Digital Envoy Selected by AT&T to Join the AT&T
Ecosystem for ASPs Program
Atlanta - February 19, 2002 - Digital Envoy, the leading
provider of geographically intelligent Internet solutions, today
announced it has been selected to join the award-winning AT&T Ecosystem for ASPs program, which combines AT&T's
leading-edge managed Web hosting services and network services
platform with a comprehensive co-marketing and distribution program.
Digital Envoy's non-invasive, patent-pending NetAcuityTM technology can determine the geographic location and modem connection speed of Internet users down to a city level worldwide. This offers customers the ability to tailor and target Web content, control content distribution, and more effectively route network traffic. The result is that Web site visitors have an enhanced online experience as businesses can quickly serve relevant language- and currency-specific content.
"Understanding the geographic location of an online user is critical for Web-based businesses to maximize sales opportunities," said Rob Friedman, executive vice president of corporate development, Digital Envoy. "Our membership in AT&T's Ecosystem program provides us with a secure and reliable environment to deliver geo-intelligent solutions that help optimize the delivery and management of Web content, as well as the ability to leverage marketing and sales assistance provided by AT&T under the program."
The ability to geographically identify an Internet user's location also allows customers to grant or restrict access to protected or legally regulated content; to detect for fraud by comparing a user's "virtual" location to the location manually given at registration; and to improve marketing initiatives by analyzing Web traffic for customized content delivery.
Customers using Digital Envoy's technology include AOL Time Warner, Cable and Wireless, Siemens, Google, Abbott Labs, Network Associates, Speedera, Advertising.com, Avenue A and many of the largest Web sites and networks on the Internet.
