New Jersey

Continent 8 (C8) has been live in New Jersey since 2019 with dual co-location facilities suitable for highly resilient data residence, backup and disaster recovery requirements.

Continent 8 is a holder of highest, full license accreditation – Casino Service Industry Enterprise (CSIE), and hosts the only purpose-built data center facilitating the online market. This allows online providers to host neutrally, not requiring partnership with an existing casino property for data hall use.

We have a full suite of solutions in order to enable online sports betting and iGaming hosting regulatory compliance in New Jersey via simple provisioning.

INFRASTRUCTURE AND DATA RESIDENCE

With dual co-location facilities connected resiliently to our own backbone and peering, meeting the regulatory requirements for in-state data and gaming execution can be accomplished with Continent 8.

Additionally, utilising its licensed casino services provider capability, Continent 8 is able to facilitate live dealer facilities provision, with an active existing customer.

RESILIENCE

Backup Equipment

New Jersey regulations require backup equipment that is used to conduct internet or mobile gaming to be located on the premises of a casino hotel facility within the territorial limits of Atlantic City. Backup gaming equipment that is not used to conduct internet or mobile gaming, but which is used only to restore data to primary gaming equipment, may be located within the State of New Jersey, but has to be in a separate facility.

Our dual site capability in New Jersey can accommodate this requirement.

Backup Data & Equipment

C8’s regulated cloud includes native backup to dual site capability – this means customers can meet regulatory requirements in either site easily and cost effectively.

Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Similarly, Continent 8 can help satisfy New Jersey regulatory requirement for a backup equipment secure hosting to ensure business continuity in case of a disaster.

CYBER SECURITY

Vulnerability Assessment

New Jersey regulations and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) require annual system integrity, security assessments, vulnerability scans and penetration tests of operators’ information systems to ensure risk identification and mitigation. C8 Secure offers this service to customers as a professional services engagement to demonstrate compliance and aide in resolution.

Defensive Infrastructure

New Jersey regulations require operators to ensure security and resilience of the infrastructure. Continent 8 has a comprehensive L3-7 fully integrated global protection service to meet this requirement and prevent malicious acts such as DDoS attacks.

Intrusion Detection & Response

PCI DSS requires the ability to detect cybersecurity events. Continent 8 offers IDS and IPS capabilities via its Network as a Service (NaaS) firewalling service, as well as a managed endpoint detection and response solution.

Application Protection

As iGaming and Sports betting platforms expand their integrations with partners and introduce new applications and features, the risk of vulnerabilities increases due to broader exposure of web applications and APIs. Continent 8 WaaP (WAF) capability provides minimum OWASP top 10 protection and other

comprehensive capabilities to guard against malicious bots and both known and emerging vulnerabilities as required by PCI DSS.

Intrusion Resolution

Demonstrating resolution capabilities is recommended by PCI DSS. Continent 8 can leverage its Managed Security Operations Center (MSOC) to collect, categorise, and manage the resolution of intrusion threats in customers information systems. Utilizing existing customer logging capabilities as well as fully integrating with all our cyber solutions: WaaP, MDR, IDS/IPS and
