2017 ICE tackles Security of Online and Mobile Gambling Sites

Internet security is a major issue in today’s digital world. According to Statista, 57% of all DDoS attacks in 2016 were targeted at online and mobile gambling sites. One Canada-based security firm is hoping to tackle that problem by providing free trials of its cloud-based security services to operators of internet gaming sites at 2017 ICE Totally Gaming.

DDoS Attack Security for Online and Mobile Gambling SitesDOSarrest Internet Security, headquartered in Vancouver, is a cloud-based internet security service that specializes in the prevention of DDoS attacks. With such duplicitous invasions by hackers becoming more and more prominent, the company announced it will make a appearance at 2017 ICE in London, England next month to raise awareness.

What is a DDoS Attack?

According to the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT), a DDoS attack – or Distributed Denial of Service – occurs when:

…an attacker attempts to prevent legitimate users from accessing information or services. By targeting your computer and its network connection, or the computers and network of the sites you are trying to use, an attacker may be able to prevent you from accessing email, websites, online accounts (banking, etc.), or other services that rely on the affected computer.”

Hackers use DDoS attacks to “flood” a network with so much information that nothing else – such as user logins – can get through. The network becomes so clogged with information requests, genuine users attempting to access the site become victims of DoS, or “denial of service”.

DOSarrest at 2017 ICE Totally Gaming

DOSarrest Internet Security invites all operators of online and mobile gaming sites to attend the 2017 ICE Totally Gaming conference in London, February 7-9. All operators who visit DOSarrest at booth S7-258 will be offered a 30-day free trail of their services.

“DOSarrest is the DDoS protection service of choice for the online gaming industry,” the company said. “With the sector proving to be a high profile target, we provide protection against all levels, including the most sophisticated, of DDoS attacks. With our DDoS protection service in place, we ensure the maximum uptime of your site.”

The company provides security to internet gaming sites by facilitating constant, real-time analysis of their networks. If an attack is detected – meaning a suspicious deal of information is being requested by a single user – DOSarrest is able to create custom rule-sets and apply them to the customer’s configuration in mere seconds, putting a halt to the attack often before ever becomes a noticeable problem.

New Certs for Online, Mobile Gaming Sites?

All avid members of internet gaming sites have become familiar with the throng of certification icons decorating the pages of today’s top online and mobile gambling sites. These certifications often tell us that an operator is reputably licenced, their software is RNG audited, that payments are secure, and that the site promotes responsible gambling.

With DDoS attacks becoming so prevalent, there’s a good chance we’ll soon find new certification logos announcing operators who’ve taken additional steps to secure their websites against DoS. And at this rate, DOSarrest is likely to lead the way in that inevitable movement towards the security of online and mobile gambling sites.
