Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has signed an agreement with Checkmarx for the provision of its static application security testing (SAST). The partnership allows GiG to scale and build on the maturity of its application security.

Checkmarx is a global leader in application security testing (AST). Its Checkmarx SAST (CxSAST) product is an enterprise-grade solution providing high-speed and accurate custom code security analysis, helping to eliminate cybersecurity risks. Enriched by Checkmarx’s powerful AST automation capabilities, CxSAST integrates directly into source code management systems and with leading CI/CD tools, enabling developers and AppSec teams to build and deploy more secure software faster than ever before.

The partnership with Checkmarx enables GiG to provide its developers with a powerful source code scanning tool, which will allow them to identify and rectify security vulnerabilities in custom code security at a single point. This will enhance the development process by accelerating remediation time, and by generating meaningful and actionable insight on code security. This allows  GiG to continue building on the maturity of its application security — improving its product offering to operators and strengthening its digital trust.

Chris Armes, Chief Information Officer at GiG, said: “Security is embedded in our culture, and ingrained in everything we do as a business. Partnering with Checkmarx forms part of the wider initiative of Integrating security throughout the development life cycle of our partner’s online casino or sports betting sites. The partnership will help to fuel our primary security objective of engineering secure products throughout GiG’s Ecosystem.”

Christopher Brennan, Regional Director, DACH and CEE, Checkmarx, said: “Modern software development is complex, requiring organisations and development teams to place both speed and security at the forefront of everything they do, and Checkmarx is committed to helping our customers achieve this balance. We’re pleased that an innovator like Gaming Innovation Group has chosen to utilise CxSAST and are confident that our partnership will allow them to instil cyber resilience into the software they develop, setting the standard for software security in the iGaming industry.”

“I am delighted to announce that Stats Perform is the first company to meet the data standards protocols IBIA published in October 2020. In passing the independent auditing process, Stats Perform has demonstrated secure and robust internal procedures for the collation of sporting event data for betting and may now utilise the Data Standards Kitemark,” Khalid Ali, CEO of IBIA, said.

“Stats Perform met every requirement set out in the data standards protocols. The company was well-prepared for the auditing process, and the evidence that was reviewed was representative of a company culture that is in line with the core principles of IBIA’s data integrity standards and committed to continually improving upon them,” Shaun McCallaghan, CEO of eCOGRA, said.

“This accreditation is thanks to tireless quality and integrity efforts from our sports data operations teams over the past 15 years and, whilst we’re grateful for the recognition, we know our efforts don’t stop here.

INTRALOT pick Algosport to provide innovative Bet Builder products
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Innovative UK based sportsbetting technology company Algosport are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement to provide Bet Builder products to industry giant INTRALOT.

Under the terms of the deal, current and future INTRALOT customers will benefit from market-leading Bet Builder products initially for pre-match football, but with the ability to expand to include In:Play betting options across a wide variety of sports, with Cashout supported as standard. Unlike some other providers, Algosports proprietary technology will be housed within INTRALOT’s current platform infrastructure, increasing accuracy and robustness, plus reducing the latency and other problems seen with some API or feed-based solutions.

Leigh Herdman, CEO at Algosport, said, “This is a really exciting deal for Algosport, and we are really pleased to be working with INTRALOT, who are one of the biggest names in betting and gaming”

Alongside traditional same game multiples for sports such as soccer and basketball, Algosport are also continually enhancing the service and recently added innovative products for handball and snooker betting markets. In addition,
Algosport recently became one of the first providers to offer Bet Builder products for eSports titles such as FIFA 2020. These innovations have proved incredibly popular with operators, as eSports betting replaced some of the revenue lost due to Covid-related reductions in the sporting calendar.

Leigh Herdman, CEO at Algosport, concluded: ‘The signing of this deal, alongside the recently announced supplier agreement with EveryMatrix, makes for a really exciting time at Algosport and we look forward to providing INTRALOT clients around the world with our innovative products. 2020 has obviously been a particularly challenging year for the gambling industry, however we have big plans for Algosport in 2021 that will see the launch of exciting new products and services for our existing customers, as well as bringing aboard numerous new clients”
