Sports streaming platform DAZN has integrated GeoComply’s “cutting-edge” anti-fraud and geolocation solutions to enhance its protection against VPNs, Tors and Proxies.
With over 20 million global subscribers across 200 markets, DAZN stated it is implementing GeoComply’s services to provide a “reliable solution that ensures robust geo-blocking and reduces the risk of fraudulent activity”.
Sandeep Tiku, Chief Technology Officer at DAZN, commented: “DAZN takes fraud prevention very seriously. We’re constantly on the lookout for the best tools to protect our business, especially since we stream the most prominent sporting events yearly to tens of millions of people worldwide.
