SecureDLC revalidates the platform API, preventing piracy and blocking access.
Assassin's Creed Origins uses Denuvo's solutions
Denuvo, the developer of digital rights management (DRM) software for games, has launched SecureDLC – a new technology providing protection from pirate attacks to DLCs.
SecureDLC is marketed as "the first of its kind" tech that "provides opportunities to extend the revenue tail for developers and publishers past the initial launch window."
The company says it's easy to bypass the existing barriers on popular gaming platforms like Steam and Epic, so it released a solution that can be applied to games that are free to play and rely on revenue stream entirely from DLCs and also on games that are currently protected by the existing Denuvo Anti-Tamper product.
"The Denuvo SecureDLC requires a small and simple implementation based on the application program interface to the game code to address the problem. The platform API is revalidated by the SecureDLC API mechanism, preventing pirate attacks and blocking access when it shouldn’t be granted."
According to Reinhard Blaukovitsch, Managing Director at Denuvo by Irdeto, the new technology is already being used with the current Denuvo Anti-Tamper clients: “Our current clients, big and small, are ecstatic with the results and we are happy to help them maximize revenue and also enable new business models for these games they spent so much effort building.”
