Identifying and protecting vulnerabilities
Before protection is implemented on a game, our expert team profiles the game to find important yet not performance critical functions for protection.
Through our profiling:
- We combine the profiling data collected with static analysis to find the optimal setup for a game’s protection
- Game publishers and developers perform a final performance review on the protected game to ensure there is no impact to the gaming experience

“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
