Denuvo provides technology and services for game publishers and platforms, independent software vendors, e-publishers and video publishers across the globe. Current Denuvo customers include Electronic Arts, UbiSoft, Warner Bros and Lionsgate Entertainment, with protection provided for games such as Star Wars Battlefront II, Football Manager, Injustice 2 and others.
“The success of any game title is dependent upon the ability of the title to operate as the publisher intended,” said Doug Lowther, CEO, Irdeto.
“As a result, protection of both the game itself and the gaming experience for end users is critical. Our partnership brings together decades of security expertise under one roof to better address new and evolving security threats. We are looking forward to collaborating as a team on a number of initiatives to improve our core technology and services to better serve our customers.”
Denuvo’s anti-tamper technology prevents hackers from copying and reverse engineering games to redistribute the content. Denuvo will leverage Irdeto’s security expertise, anti-piracy technology, Irdeto Cloakware software security and application protection technology and IP to strengthen Denuvo’s own core offering.
“Hackers and cybercriminals in the gaming space are savvy, and always have been. It is critical to implement robust security strategies to combat the latest gaming threats and protect the investment in games. Much like the movie industry, it’s the only way to ensure that great games continue to get made,” said Reinhard Blaukovitsch, managing director of Denuvo, Irdeto.
“In joining with Irdeto, we are bringing together a unique combination of security expertise, technology and enhanced piracy services to aggressively address security challenges that customers and gamers face from hackers.”
