Continent 8 Works Alongside Gaming Regulators in Brazil

It’s no secret that Brazil presents a prodigious opportunity for the sports betting and poker industries, which have both been legalized this year. As regulations are written and formalized, Continent 8 needs to be present every step of the way. By working alongside regulators, Continent 8 can help technical teams establish rules that ensure a safe and secure IT infrastructure for operators, platform providers, payment processors, and ultimately, the end user.

Our core business has been to provide technologies and enable gaming operators and end users to interact safely over the internet. Continent 8 helps technical regulator teams understand the different levels of cyber security, Cloud, hosting solutions, and network operations. This is not our first time meeting with regulators – previously, we have provided free consultations to many other technical teams around the world including New Jersey, Gibraltar, Malta, and other regions.

With four new locations opening up before 2020, the Continent 8 network will expand across South America and provide end users with the best-in-class connectivity experience. This region presents a range of promising opportunities, and Continent 8 is proud to be on the cutting edge of these emerging developments.  

Continent 8’s work in this region was recently highlighted in an article in Games Magazine Brasil, which you can preview below!
