Announcing Webinar: Double Down on Gaming Security

Register for our webinar on the threat of DDoS attacks on online gaming sites, Double Down on Cyber Security on July 30, 2015.

The online gaming and sports betting market has tripled in size over the last decade, and is now a $45 billion industry per the GBGC Interactive Gambling Report*. As the industry grows at an impressive rate the threat of crippling cyber attacks looms even larger as shown by the recent attacks on several New Jersey-based online gambling websites. The reality is, existing security measures at gaming companies are often not enough to prevent cheap and agile DDoS attacks by cybercriminals.

DDoS attacks overwhelm a website or application with illegitimate traffic and make it unavailable to users. Assaults on gaming networks are particularly problematic since attackers don’t even need to bring the site down. So much of online gambling, sports betting in particular, depends on real-time availability so perpetrators need only to slow the site down to render it unusable. This leads to the loss of user base and hurts the bottom line.

Join the webinar on July 30, 2015, to learn more about these attacks and what you can do to protect your infrastructure.

You’ll learn about:

  • The landscape of DDoS threats
  • Who is behind the DDoS attacks
  • What makes online gaming servers vulnerable
  • Strategies to combat DDoS attacks
