“The COVID-19 pandemic has been a boon for the gaming industry but, in parallel, it has experienced an increase in cybersecurity attacks. The growing digital footprint of gaming companies, combined with the sensitive data they hold, makes them a highly lucrative target for attackers, which are always on the lookout for weak points in these companies’ external attack surfaces,” said Yaron Tal, Reposify’s Co-founder and CEO.
The gaming industry is known for its need for speed in innovation and development processes. The fast development cycles and frequent product launches can result in bugs, misconfigurations and other errors which may remain unknown until it’s too late. Gaining real-time visibility into critical exposures allows teams to proactively discover, mitigate and manage such risks before they can be exploited by attackers.
