Konami Digital Entertainment Co. has chosen VASCO Data Security International’s DIGIPASS technology to increase security for its online gaming and shopping services.
Cybercriminals have begun hacking into e-commerce and online gaming platforms to intercept payment transactions or steal gaming credits and goods for resale.
To combat this, Konami added VASCO’s VACMAN Controller authentication back-end software as well as the DIGIPASS technology. This combination gives customers secure login options for their accounts, including the DIGIPASS GO 6 one-button authenticator.
The new services intend to protect Konami’s customers from keyloggers and identity thieves, while preserving the quality of the online gaming experience.
