BlueCava and Crisp Thinking Protect Online Games from Gold Farmers, Bullies and Cheats
IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- BlueCava (www.bluecava.com), the credit bureau for devices, and Crisp Thinking (www.crispthinking.com), the global leader in user management and analytics technology for social media, today announced a strategic partnership to integrate the BlueCava Device Identification Platform into Crisp's award-winning User Management Platform - NetModerator™ for games, virtual worlds and social networks.
BlueCava's Device Identification Platform uniquely identifies each computer or mobile device being used in massively multiplayer online games (MMOGs) and online world platforms, together with Crisp technology allowing customers to block fraudsters, child predators, community code violators and botnet attackers.
"Users who cheat, grief, spam, bully or engage in dangerous, fraudulent or anti-social behavior in online communities monitored by Crisp's NetModerator™ technology, will find not only their accounts banned, but will also find that their devices may be flagged, or banned outright, from the community," said David Norris, CEO of BlueCava.
NetModerator™ is a unique, intuitive system that allows developers, publishers and their moderating staff to ensure online safety through a single system that both blocks in real-time and offers ongoing in-depth analysis of online communications.
BlueCava is the credit bureau for devices, providing information about good, bad, and historical activities conducted from desktop and mobile devices. Our reputation data fights fraud and improves online communications. Using a low priced, disruptive business model, BlueCava allows all customers the chance to identify any online device, retrieve valuable history about it and use our technology for every transaction.
Our innovative Device Reputation Exchange lets businesses share information about fraudulent, good, and useful transactions from recognized computers, enabling decisions regarding doing business, or not, with any specific computer.
