Security

Gametize conducts regular cyber security assessments. The latest assessment was conducted between February and April 2018 by a CREST-certified cybersecurity firm, Horangi in the following 3 phases:

  1. Performed risk assessment to identify key assets
  2. Performed web application testing
  3. Validated vulnerability assessment to evaluate tactical security issues

Gametize.com’s payment is powered by Stripe, a reputable online payment provider, trusted by many Internet businesses. 

Gametize is PDPC and GDPR compliant. 

Here are some other in-house developed and implemented security features:

  • 2-Factor Authentication (2FA) for Project Administrators on the platform (optional)
  • SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for all HTTP requests and sensitive information is stored using a salted hash
  • Sensitive information such as user’s password is hashed and salted using SHA512 before storage (this is a one-way conversion; nearly impossible to generate the original password)
