Macau | GLI to focus on deploying cybersecurity services throughout Macau next year

Macau (MNA) – The main goal of gaming testing and services company GLI for next year will be to introduce cybersecurity services to Macau, Ian Hughes, vice-president of Global Services at Gaming Laboratories International (GLI), told MNA on Thursday.

The company created the cybersecurity division five years ago and intends to “grow this service in Macau and provide a range of cyber security services through our Bulletproof offerings and technology” brand, Mr. Hughes says.

Regarding current activities, the vice-president added that the company will continue providing “evaluations for all types of gaming from all the manufacturers for the Macau jurisdiction and perform certification for the DICJ”.

Mr. Hughes indicated that the main challenge the company faces in Macau is linked to the shortage of laboratory space in the territory, which is impacting GLI’s ability to expand facilities.

A decade in Macau

GLI Asia is celebrating ten years of service to the Macau gaming market, the company said in a press release this week. GLI Asia opened for operation on 20 July 2007 and is fully accepted by Macau local residents.

“I am very proud of being a trusted laboratory and valuable local resource for the DICJ and supporting the unsurpassed growth of the gaming industry in Macau,” Mr. Hughes said.

Marina Wong (pictured), GLI Asia’s General Manager of Client Services, also said that it is especially meaningful “when our customers return to us again and again, asking us for additional service offerings, allowing us to grow along with them”.

GLI provides services to clients of all sizes in land-based gaming, online gaming, and in lotteries.

Key services the lab provides include testing for hardware, software, platforms, systems, games, and RNGs, says the company.
