Digitalization has significantly transformed the gambling industry. Today any mobile device is a potential casino. Market players are talking about blazing developments. Costs have been streamlined and a critical problem has disappeared: staff shortages. The new context has also brought data management solution providers to the table, storing data securely, making it easy to access and eliminating the risks of business interruption. For M247 Europe, a leader in cloud, connectivity and data management solutions in Romania, gaming operators are among the most important customers. We turned to them to explain how data became a real ace in the sleeve for the gambling industry.
Gambling operators have good reasons to be interested in managing and protecting data in the cloud. M247 has listed below a few reasons why managing and protecting data in the cloud has become essential for our industry.
The cloud already provides important security measures, protecting sensitive customer data and financial transactions. Cloud platforms include robust security services, including encryption, access controls and regular security audits, which can help casinos comply with industry regulations and protect customer data. It’s like having a safe deposit box where you keep your most valuable assets. Whether you’re dealing with cyber-attacks, natural disasters or security breaches, data must be secured by all means. Storage capacity in M247 data centers has increased fivefold in the last few years alone, with the gaming sector accounting for a significant share of the current customer portfolio.
Scalability and flexibility
Cloud storage allows operators to adjust storage needs as demand fluctuates. Consider it an adaptable resource that allows gaming operators to be prepared for busy times and quieter ones. We already know that the gambling industry frequently experiences fluctuations in demand, such as during peak times for certain games or during special events.
The M247 allows operators to tailor their data storage needs as required, without the need for large upfront investments in hardware and infrastructure. M247 points out that a modern data center creates the ideal environment for growth, as customers can always expand their storage or access a wider range of services.
In the event of data loss or system failure, data recovery through cloud solutions ensures minimal downtime. This should be the safety net that allows you to continue the game.
With over 20 years’ experience in data management and an enviable industry-wide global network, M247 has developed a true team of experts, making it the perfect choice as a technology partner for protecting and securing assets.
M247’s cloud technology allows employees in the gambling industry to easily access data from anywhere there is an internet connection. It’s like having a virtual office that now favors collaboration and remote working.
Cloud innovations have enabled casinos to remain competitive by quickly introducing new gaming features and adapting to ever-changing market dynamics.
