Solus - No Download
GeoGuard’s Solus offers a no-download geolocation solution that works directly within the broadcaster’s website for all devices and user interfaces. For frictionless spoof-proof geolocation within the browser, this HTML5-based geolocation experience can be customized according to the business and compliance needs of the broadcaster, with adaptable end-user prompts and secure collection of location data.
Solus is designed to counter the emerging geo-piracy threats that previous generations of geo-fraud tools are no longer able to protect against within browser-based applications. Our technology is used as a tool for broadcasters to meet and exceed their content licensing requirements when it comes to securely geo-fencing geographic borders, and is used to maintain compliance with territorial content restrictions by providing a more precise, reliable solution than any other geolocation provider.
