Peter WilliamsManaging Director for Asia Pacific at Continent 8 Technologies, said: “Our decades of experience in protecting the world’s most attacked industry verticals, has given us vast knowledge and experience on how to best tackle the complex world of cyber security.

“By combining Continent 8’s market-leading security solutions with Beeinfotech’s local knowledge and support, we are able to protect Asian businesses of all sizes across all sectors.”

Reynaldo HuergasPresident and CEO of Beeinfotech PH, said: “Cyber security is a technology and support game. Through this agreement, Beeinfotech PH takes charge of the infrastructure, local manpower and coordination while Continent 8 brings in global managed security solutions and best practices.

Spotlight Sports Group (SSG), a technology, content and media company specialising in sports betting and fantasy sports, has announced its expanded B2B product portfolio. The addition of Publisher Solutions reflects Spotlight Sports Group’s ongoing work with media owners and aligns with its recently launched US proposition.

The new suite of products ranges from easy-to-integrate betting widgets to fully managed affiliate solutions that are designed to deliver actionable content to drive engagement and incremental revenues. The new solutions utilise state-of-the-art modular affiliate technology and leverage Spotlight Sports Group’s unique heritage in creating industry-leading sports betting media.

The catalyst for new product development follows research from Nielson that 55% of sports fans declare an interest in sports betting. With some traditional digital revenue streams approaching maturity, media companies can use Spotlight Sports Group’s Publisher Solutions as a viable route to accelerate revenue growth.

The suite of products contains a range of services from affiliate management to content creation, to performance tracking and analysis, all of which is managed by Spotlight Sports Group. This allows media companies to simply plug in the unique solutions to their platforms in up to 70 languages.

Discussing the new-look offering and website, Spotlight Sports Group’s Head of Digital B2B Will Fyler said: “We are ready to expand our global value proposition, especially given the recent acquisition of Alarm Sports Network. As well as a global website refresh to reflect our growing proposition, we are delighted to present a range of new products such as our Turnkey Affiliate Solutions, Smart Widgets and Free-To-Play games that cater for media companies globally.”

Fyler added, “Sports fans are interested in sports betting and, given the global growth of betting, there is a significant opportunity for media publishers to provide their sports audiences with great content and products while also increasing revenues.

We also know that providing betting-related content and products effectively is labour intensive and difficult. However, as a media company operating Racing Post among other brands, we are in a fortunate position that over the last 30 years we have built up the range of skills to achieve this and so we can now offer bespoke Publisher Solutions tailored to any media company’s audience.”

The ever-expanding Veloce Esports ecosystem yields substantial monthly viewership figures in excess of 230 million across its various channels.

Codemasters is a world-leading video games developer specialising in the racing genre. Its portfolio includes DiRT, Project CARS, GRID, and the official series of F1® video games. The VERSUS ULTRA Series will feature an innovative event format with different stages of competition taking place across several Codemasters titles.

Some of the best-known global esports teams will be taking part, comprising world famous streamers, pro gamers, and more, with squads competing for the inaugural VERSUS ULTRA Cup.

The first team to throw its hat into the ring is Quadrant, F1 star Lando Norris’ ever-popular esports squad.

With the likes of F1 YouTube star Aarav Amin (Aarava), leading virtual racer Steve Alvarez Brown (Super GT), Maria Bish (RiaBish) and Niran Yesufu (FNG) on the books, Quadrant will undoubtedly be running at the sharp end during the inaugural season.

More information on the event format, team announcements and the VERSUS ULTRA CUP will be revealed in due course, with racing set to get underway in 2022.

Rupert Svendsen-Cook, CEO, Veloce Esports, commented: 

“We’re delighted and feel very privileged to be partnering with such an established player in the industry as Codemasters, to launch what we know will be the best racing esports league in the world. We have worked closely with Codemasters for some time, as a large part of our media network features their titles, so it made a huge amount of sense to work together on this project.

“For us, the key focus is on entertainment for the gaming community and offering an original and engaging format that breaks the mould of the traditional racing esports leagues currently available. We’re incredibly excited to share further details regarding who and what is to come as we prepare to launch in 2022.”

Toby Evan-Jones, Head of Business Development, commented: 

“The VERSUS Ultra Series is an exciting new format which creates both action-packed content and the opportunity for our players to compete with their heroes from the real and virtual racing worlds. Codemasters’ expertise in delivering world-leading racing titles makes us the perfect partner for Veloce. We hope players of all levels will come together to create a fun competition which redefines the competitive gaming landscape with an innovative and inclusive format.”
