Continent 8 Technologies has launched a private internet named the Gaming Exchange.
The Continent 8 Gaming Exchange is an exclusive community for iGaming businesses, allowing them to connect faster and more securely than over the standard internet, with no need for additional configuration. It means that Continent 8 customers can connect directly to other Continent 8 customers via a VPN across the company’s backbone network, rather than route over the public internet.
The Gaming Exchange offers the lowest latency and highest performance guaranteed, with both local and remote global reachability. It is a private and reliable internet solution with public IPv4 addressing and an uptime rate in excess of 99.9%.
It delivers high levels of security, and unlike the standard internet it is not attackable externally and is fully protected by Continent 8. This mitigates the risk of members falling victim to a DDoS attack, the volume of which has been at an all-time high in recent months.
In addition, 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.
Justin Cosnett, chief product officer at Continent 8, added: “We know that iGaming companies are constantly talking to each other over the internet. 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.”
