DIGIPASS Authentication Solutions Protect Online Gaming Customers by Preventing Fraud and Account Takeover

SAN FRANCISCO, July 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- VASCO Data Security International, Inc. (NASDAQ: VDSI), a global leader in authentication, digital signatures, and identity management, announced today that it will be showcasing its newest authentication solutions for iGaming at the 14th annual Global iGaming Summit & Expo (GiGse) from July 14 to 16, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco.

Eilers Research, a research firm focused on the global gaming industry, says the social-casino game market hit $2 billion in 2013. SuperData Research estimates it will be $4.4 billion by 2015. iGaming is relatively young in the U.S., but a growing number of Americans are gambling online and several states are considering legalizing online gambling.

Online gambling presents a unique set of security challenges for business operators.  The involvement of significant funds and financial transactions makes it an attractive target for criminal hackers. In addition, players must be properly identified to satisfy location requirements (iGaming operators are typically required to ensure that players are within the boundaries of their state ) and anti-money laundering regulations.

Today, VASCO provides on premise and cloud-based security solutions to many leading online gaming and legalized gambling service providers and secures over 8 million users worldwide. VASCO is also the leading provider of authentication and digital signature solutions to financial institutions; more than half of the top 100 banks in the world use VASCO solutions to enhance their security.

"Just as in banking, static passwords simply do not provide adequate protection," said Martin Ahlers, Vice President of the MYDIGIPASS Business Unit at VASCO. "One-time passwords are far more secure as they cannot be reused and are only valid for a limited period of time, rendering them useless for fraud and money laundering. "
