Infographics about Denuvo

Denuvo hardens conventional systems to the maximum extent based on the binary Codefusion Engine and DeepBinding.



Protects executables from taking secrets of an application which gives the cheater an unfair advantage over other users.

Denuvo protects the application in live-mode and thus provides a runtime application self-protection (RASP).


Media & Process QC

Usually the saying goes "quality not quantity." But with Denuvo Media QC, we give you both. Our talented and experienced quality control team will carefully check your title's menus, audio/video content, subtitles, disc functions, and more with an attention to detail unparalleled on the market.

And we'll test for any playability and compatibility issues.

Besides being colossal blockbusters that have generated over $5 billion between them, what these movies have in common is that they were protected with Denuvo's Video copy protection. Constantly upgraded and honed razor-sharp by Denuvo’s skilled engineers will keep you one step ahead of pirates, increasing your revenue while limiting your losses.



More than 300 days! That is how long one of the latest Denuvo-protected games has gone without being cracked. This is simply unprecedented and a testament to one of Denuvo’s core principles: always keep innovating.

Our Anti-Tamper solution allows publishers to reap the benefits of stamping out all piracy attempts in the crucial first weeks of a title’s release across platforms including Desktop, Mobile, Console and VR.

Our Anti-Cheat solution adds run-time application self-protection over the whole life cycle of the game far beyond the release window.


Irdeto Online Gaming Survey

A new survey by Irdeto found that more than half (60%) of gamers have had their multiplayer gaming experience negatively impacted by other players cheating.

The Irdeto Global Gaming Survey of 9,436 consumers across six countries also indicates that these online gamers will purchase less in-game content and even stop playing the game if they feel that other players are gaining an unfair advantage through cheating.

The Business Software Alliance estimates that 40% of all Enterprise software is used illegally each year. Imagine what 40% more revenue would do for your bottom line.

Denuvo’s solutions will help you close that 40% gap between your reality and your potential. We protect software and IP of ISVs or any other enterprise application from unlicensed use and distribution across platforms including Desktop and Mobile.



Digitally connected devices are gaining an increasing foothold in our offices, cars, homes and even our health. By 2020, the number of such devices are estimated to exceed 40 billion. With great digital innovation comes however an even greater cybersecurity threat.

At Denuvo, we aim to eliminate these vulnerabilities primarily stemming from the lack of binary protection. With our Anti-Piracy Technology Platform, connected devices are safe from runtime attacks, tampering, reverse engineering or unauthorized access to critical controls and data.



In the e-Publishing space, the leading license management solutions have long stopped moving forward. This failure to innovate is a major cost driver for publishers.

Denuvo’s Application License Management solution breathes new life into rights management for eBooks: content security that is constantly upgraded to keep the pirates at bay, interoperability between devices to keep your customers happy, and new business models such as subscription that are win-wins for everyone.
