Gaming HQ has enhanced security for customers who visit their retail centers to partake in LAN gaming sessions thanks to the inclusion of fingerprint biometrics to further secure their networks.
IdentiPHI, Inc., a provider of enterprise security solutions and services was chosen for their SAFsolution to provide the biometric-based user authentication and parental controls requested by LAN Gaming HQ.
Using IdentiPHI SAFsolution Enterprise Edition, multiplayer online gaming sessions within the retail setting are far more secured to help keep younger gamers from sexual predators thanks to an in-store security system that cross references fingerprints with databases of sexual offenders.
"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 in a statement to the press.
"We believe our innovative solution will give LAN Gaming HQ a competitive advantage and help take them to the next level."
LAN Gaming HQ creates shared local area networks in a retail setting so dozens of people to simultaneously participate in a LAN gaming session.
"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."
