Denuvo has contacted us about our previous article regarding its protection system/technology. As the team noted, its solution is not basically a DRM but rather a Anti-Tamper technology. Moreover, its solution is called Denuvo Anti-Tamper and not just Denuvo (Denuvo is the name of the company itself).
As Denuvo told us:
” Our 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 (as we don’t manage rights / act as license management in any way), but rather, Denuvo Anti-tamper protects DRM solutions, such as Origin Online Access or the Steam license management system, from being circumvented.”
But what about the rumored crack for Dragon Age: Inquisition? As Denuvo said, no working crack has been released as of yet for any of its games.
Furthermore, Denuvo answered to our open question on whether it will be able to tweak and enhance Denuvo Anti-Tamper in order to fight back the teams that want to exploit it.
” To answer the open question at the end of your article: No system is infallible, including ours (some press releases call our Anti-Tamper solution “uncrackable”, we are long enough in this business to have a more realistic view). Our job is to keep learning from what has worked and how things have been circumvented so we can always strive to be a step ahead of those who want to pirate our customers’ products.”
Last but not least, the team addressed the SSD rumors and claimed that they were false.
“Completely wrong rumor which is repeated over and over although many 3rd party tests (as well as we) state that our solution does not perform read / write operations to the HDD (hence we have no negative impact on the lifetime of SSDs or any other hardware component).”
