Denuvo Strikes Anti-Cheat Partnership

Denuvo announces a partnership with the Esports Integrity Commission to bring anti-cheat software to esports tournaments. Denuvo states its anti-cheat solution does not impact game performance. This is similar to how it presents its DRM software, though many gamers insist Denuvo DRM does negatively affect games. Besides promising to not harm the gameplay experience, the announcement makes bold claims on how well this will detect cheating:
Denuvo Anti-Cheat is developed by security experts who are gamers themselves and the solution has no negative impact on in-game performance. Unlike many other anti-cheat solutions on the market, Denuvo operates on the binary, not the source code, making it very easy to add to games used in tournaments. It integrates directly into the product build process and does not require APIs or SDKs, which means fewer tools for build engineers to manage and fewer tools for developers to install. Denuvo Anti-Cheat provides unique proactive cheat monitoring in real-time while detecting all cheats, not just the easy ones. Unlike other anti-cheat solutions, Denuvo provides comprehensive and transparent data to the game publishers, supplying them with insights on cheats and game cheating. Denuvo cheat data is fully available and owned by the game publisher – an unusual practice compared to other game protection providers.
