THE BUZZ: In order to combat cyber criminals, Konami is set to adopt Digipass online security for it’s e-Amusement Gate and shopping service.

“Cybercriminals have a real economic incentive to acquire online gaming accounts as it offers a good return for relatively low risks,” said Digipass owner Vasco. “With fraud statistics on the rise, game developer Konami realized the need to implement a security solution for its community site e-Amusement Gate and its online shopping channel Konami Style.”

A press release explains that consumers will need to use a one button authenticator when using the services.

“The company implemented VASCO’s VACMAN Controller authentication back-end software in combination with DIGIPASS technology allowing its customers to log-on securely to Konami’s online services. Customers can choose for DIGIPASS GO 6 one-button authenticator KONAMI one-time password service. VASCO’s strong authentication provides a solid defence against keyloggers and identity theft and adds an additional security layer offering Konami’s customers adequate protection.”

EGM’s TAKE: It’s good to see Konami beefing up security before an attack takes place instead of plugging holes after.
