The hungry, innovative spirit of a startup.
The solid experience of a market leader.
Denuvo is the new company formed from a management buyout of the Sony DADC DigitalWorks team, the team that developed best-of-breed copy protection systems like SecuROM for games and Screen Pass for movies.
With over 300 man years of development experience among us, we clearly know what we’re doing. But now we’re infused with the fire-in-the-belly spirit of a startup, and we’re hungry to innovate for you.
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.
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.
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.
