Cybersecurity company, Kaspersky has introduced the beta version of its Anti-Cheat solution to combat in-game cheating. The cloud-based offering is said to ensure fair play in the eSports industry by providing real-time cheat detection and sharing automated reports with users.
According to the company, in today’s time, online gamers often fall victim to unfair gameplay. The Irdeto Global Gaming Survey takes this idea even further by noting that only 12 per cent of gamers have never experienced unfair actions of other players while one in three gamers have confessed to cheating online.
In the hopes of significantly reducing the amount of unfair behaviour in online eSports competitions, Kaspersky wants to integrate its solution through the API of various eSports platforms – this would give players peace of mind in ensuring fair play during the online stages of tournaments.
“Fair play is highly important to gamers who strive to show their class and skill. When games like CS:GO, PUBG or DOTA 2 become overloaded with cheaters, honest gamers will either stop playing or even give up the game for good,” says Anton Selikhov, Product Owner at Kaspersky Anti-Cheat.
“Therefore, our solution will provide tournament organisers with an opportunity to maintain a stable balance in the gaming community and monitor the progress of their competitions. With the introduction of Kaspersky Anti-Cheat, our company brings over 20-years of relevant experience in fighting malware and cybercrime, to a new territory.”
Kaspersky Anti-Cheat solution is available across the globe and is designed for both game developers and eSport tournament organisers.
