Austria-based Denuvo, established in 2014 and later acquired by Irdeto in 2018, provides anti-piracy software. Initially employing 45 people, it employs hardware-based authentication to enhance game security, making cracking more challenging. FIFA 15 pioneered this technology. While games remain crackable, Denuvo extends the cracking process, frustrating pirates. Despite its effectiveness, players dislike the software for its impact on hardware, causing performance issues in games. Balancing security and user experience remains a challenge for Denuvo. Stay tuned with eXputer for the latest on Denuvo, gaming security, and related news.
