EveryMatrix proves security credentials with WLA certification

The World Lottery Association (WLA) has granted EveryMatrix its Security Control Standard 2020 (WLA-SCS:2020) Level 2 certification, covering the supplier’s three core platforms.

To secure the accreditation, EveryMatrix underwent a Gaming Laboratories International (GLI) audit assessing its sports betting, iGaming and iLottery operations. As ‘no non-conformities’ were found, the firm was able to secure the certification.

Included in the certification are 21 controls for lottery technology suppliers, incorporating the use of cloud hosting for gaming systems and controls for privacy and application security.

Ebbe Groes, EveryMatrix CEO, said: “Security is a top priority for EveryMatrix and achieving compliance with this rigorous standard is proof of our commitment to our existing and future WLA customers.”

The addition of WLA-SCS:2020 Level 2 certification to EveryMatrix’s trophy cabinet follows Malta-based B2B firms gaining the ISO 27001 and ISO 20000 standards concerning security, quality, reliability, and customer service.

EveryMatrix is currently a supplier to several prominent lottery operators, all members of the WLA and/or the European Lotteries (EL). These include Norway’s Norsk TIpping, Greece’s OPAP, the Maltese National Lottery, Finland’s Veikkaus and Hungary’s Szerencsejáték.

Part of its service to some of these state-backed lottery companies is provision of sports betting services, which Frank Cecchini, group Head of Lottery Sales, and Ivan Rozic, OddsMatrix Head of Sales, discussed with SBC Media earlier this year.

“Lotteries tend to work together as they don’t compete with each other; they help each other as much as necessary,” Rozic explained.

“They are a kind of niche within a niche often governed by different, sometimes stricter, rules and value their spotless reputations which brings challenges potential suppliers need to be aware of.”

“We attend lottery trade shows and sports betting seminars where we meet lotteries face to face, and that gives them confidence. Lotteries are intrinsically conservative and cautious and are obviously under a lot of pressure not to create any waves in the press.”
