aming Laboratories Internacional President and co-founder James R. Maida said: “This is an era of ever-advancing technologies, both in the game and across the entire operation. These new services will help operators ensure that their systems, such as server-based gaming, networks and wireless communications, are as safe and secure as possible.”
Vice President of Foundstone Professional Service Bill Hau said: “The implementation of information security for casino operators presents unique and distinct challenges for both the operators themselves and the customers who may use the infrastructure to access services provided. We are excited and proud to be part of this GLI partnership, and I'm confident Foundstone will provide the expertise and leadership necessary to help bolster casino operator security.”
Today's casino floor is networked to central servers, and the network can have hundreds, even thousands, of access points, putting the network and stored data at risk. The new GLI/Foundstone services will conduct in-depth technical testing of networks, applications, and various security related infrastructure components such as firewalls, VPNs and wireless networks. Services also include auditing network security systems, detection of intrusions, identification of weaknesses and outlining recommendations to repair any discovered weaknesses.
