LR Data Looks to Nominum to Deliver Managed Security Services for its Online Gaming Hub


Nominum™, the DNS-based security and services innovation leader, announced today that LR Data Center and Solutions, Inc. (LR Data), a subsidiary of Leisure & Resorts World Corporation (LRWC), Asia's first gaming jurisdiction, will secure the internet experience for millions of online gamers around the world with Nominum N2™ ThreatAvert.

LR Data, a telecom- and jurisdiction-neutral technology services provider that hosts several internet gaming sites throughout Asia, is deploying Nominum’s DNS-based network protection solution to safeguard online gaming businesses and their users from emerging cyberthreats such as DDoS and PRSD (Pseudo-Random Sub Domain) attacks. LR Data has a significant client base of Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA) gaming operators and a growing base of Philippine Amusement & Gaming Corporation Offshore Gaming Operators (POGO), as well as North Cagayan and Aurora Pacific Economic Zone and Freeport Authority (APECO) operators. LR Data also has multiple points of presence in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Makati and Cagayan.

Given the high growth in cybercrime taking place around the globe—with many attacks specifically targeting online gaming sites—LR Data is delivering a more robust managed security service, protecting the gaming hub provider’s business and customers from DNS poisoning that can lead to degradation of performance, internet blacklisting and loss of revenues. Additionally, with N2 ThreatAvert, LR Data is providing a safe, secure environment for gaming communities, protecting players’ devices from botnets and infection, safeguarding personal data and ensuring they are connected to legitimate gaming sites.

“Nominum is the leader in DNS-based security, and with the strength of their data science team, their products deliver depth and breadth of protection not found in other solutions,” said Ed Lopez, Chief Technology Officer of LR Data. “Offering a solid network-based security service for LR Data helps build trust in our brand, and gives our customers assurance that their gaming network hosts safe, viable sites that can be trusted to offer a secure and reliable experience.”

“As a leader in the online gaming industry, protecting our customers and their users, ensuring optimal performance of our network and keeping integrity a key part of each site’s brand reputation are our top priorities,” said John Cornejo, Chief Development Officer for LR Data. “The Nominum solution and their DNS and cybersecurity expertise, coupled with LR Data’s IT management services, help us demonstrate a solid commitment to our clients and set ourselves apart from other online gaming providers.”

N2 ThreatAvert: Network Protection Preserves and Secures the Consumer Digital Lifestyle

Nominum N2 ThreatAvert provides real-time protection against threats originating from within service provider and managed services networks that degrade a user’s online experience. The DNS-based solution ensures that users are able to reach valid gaming sites and play as normal, and that gaming companies are able to continue to monetize their offerings. N2 ThreatAvert prevents portal and server IP subnets from being blacklisted, as can occur during DDoS and PRSD attacks or device infections which can lead to losses in revenue. By securing and improving performance of gaming sites, N2 ThreatAvert helps companies like LR Data deliver a higher quality of service, helping them grow the bottom line for themselves and their customers.

Through up-to-the-minute data that is validated by Nominum Data Science, N2 ThreatAvert delivers unmatched accuracy and removes the potential for false positives that block legitimate subscriber traffic. Nominum data scientists process 100 billion DNS transactions every day to discover and validate emerging cyberthreats. N2 ThreatAvert is highly adaptive, with a proven track record in deterring fast-changing exploits. It is completely automated, meaning the operations team can “set it and forget it,” with assurance that the network’s DNS servers are fully protected.

“Keeping consumers safe online and safeguarding business operations is part of our mission of delivering secure, high-performance online experiences,” said Jari Heinonen, Vice President Asia Pacific for Nominum. “LR Data understands the risks involved with leaving their networks vulnerable to the dark web. Their deployment of N2 ThreatAvert will help establish solid business performance for their gaming site customers and bring peace of mind to the international gaming community.”
