Continent 8 Technologies is a company dedicated to providing managed hosting, connectivity and cloud security solutions for the online gambling industry. Now, it is launching a new endeavor it hopes will revolutionize the ecosystem. Continent 8 launched the Gaming Exchange, a private Internet exclusively for the gaming industry.

The Continent 8 Gaming Exchange allows iGaming companies to connect more quickly and securely over the Internet than they can with standard Internet. There is no additional configuration required.

This means that Continent 8 customers are able to connect directly with other Continent 8 clients via a VPN over the company’s backbone network rather than routing over the public Internet.

Gaming Exchange guarantees the lowest latency and best performance, and is available both locally and remotely. It’s a secure and reliable internet solution that offers public IPv4 addressing, uptime rates exceeding 99.9% and private IPv4 addressing.

It offers unrivaled security. Unlike the normal Internet, it is not vulnerable to external attacks and is fully protected with Continent 8. This reduces the chance of members being affected by a DDoS attack. The volume has been at an all-time high in recent months.

Customers connected to the Gaming Exchange can also access a Premium Portal. This dashboard allows them to monitor and analyze traffic flows within and beyond Continent 8 to other gaming partners.

Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer of Continent 8, describes the Gaming Exchange as an “exclusive network” that allows organizations to connect over a secure, private and extremely fast network. He asserts that it will be a game-changer for the industry.
