MPL, SHIELD Partnership To Enhance User Trust, Safety

Esports and online gaming platform, Mobile Premier League (MPL), has partnered with SHIELD, a global risk intelligence company, to offer enhanced Fairplay and safety to their users.  SHIELD is currently helping online businesses build trust with over 350 million of India’s 750 million smartphone users.

This partnership strengthens MPL’s existing anti-fraud capabilities using SHIELD’s real-time risk intelligence capabilities for the platform’s 90 million active gamers worldwide. Fraudulent gamers will be immediately blocked from the platform, allowing genuine gamers to join tournaments with confidence. Moreover, this collaboration will also inform MPL’s gamer retention strategies. The combination of MPL’s dedication to user trust and safety and SHIELD’s expertise in the risk intelligence space will help deliver a more trusted and fair platform for current and future gamers.

The global esports and online gaming market size are projected to reach USD 4.75 billion by 2030, leaving the industry ripe with opportunities for gamers, and fraudsters alike. Fraudulent gamers could create multiple fake accounts to flood tournaments and increase their odds of winning. This behavior creates an unfair playing field for gamers, which would adversely affect user trust and confidence.

 “At MPL, providing the highest degree of protection against fraud and cheating is our topmost priority. We are focused on offering the users a safe and secure gameplay experience on the platform. In order to deliver this consistently, we are committed to using best-in-class technology, and our partnership with SHIELD has enabled us to continue to take this forward,” said Ruchir Patwa, VP of Security and Compliance.

“As threats continue to evolve, it has become imperative for businesses to treat risk intelligence as critical infrastructure. It’s a pleasure to be working with MPL who shares the same philosophy as us – stopping fraud and building trust with users – so they can focus on driving growth,” added Deepak Kumar, VP of Engineering of SHIELD.
