Latest Anti-Online Poker Cheat Claim by Cognisafe...Is It Real?
COGNISAFE ANNOUNCES THE ADDITION OF CHIP DUMPING DETECTION TO ITS PITBOSS-AC ONLINE CHEATING SOLUTION!
That's the anti-cheat poker claim and here's what they say:
Program offers real time solution to cheating in online games including use of bots.
Chip Dumping is becoming one of the most common frauds in online Poker and the new PitBoss-AC solution will save operators and networks huge sums in lost revenues. Chip Dumping is the practice whereby one player deliberately loses his chips to another player at the table, with the losing player often having obtained his chips by fraudulent means.
The PitBoss-AC program also has the ability to prevent cheating through the use of online bots, online advisors, software cheats and even collusion. The Bot protection program within PitBoss-AC has already been successfully deployed for online gaming clients. In addition to protecting online games from cheaters, the system, which monitors games without intruding on the player’s experience, can provide customers with player data such as gaming patterns (profiling) which reflect playing habits and skill levels.
My opinion: Well, I have not yet seen any conclusive evidence that Cognisafe's PitBoss-AC solution actually solves the problems they say it does. I'm not saying that it's not effective, but until I see some results and positive analysis published by entities other than Cognisafe itself, I cannot endorse their product.
