Synacor’s Cloud ID identity and access management platform is being used by Altitude Sports, the regional sports network home of the NHL Stanley Cup Champion Colorado Avalanche, the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and the National Lacrosse League’s Colorado Mammoth, for simplified authentication and identity management across all devices.
Altitude is using Cloud ID for existing multi-channel video programming distributor (MVPD) deployments, providing subscribers with simple experiences when accessing a rich line-up of sports and sports-related content across multiple devices.

“By using Cloud ID to streamline access to games and other programming, Altitude Sports is creating a welcoming entry environment that makes fans feel like part of the Rocky Mountain sports community every time they sign in.”
