Safeguarding iGaming: SOFTSWISS and Cloudflare Collaborate on Cybersecurity Case Study


In a strategic partnership, SOFTSWISS, a reputable iGaming software provider, teams up with Cloudflare, Inc., a leading connectivity cloud company, to unveil insights into their joint efforts in combating cyber threats. The collaborative case study aims to fortify the cybersecurity defences within the iGaming sector.

The iGaming industry faces a myriad of cybersecurity challenges, with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and malicious bot activities ranking among the most prevalent threats. Particularly vulnerable are financial data and personally identifiable information (PII) of users.

To address these challenges, SOFTSWISS adopts a multifaceted approach, including proactive adaptation to evolving threats, fostering internal vigilance, prioritizing response and continuity plans, investing in advanced skills, and promoting transparent communication following security incidents.

As part of its expansion strategy, SOFTSWISS has transitioned a segment of its security infrastructure to Cloudflare’s comprehensive tool suite. Leveraging Cloudflare’s global network, SOFTSWISS has observed up to a 20% enhancement in traffic performance from its EU-based data centre to remote regions like Southeast Asia and South America. Years of collaboration in cloud technology have enabled SOFTSWISS to advance its business, as outlined in the jointly produced case study detailing its experience in mitigating shared threats.

Maintaining an unwavering commitment to product quality and security, SOFTSWISS upholds the highest standards. The company’s ISO-27001 certification, coupled with GLI-19 and GLI-33 certifications for its Casino Platform and Sportsbook received last year, underscored its dedication to excellence in the iGaming realm.

“Last year, cyber security returned with renewed vigour into the iGaming industry, which faced a few large-scale attacks. Having such a reliable partner as Cloudflare helps us ensure the safety of our products and fight threats more effectively. Cloudflare acts as the sole entry point to our network infrastructure, protecting us from various attacks, especially at the network and transport layers. Cloudflare’s protection allows us to concentrate our security efforts on fewer attack vectors, freeing up resources to improve our products for clients,” commented Sergey Kastukevich, Deputy CTO at SOFTSWISS.

“Businesses like SOFTSWISS operating in the iGaming, sports betting, and online gambling industry need to implement a solid and holistic connected performance and cybersecurity solution. Just in the fourth quarter of 2023, Cloudflare blocked an average of 182 billion cyber threats each day globally,” added Andy Lockhart, VP EMEA at Cloudflare.
