Kaspersky Announces An eSports Cheater Detecting Tool

Kaspersky has gone from being banned from use on US government computers due to fears of spying, to actually spying on eSports tournaments to catch cheaters.

Kaspersky today announces the first step in protecting fair play in eSports with the introduction of a beta version of its new solution, Kaspersky Anti-Cheat, to help tournament organizers combat in-game cheating. This new cloud-based offering seamlessly integrates through the API of eSports platforms and provides real-time cheat detection in addition to automated reports for players who have the ability to make disciplinary decisions on the rule-breaker.
