Tech Success Story VGW Partners With Featurespace

Share

Fast-growing technology company VGW has partnered with Featurespace to embed a world-leading fraud solution on its platform. Featurespace will deploy the ARIC™ Risk Hub as cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) to VGW, a creator of market-leading online social games which is headquartered in Australia.

The news comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Featurespace is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant – meaning that it meets five key trust service principles for securely managing customer data: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy.

“We understand the importance of providing games and content that capture our customers’ imagination while building a reputation of trust and security, which is why this partnership with Featurespace is so important,” said John Osborn, Chief Operating Officer from VGW.

“We have developed and patented a highly innovative entertainment platform that has security at its core and that’s where Featurespace’s ARIC™ Risk Hub comes in, enabling us to protect our players with the very best cloud-based fraud solution.”

The partnership gives VGW access to the latest Featurespace functionality and solutions through the cloud-deployed ARIC™ Risk Hub.

“VGW approached us as the experts in financial crime prevention, because they are fast building a reputation in the online social gaming world for setting new customer standards while maintaining a laser focus on trust and security, ” said James MacDonald Turner, VP Commercial APAC for Featurespace.

“It was important to them to have a cloud-based SaaS solution which is fully compliant and that frees up resources in their organisation, enabling them to focus on their primary goal – providing the ultimate entertainment experience for their customers.”

The VGW partnership is just the latest tie-up for Featurespace in Australia. Less than a year ago, Australia’s sovereign domestic debit payments scheme, eftpos, put its trust in Featurespace for a built-for-purpose fraud detection engine using artificial intelligence and machine learning. And fintech Shaype, previously Hay as a Service, one of Australia’s first born-in-the-cloud financial services, has selected Featurespace’s ARIC™ Risk Hub to detect and prevent fraud and money laundering on its mobile-first solution.
