21Ventures seeds Israeli anti-cheating software for online games maker Cognisafe

21Ventures, a U.S. based venture capital firm, announced today an undisclosed seed investment in CogniSafe, an Israeli company providing real-time anti-cheat software solution for online games.

Cheating in online games is effectively a problem which causes significant losses to gaming companies and harms the players ability to enjoy the challenge and adventure of a cheat-free game environment.

The cheating problem in online games causes game providers to remove tens of thousands of paying players every month, due to suspected cheating. The removal is usually done following a complaint from other players, or after a post mortem analysis of player’s actions. In addition a significant number of legitimate players abandon some game titles, and cease paying, when they feel they have been cheated.

CogniSafe’s solution enables online game providers to detect, in real time, any deviation from proper gaming procedures by the online players, and remove cheaters from participation in the game, thus makes cheating attempts futile and enables other players to continue and enjoy a cheat-free gaming experience.
