Gaming and Gambling Industry under Cyber-Attack (Whitepaper)
Online lotteries, betting and gaming services constitute a billion-euro market – which also makes them a popular target for cyber-attacks. Few industries rely as heavily on system availability as gaming and gambling, making effective protection from virulent web threats crucial. A modern system designed to repel DDoS attacks must be able to recognize and distinguish between these methods and implement countermeasures accordingly.
It’s essential that operators of gaming and gambling portals take measures to protect their systems from DDoS and other attacks, in order to ensure continuity and customer retention. As they are high-exposure targets for attackers and criminals, their business may be existentially threatened by the effects of an attack. Cloud solutions are especially advantageous: they are scalable, quickly deployed and can stop dangerous network traffic in its tracks before it reaches the infrastructure.
