Online gaming industry is on the rise, but so are online threats and DDoS attacks that target and cripple gambling websites. Since every hour of unmitigated DDoS attacks provoke massive financial losses for operators, security is no more a choice. It is a mandatory protection measure.
To send a clear signal in the industry and secure clients and operators that use EveryMatrix software solutions, our company has integrated a year ago Prolexic’s DDoS protection service.
A DDoS attack is launched by online criminals to make unavailable an online location by flooding the targeted site with traffic from multiple sources and for online gambling websites, where in-play betting, live casino games and instant transactions need speed and security, these online attacks are disasters which lead to losing customers and trust from the community.
