Multifactor authentication security for complex gaming IT environments and secure patron access
Offering easy, yet highly secure access for patrons to VIP and player’s club accounts without the need to remember cumbersome PINs or passwords, or carry easy to lose cards, is highly desirable. Eliminate unauthorized use of perks and promotions due to compromised credentials.
Shared credentials or open terminals lead to lack of accountability that can result in unauthorized access. Hackers too easily phish and establish fraudulent administrative accounts. Secure authentication at vault and cage cashier computers and retail POS terminals should be fast and human-proof.
Casino IT systems are complex with on- and off-premise data centers and web, cloud and mobile applications. Access to highly sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII) such as patron names, addresses, driver’s license and Social Security numbers, and credit card bank account information, must be protected.
Provide risk-based factors
Utilizing the optimal authentication factor to meet a given application’s risk profile enables maximum security with minimal friction. A pit manager using face recognition can electronically authorize receipts, credit slips and cash-out transactions with ease and irrefutability. Dealers and cashiers can clock-in and -out with the touch of a finger. No more unsecure passwords, shared credentials or lost productivity.
All casino systems and applications – backend, mobile, kiosk terminals, POS systems - are covered by a single authentication solution. All transactions and logons are recorded in a single location for auditing or post-event forensics.
Optimize patron experience
By reducing patron reliance on passwords, PINs and casino cards (or some combination thereof), patrons are able to access and utilize their benefits faster and more securely. Patrons have peace of mind that their hard-earned benefits remain safe and under their control.
Streamline casino operations
New casino employees are onboarded with ease and given quick, yet secure, access to the systems and applications they need to perform their jobs. Terminated employees have all access taken away instantly when departing.
