Staff Writer Industry News, Playtech 3,298

The world’s leading omnichannel gambling company Playtech has forged a strategic partnership with Iovation, to offer FraudForce technology to its operators.

Player Protection the Key

The agreement is part of the company’s policy to expand its extensive operator toolset via prudently selected strategic partnerships combined with substantial internal research and development.

This is just the latest in a series of agreements selected to deliver a 360-degree customer toolset capable to manage the most rigorous of regulatory environments. Recently Playtech partnered with fraud prevention and risk management software specialists Featurespace, real-time engagement and retention platform Captain Up and gamification experts Thunderbite.

FraudForce is being made available through the Playtech Open Platform which enables the integration of third-party software with their IMS player management platform.

Shimon Akad, Chief Operating Officer of Playtech, said, “Everyone at Playtech is delighted to be working with iovation to bring FraudForce to our licensees. IMS is already the most comprehensive player management platform in the industry, but with the Playtech Open Platform, we can enhance its capabilities even further.”

About Iovation’s Unique System

This unique iovation’s solution uses Privacy by Design methodology to ensure ongoing compliance with global privacy laws, including the EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation.

The device enables operators to avoid the use of directly identifying personal data and therefore protect businesses and valuable customers from potential cybercrime and fraud. FraudForce can recognize the device, determine if it’s evading detection, check for any previous fraud associations and run any specified transaction risk checks in approximately 100 milliseconds.

“We are passionate about equipping our operators with world-class fraud prevention tools, and our partnership with iovation is a key part of our strategy to deliver this. FraudForce is a powerful weapon in the war on cybercrime in online gambling, with its integration into IMS providing a seamless boost to the arsenal of our licensees”, Akad continued.

FraudForce focuses on the device, not the user and detects fraudulent activity and identify hidden links between devices and suspicious accounts. Operators can now make real-time automated decisions on any device they feel may pose a risk.

“We’re excited that Playtech is joining forces with iovation to make the Internet a safer and less complicated place for its licensees,” added Ed Wu, VP of global partnerships at iovation.

“Our partnership strengthens the ability to spot risks and remediate fraud threats. It’s a fantastic feeling to be able to work together to give users an extra level of confidence.”
