IdentiPHI SAFsolution First to Deliver Tighter Security for Children in Online Gaming Sessions within the Retail Setting
AUSTIN, Texas — IdentiPHI, Inc., an innovative leader in enterprise security solutions and services, today announced that Washington-based LAN Gaming HQ has selected IdentiPHI SAFsolution Enterprise Edition for use in the industry’s first biometric-based user authentication program for multiplayer online gaming scenarios within the retail setting. Under the agreement, LAN Gaming HQ will incorporate IdentiPHI’s technology into a comprehensive in-store security system specifically designed to protect its customers through the use of a unique biometric identifier: their fingerprint. LAN Gaming HQ will use the biometric data to cross-reference users with a sexual offender database, further safeguarding young game players.
“Thanks to IdentiPHI, we have a groundbreaking technology being implemented at our LAN gaming store,” explained Travis Dorsey, LAN Gaming HQ president. “The use of SAFsolution makes it possible for us to provide new levels of safety for gaming customers visiting our stores. The ease of use, quick integration and enterprise capabilities of SAFsolution allow us to meet our own network security needs and protect our customers at the same time.”
LAN Gaming HQ creates shared local area networks in a retail setting that enable dozens of people to simultaneously participate in a LAN gaming session. This new scenario for in-person gaming presents unique security challenges, particularly for children. The incorporation of IdentiPHI SAFsolution into the company’s security system enables LAN Gaming HQ to offer parental controls for underage players and to cross-reference its users with the local and national authorities, adding yet another layer of protection for its customers.
“Our technology not only enables LAN Gaming HQ to incorporate state-of-the-art security measures, such as a strong parental control platform – it also improves business processes and accountability by ensuring gamers are not stealing time from other customer accounts,” noted Peter Gilbert, IdentiPHI CEO. “We believe our innovative solution will give LAN Gaming HQ a competitive advantage and help take them to the next level.”
IdentiPHI SAFsolution is an industry-leading biometric solution for enterprise-level logical access and identity management. Integrated tightly with Microsoft® Active Directory®, SAFsolution enables the use of stronger authentication methods – fingerprints, smart cards, and other biometric form-factors – for access to networked corporate assets and resources. The software is standards-compliant and has an open systems architecture, which means customers are not tied to one application, technology or device. This approach allows customers to select the best fit of authentication technologies and applications to meet their unique security needs.
