Digitally connected devices are gaining an increasing foothold in our offices, cars, homes and even our health. By 2020, the number of such devices are estimated to exceed 40 billion. With great digital innovation comes however an even greater cybersecurity threat.

At Denuvo, we aim to eliminate these vulnerabilities primarily stemming from the lack of binary protection. With our Anti-Piracy Technology Platform, connected devices are safe from runtime attacks, tampering, reverse engineering or unauthorized access to critical controls and data.

“After completing extensive market research, Tripwire Interactive chose Denuvo Anti-Tamper to launch our highly anticipated Maneater game, the first-ever single player open world action ShaRkPG . We know the launch period of a game is the most important from the sales perspective, resulting in 60-70% of total sales, and piracy can seriously damage those initial earnings, so it is excellent that the game has remained uncracked so far! Another highlight in the process was the seamless integration of the Denuvo Anti-Tamper solution, our engineers were super impressed, and the support Tripwire received made the entire process very easy.”

Jon Carr, Technical Director at Tripwire Interactive

“Denuvo’s tech team has been extremely professional and proactively made their lightweight and adjustable mobile real time protection work even on the lowest-end Android devices without a noticeable performance hit. Their team has been responsive and has taken action on figuring out solutions and have proactively profiled their solutions’ performance in our builds and in the build pipeline. Denuvo is highly recommended for any F2P multiplayer game developer wishing to avoid cheaters from ruining their game and business.”

Sami Kalliokoski, Co-Founder of Traplight Games

“Recent release of [Denuvo-protected] Just Cause 3 has pushed the Chinese piracy group’s (3DM) cracking abilities practically past their limits. “In two years’ time I’m afraid there will be no free games to play in the world.

“Released in 2014, Denuvo Anti-Tamper has emerged as a new anti-piracy tool for developers—and a topic of conversation that now dominates r/CrackStatus.

“Chinese hackers have admitted defeat in their attempt to pirate a new video game release and warned that increasingly sophisticated software could wipe out piracy in the gaming industry altogether.


What is the denuvo Anti-Tamper solution?

Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology prevents the debugging, reverse engineering and changing of executable files to strengthen the security of games. It is not a DRM solution, but rather, Denuvo Anti-tamper protects DRM solutions, such as Origin Online Access or the Steam license management system, from being circumvented.

How does it work?

The license management from Steam or Origin grants legitimate consumers access to the game and our Anti-Tamper solution ensures that these DRM systems are not bypassed.

Do you have any negative impact on the game or customer experience?

No, since only performance non-critical game functions are used in the Anti-Tamper process, Anti-Tamper has no perceptible effect on game performance nor is Anti-Tamper to blame for any game crashes of genuine executables.

What is the difference between DRM and Anti-Tamper?

A Digital Rights Management (DRM) system binds the game to a legitimate user account and allows the game to be played whenever and wherever the consumer wants to download and execute the game. Anti-Tamper stops the reverse engineering and debugging of the DRM solution, but has no effect or limitation on the legitimate consumer. Anti-Tamper is completely transparent to legitimate game buyers and does not in any way impose activation limits, install drivers, or require a gamer to be “always on.”

Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper constantly encrypt and decrypt data on storage media?

No, Denuvo Anti-Tamper does not continuously encrypt and decrypt any data on storage media. To do so would be of no benefit in terms of security or performance.

Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper affect my SSD or any other type of hard drives in any way?

No. As mentioned before, Denuvo Anti-Tamper does not constantly read or write any data to storage media.

Does Denuvo Anti-Tamper leave any files on my computer after I uninstall a game?

Depending on the game, one Denuvo-related file may be left on your computer after you uninstall the game. However, this file is inert and you can either manually delete it or leave it on your system without it affecting your PC in any way.
