SAN MATEO, Calif., Aug. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- White Sky, Inc. announced today the launch of its Extensible Services Platform™ (ESP) – an all-in-one security dashboard. ESP™ is a powerful solution that lets partners offer multiple, high value consumer services through a single application platform allowing them to custom-build unique, compelling and integrated offers for their customers. White Sky's platform allows its partners to dramatically increase their customer interaction, drive loyalty and generate incremental revenue, while offering superior security and privacy services for their online experience.  Through its always-on, secure desktop presence, ESP™ drives interaction with valuable partner services allowing partners to develop personalized communication with their customers.

Comcast is the first Internet Service Provider to utilize the ESP™ solution to provide a simple and convenient way to access the company's online security resources through the Constant Guard™ Protection Suite.  The Constant Guard Protection Suite is a desktop application that helps Comcast's Internet customers secure their personal and financial information from cyber criminals.

White Sky is the first company to offer a simple to use, easy to deploy yet comprehensive solution that integrates a full range of services through a single application that provides unmatched value to consumers. The ESP solution has been designed for ISPs, financial institutions, cable companies and others with large consumer bases who want to deliver high value services to their customers in a compelling, customizable application suite."

Fully Customizable, Highly Interactive

White Sky will work with its partners to launch a custom solution that integrates multiple services delivered through a single application and user interface.
