Cybersecurity firm DruvStar is expanding its US reach, now offering services in Ohio, Maryland, and Louisiana. Regulators in the respective markets have all approved Druvstar as a vendor.
Louisiana launched online sports betting a little over a year ago, while Maryland just launched its online sportsbooks at the start of December. Ohio is in preparations for a Jan. 1 online sportsbook launch.
DruvStar can now offer its cybersecurity products like DruvStar Threat Insights and DruvStar DataVision, and can help operators test their cybersecurity measures.
The issue of cybersecurity has been top of mind for the US sports betting industry after a recent spate of fraud. Both Pennsylvania and New Jersey have made multi-factor authentication mandatory for online operators in their jurisdictions.
Pennsylvania and New Jersey are two of the states where DruvStar is also licensed, along with New York, Arizona, Washington, and Ontario.
“Regulatory bodies provide a central role in ensuring that players enjoy a responsible, fair, and secure wagering experience,” Manjit Gombra Singh, DruvStar’s CEO and founder, said in a release. “Thanks to these approvals, DruvStar is now able to provide an additional level of protection for the players and operators, by securing the digital environments for gaming and sports betting.”
DruvStar works with online operators like PointsBet as well as brick-and-mortar casinos like ilani and Seven Feathers.
