM) services, across multiple devices for cable, satellite, telecom and consumer electronics companies, today announced the industry's first white-label auto authentication solution for TV Everywhere access while in the home as well as via Social Login. Synacor's auto authentication solution recognizes a user's broadband network-based pay-TV account for at-home mobile access or connects via a user's familiar social media login, wherever the location. Both are part of Synacor's Cloud ID offering, and expected availability is Q1 2014.
More is on the horizon for Cloud ID. Leading into NYC Television Week, Synacor continues its momentum with Cloud ID Social Login, having been the industry's first authentication solution allowing pay-TV subscribers easy access to services, apps and entertainment using their existing Facebook, Twitter and Google+ logins.
Since its debut, Cloud ID Social Login has been recognized by the technology and digital entertainment industry as a superior solution and tremendous step forward in the universal adoption of TV Everywhere. In addition to attention from technology influencers like Kara Swisher at AllThingsD, Cloud ID Social Login has garnered several noteworthy awards including the TV of Tomorrow Leadership Award for the Most Significant Technology, Platform or Product, the TMC Cable Spotlight Product of the Year and CableFAX Best of the Web Award as the best TV Everywhere technology. Earlier this year, Synacor was invited to showcase its Cloud ID Social Login and TV Everywhere products alongside other technology elite at Google's Developer Sandbox at Google I/O 13.
