UB.com and AbsolutePoker.com Upgrade Player Security
December 2, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB.com and AbsolutePoker.com continue to put players’ safety and security first with the launch of the new Security Token. Online poker players across the CEREUS Network seeking to strengthen their personal security can now add an extra layer of user authentication, and that means war on unauthorized account access and maximum protection every time they log in.
“We are committed to doing everything possible to safeguard our network and players, and we want to provide every option to boost their personal security, particularly those who keep sick amounts of cash in their accounts day-to-day,” said Team UB Pro Joe Sebok. “The Security Token will provide the most up-to-date security solution to ensure that every player’s personal information and bankroll is always protected.”
At UB and Absolute Poker, tap into proven state-of-the-art technology entrusted by banks and other security-reliant institutions by pro-actively choosing to use the Security Token; it’s a small electronic device that once activated and tied to an account will require a player to use both their password and to have the physical device at hand.
So, even if a player’s password has been compromised, the account will be safe with the Security Token still firmly in the player’s hand; By upgrading account security with the Security Token two-factor authentication process — the password plus the unique security code generated by the ‘one-button’ device — players across the CEREUS Network now have access to unrivalled security and peace of mind.
The Security Token can be used as a stand-alone security measure, or in conjunction with the SecureID PIN, a five-digit number, chosen by the player. Once a SecureID PIN has been activated, and a player completes the usual log in with a username and password, the account holder will be asked to enter the five-digit ID PIN to complete the login process.
Players already using the SecureID PIN at UB or Absolute Poker know the value of added layers of security. By using both the Security Token and the SecureID PIN in tandem, they’ll be two critically important steps closer to combating the potential for unauthorized access to their account.
The SecureID PIN can be activated immediately by all players from the new Security menu in the UB and Absolute Poker client. The Security Token is available for purchase at UB and Absolute Poker via their RAI$E and FAME Loyalty program Rewards Stores.
The new Security Token at UB and Absolute Poker — it’s the smart choice for the security conscious online poker player, and the CEREUS Network has it now.
