MPL Retains Title as India’s Most Secure Gaming Platform for Second Year in a Row

Bangalore, May 31, 2024 – Mobile Premier League (MPL), the world’s leading mobile esports and digital gaming platform, has solidified its position as India’s most secure gaming platform for the second consecutive year. This achievement is further bolstered by MPL receiving the industry-first SHIELD Trust Certification, adding to its list of third-party certifications from independent global security organizations.

The certification, awarded by global risk intelligence agency Shield, considers factors like user authenticity, user-to-device ratios, and the prevalence of malicious tools on the platform. With a trust score exceeding 97.04%, MPL is the world’s first multi-gaming company to receive this prestigious recognition for the second year, solidifying its position as the most reliable and secure platform for gamers.

“The mobile gaming industry has experienced explosive growth in India, and with that comes a growing responsibility to ensure player safety,” said Kaustubh Bhoyar, SVP – Engineering at MPL. “Evolving cyber threats are a constant challenge in the online space, and MPL is committed to staying ahead of the curve. This SHIELD Trust Certification, with its rigorous assessment, along with other recognitions we received, is a testament to our unwavering commitment to building a secure and trustworthy platform for all our players.”

Since its inception in 2018, MPL has consistently introduced innovative initiatives that prioritize player safety and a user-friendly experience. This is reflected in its robust seven-layer security system, built upon rigorous reviews from six independent global security organizations.

Apart from the SHIELD Trust Certification, MPL has earned recognition from international consulting firm Arthur D’ Little for its user verification procedures, player protection protocols, responsible gaming practices, financial integrity, conflict resolution mechanisms, advertising ethics, and promotional activities.

The All India Gaming Federation (AIGF), led by former Supreme Court Judge J. Vikramjit Sen, awarded MPL the AIGF Approved Games Certification, underscoring the platform’s adherence to applicable laws, regulations, and the AIGF Skill Gaming Charter. For fair play, MPL has certifications from iTech Labs for its No Bot Policy, Peer-to-Peer Gameplay, and Random Number (RNG) protocols, ensuring a bot-free and authentic player experience. MPL’s commitment extends to staying ahead of evolving cyber threats through regular annual audits conducted by leading cybersecurity experts. Furthermore, MPL actively encourages responsible security research by offering rewards of up to INR 10 lakh for identifying and reporting valid security vulnerabilities through its Global Bug Bounty Program. It also takes a proactive approach to security by preemptively banning fraudulent accounts. Last year, MPL became the first company in the paid competitive gaming industry to ban over a million accounts for using unfair means to manipulate gameplay results
