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.

Denuvo Anti-Tamper protects PC and mobile games from piracy. It protects a game, and its revenue, so that revenue can be reinvested in new and exciting games. Integration takes minutes and does not require source code modification. Denuvo Anti-Tamper solution offers an industry-leading crack-free window (160+ days) without requiring an always-online connection. Over 100 million players have played Anti-Tamper-protected games to-date.

Denuvo Mobile Telemetry is an innovative feature available to Denuvo’s highly acclaimed mobile game security suite. Launched in September 2020, the solution will further protect mobile games from being tampered with and allow publishers to collect data about the hacking, tampering and cheating attempts of their Denuvo protected games. The solution provides Denuvo customers a 360-degree view on attacks occurring on the open gaming platforms across all gaming segments and allows the developers to take actions per user.

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.
