Skyhook Wireless Enters into Partnership with CAMS LLC to Provide Wi-Fi Location Services in the State of New Jersey
Jan 22 14
Skyhook Wireless announced a partnership with CAMS LLC to provide Wi-Fi location services in the state of New Jersey. CAMS will use Skyhook's Certified Location combined with its Certified Location for Web (formerly known as Loki) product as part of the CAMS suite of geolocation and related services to ensure that people who are gaming online are actually inside New Jersey state lines. Skyhook Certified Location uses data from multiple sources to produce a corroborated, tamper-resistant location result that ensures a user's location even if they are trying to thwart geolocation measures. By combining data from GPS, cell radio, Wi-Fi access points, and IP addresses, Skyhook Certified Location is able to locate users with maximum confidence and detect when location sources are being faked. Not only is Skyhook Precision Location SDK the precise way to determine location, the Certified Location feature identifies fake GPS, recognizes proxy-based IP addresses designed to mask IP location. In addition, Skyhook Precision Location SDK detects if the device is a remote controlled computer sitting outside of the state of New Jersey and uses a hardened version of the W3C Geolocation function to increase the security of the location information. Using proprietary and applications, CAMS provides merchants in the gaming industry with the tools they need to reduce risk, comply with regulation and increase profitability. Merchants leverage CAMS expertise in payment connections, Know Your Customer services, geo-location and fraud management - all through a single agreement integration, thereby saving time, money and valuable resources.
