High-quality games are the lifeblood of game companies. Core technical frameworks and game component models are key to keeping high quality content produced and iterated quickly. Securing these frameworks and models is especially important.
Game companies often use intranet and extranet isolation (dual-computer mode) to protect R&D code, and employees need to switch between the two devices frequently, which seriously affects development efficiency. The game industry needs data security solutions that enable employees to remain efficient.
Game content production requires a large number of external devices, including graphics tablets, motion capture devices, etc. Data security solutions for the game industry need to be perfectly compatible with external devices and allow employees to fully utilize the value of these devices.
Adopting the dual-computer mode to physically isolate the Internet and the extranet, although it secures the game development environment to a certain extent, it seriously affects the development efficiency and user experience.
The dual-computer mode requires additional procurement of external network machines and supporting software, which results in high overall construction cost and operation and maintenance investment.
The data stored in SVN or Git code repository has unauthorized access in the intranet environment, which cannot be controlled and audited by fine-grained policies.
Even if the terminal has control means (lock box, DLP), the risk of leakage still exists, such as real machine debugging, using SVN, Samba and other shared network disk or remote file service, a common system tool for data flow.
DACS builds a secure computing environment (secure workspace) at the terminal, and the environment outside the secure workspace is personal space. The secure workspace and personal space are deeply isolated on the same device and do not interfere with each other, which is a good experience and easy to promote.
All behaviors of employees in the secure workspace are controlled by enterprise policies, and data cannot be transferred to personal space without authorization, but data from personal space can be transferred to the secure workspace. DACS can effectively replace the traditional internal and external network isolation mode.
DACS supports fine-grained user permission control and flexible setting of security policies (clipboard blocking, watermarking, outgoing permissions, etc.). Authorized employees can only access and handle core code assets such as SVN or Git code repository in the secure workspace. Even in the case of unauthorized access, DACS can still restrict the code data to spread only within the controlled boundary, so that the data cannot escape.
The office environment of art design positions is relatively open, and art resources stored on local computers, shared network drives such as Samba or remote file services, and advanced workstations may be leaked in a variety of ways such as outgoing network transfers and copies from external devices.
The process of art production requires the use of professional production software and external devices such as graphics tablets, and traditional security solutions consume a lot of performance of terminal devices, resulting in lagging.
DACS allows authorized users to access only the network addresses of art production assets and game ready assets within the secure workspace through software defined network perimeter, and downloaded content assets are stored in the secure workspace.
With leading lightweight trusted computing technology, DACS makes full use of local computing resources and is perfectly compatible with external devices (such as graphics tablets), ensuring data security and performance without changing the original usage habits of designers and engineers.
