Denuvo Anti-Cheat now available on Steamworks

Denuvo’s Anti-Cheat protection is available to all Valve Steamworks partners  


AMSTERDAM, January 18, 2021 – Denuvo by Irdeto, the leader in video games protection and anti-cheat security, is now available for direct anti-cheat integration through Steamworks, offering security solutions for publishers and developers whose games are available on Steam.

Denuvo has more than two billion unique game protected installs across all platforms, making it one of the leading security providers in the video gaming industry. More than 1,000 games have been secured by Denuvo worldwide, proving Denuvo’s strong understanding of developers’ needs and the gaming landscape. Denuvo offering its services via direct integration through Steamworks makes it easier for developers and publishers to prevent cheating in their competitive multiplayer games.

According to Irdeto’s latest research, 77% of global gamers are likely to abandon a game when cheating occurs, creating a tremendous monetization risk for publishers and developers. By offering its services directly through Steamworks, Denuvo can further its mission of bringing fairness and fun back to gaming by providing security solutions to all developers who want to protect their games and gamers from hackers and cheaters.

Denuvo Anti-Cheat incorporates advanced technology to secure competitive online gameplay. The technology helps game developers detect multiplayer cheats like aimbots, wallhacks, and modification of sensitive game logic or data to ensure fair gameplay. Developed by security experts and video game enthusiasts, Denuvo’s technology does not require modification of source code to integrate, has no negative impact on in-game performance, and its unobstructive detect-and-report methodology ensures the workflow of developers and gamers are never impacted.

“The value of a large network like Steam has many benefits that are contributed to and shared by all the participants,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, Managing Director of Denuvo by Irdeto. “We are very happy to make it easier for game creators to manage their communities and to be able to share our latest technology with game developers out there.”

Denuvo has a solid track record of protecting AAA titles for over a decade and collaborates with game developers of all sizes and offers cross-platform technology to combat cheating and piracy on PC, Consoles, iOS, and Android. Securing revenue sources beyond base game sales has become increasingly important for the publishers who rely on ad-revenues, in-game currency, downloadable content (DLC), and, more broadly, gamer’s long-term engagement with their games.
