Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
The agreement gives PartyGaming access to Envisional's unique A3I intelligent search technology, which will find and examine all claims of affiliation to the six main PartyGaming websites. Envisional's technology will also detect any misuse of PartyGaming's name and brands.
Martin Weigold, Group Finance Director, who has executive responsibility for Corporate Social Responsibility within PartyGaming, said: "We take our legal obligations and ethical responsibilities very seriously indeed, and Envisional's advanced artificial intelligence capabilities will help us ensure continued compliance with strict marketing regulations, as well as protect the Party brands in which we have invested so heavily over the years."
Envisional's patented A3I - advanced automated artificial intelligence - technology allows automated searching for text, logos or images across the whole of the online universe. This includes newsgroups, blogs, B2B auction sites, trade boards, Internet Relay Chat channels and peer-to-peer networks, as well as the World Wide Web.
The British company's systems automatically sift and sort results, using A3I techniques to produce selective lists of hits, ranked in order of urgency and importance.
"PartyGaming is a very important customer for us," says Envisional's Chief Executive Officer, Michael Wheatley. "It is a young, dynamic company in the FTSE 250, and its whole business model depends on innovative and secure use of online technology.
"We are proud to work with a pioneering team that has built a major international business from scratch in just ten years."
Envisional specialises in new approaches to monitoring internet fraud, counterfeiting and brand abuse.
It is also known for detecting new forms of phishing attack, and for online piracy intelligence work with the Hollywood film studios, including revealing the huge volume of illegal downloads that followed last November's release of the James Bond movie, Casino Royale.
