How can I secure/prevent threats against my Player Hardware?


EngagePHD is supported across a wide variety of hardware platforms.  Unless your 'Player' is used for touchscreen interactive applications, the devices are at minimal risk since they are configured for one sole purpose and no-one will be using them to browse the Internet etc... and unnecessarily expose the device to threats.  However Ping HD is not responsible for supporting/providing patch updates and antivirus solutions on your hardware, but we do recommend you consider threat mitigation.

Below we list the different hardware/operating system versions supported and our recommendations to minimize/prevent risk from cyber threats:

Microsoft Windows

Android (Generic)
Android (Cenique/Inreality C610)
