e-Gaming - Strong Authentication

Overview:

The massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) industry is a lucrative one. With billions of dollars in revenue, it has not only proven itself a popular new entertainment medium; it has also proven an attractive target for online fraudsters. And it’s not surprising, as the rewards are significant. More valuable than their email passwords, social security numbers, or even credit card numbers, gamers’ profiles and accounts are being stolen and sold on the black market for big profits. Though very valuable, online gaming and gambling accounts are inadequately protected. Because they are generally protected by insecure static passwords, they are easy targets for online fraudsters.

VASCO’s two-factor authentication technology is a very simple and effective way of bridging the security gaps inherent with static passwords. With two-factor authentication, MMOG companies can quickly and inexpensively solve a significant number of their account security troubles, all without drastically altering the end-user experience.

Goal:

By protecting players’ accounts from Trojans, viruses and keyloggers, VASCO’s Multi-Authentication technology helps MMOG companies to:

  • Reestablish gamers’ trust
  • Banish keylogger concerns among players
  • Stabilize revenue by reducing helpdesk load
  • Reduce account turnover and the number of abandoned accounts

Threats:

One of the most significant external threats to the long-term sustainability of any MMOG or virtual world is account theft. Because account theft is not a function of in-game design, MMOG publishers have little control over it, and it is therefore considered a significant threat.
