Steganos spy game with prize draw

Steganos : 19 November, 2008  (New Product)
On-line game stopping spies from looking at your laptop posted by Steganos on its web site with chance to win a cash jackpot and electronic gadgets
Steganos has launched a free online game that challenges players to defend their privacy from over-curious friends, family members and colleagues. Successfully completing the short game gives players a shot at the jackpot - a random draw with 100,000 Euros up for grabs, as well as mobile phones, iPods and USB-cup-warmers.

In the game, coffee cups, teddies, mobile phones and snowballs are among the weapons thrown at spies to stop them from looking at the secrets on a computer. As the game shows, a work friend can be as much of a threat to privacy as a little brother, grandmother or even the hotel workers in the lobby. Even Father Christmas isn't allowed to spy without punishment.

Players choose between different scenarios and are able to play the levels as often as they want. Each level lasts for one and a half minutes. Once a level has been completed, players can register for the prize draw. Independently of the performance in the game, the game generates a random number for the player, which is compared with the number that has been officially registered as the winning number.

The Stop the Spies game was developed by Swiss firm ComLudi in cooperation with the German games agency neue kreative.

Michael Marzy, managing director for Steganos, said: "Through this lighthearted game, we want to draw attention to the issue of data protection, the importance of which is often underestimated. Every day there is a new story about data being lost. It can happen so fast: a laptop gets left behind, a USB key slips out of a pocket, or a CD containing tax data gets lost. That doesn't have to be a drama, if the data is encrypted. Using Steganos's software, data can be encrypted in the blink of an eye. That can make the difference between misfortune and disaster."
