Securing console games from hackers and cheaters
Since the wide-spread lockdowns, everyone’s been playing a lot of video games. Industry leaders like Steam are seeing unprecedented increases in the number of people turning on their consoles. There are more than two billion gamers worldwide, and unfortunately, there are those who will try to ruin a game through cheating.
In fact, Steam set a new 2021 milestone by crossing 25 million concurrent users for the first time. The concurrent user count has been edging ever higher since lockdowns became widespread in March and April, outdoing the record over and over for several weeks.
How Denuvo Anti-Cheat SDK protects game
Secure online gameplay
mechanics that reward
Rewarding players with virtual goods for offline progress makes for an engaging gameplay experience, but it leaves your gameplay loop vulnerable to bots, exploits and hacks. Without adequate protection, cheaters and hackers emulate network protocols or exploit jailbroken consoles to fake offline progress, like the game score.
With Denuvo Anti-Cheat SDK, you can keep your virtual economy safe by ensuring offline progress reported by the game clients is secure.
Denuvo Anti-Cheat SDK offers various tools like obfuscation, virtualization and pointer encryption, making it easy to hide sensitive information from data-mining and preventing game logic or data from being tampered with.
The Anti-Cheat SDK is cross-platform. Integrate once and ship on different console hardware seamlessly.
