Continent 8 Technologies has launched its own private internet entitled Gaming Exchange aimed exclusively at igaming businesses.
The reason for the community deut, according to Continent 8, is to allow igaming companies to “connect faster and more securely” compared to the standard internet, with no need for additional configuration.
This will enable Continent 8 customers to connect directly to other customers, under the same brand, via a VPN across the company’s backbone network, rather than the public internet route.
“We know that igaming companies are constantly talking to each other over the internet,” stated Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer at Continent 8. “The Gaming Exchange is a game-changer for the industry, an exclusive community for organisations to connect on a private, highly secure and ultra-fast network.
“As one of the most attacked industries, the level of security that we can provide via the Gaming Exchange offers a highly valuable solution for our customers. It is products such as the Gaming Exchange that help to further establish Continent 8 as the leading managed hosting, connectivity, cloud and security solutions provider to the global gambling industry.”
Continent 8 stated that the Gaming Exchange offers the “lowest latency and highest performance guaranteed” with both local and remote global reachability. Moreover, the company noted that it has a public IPv4 addressing and an uptime rate in excess of 99.9 per cent.
Additionally, whilst lauding its “unrivalled levels of security” when compared to the standard internet, the firm believe that it will not be attackable externally and is “fully protected” by Continent 8.
Moreover, customers connected to the Gaming Exchange will gain access to a Premium Portal, an analytical dashboard that allows them to view and monitor traffic flows within and outside of Continent 8 to other gaming partners.
