Macrovision Corporation (Nasdaq: MVSN), the leader in copy protection, has signed an agreement with SEGA Europe under which the software publishing giant will use Macrovision?s SafeDisc advanced security solution on its forthcoming PC CD-ROM titles.
SafeDisc is the leading PC game protection solution available to interactive entertainment publishers, offering multi-level encryption which can be efficiently integrated by the software developer deep within the code of a game without affecting the game?s performance. These layers ensure that the robust security can remain intact far beyond standard copy protection schemes which simply ?wrap? each game in an encrypted ?sleeve?.
?We had no hesitation in reaching this agreement with Macrovision,? says Mark Simmons, Head of Operations, SEGA Europe. ?We need to feel confident that our PC games are secure and Macrovision?s SafeDisc solution offers unrivalled protection.?
?We are delighted that SEGA Europe has chosen Macrovision?s SafeDisc security solution within its forthcoming titles,? adds Martin Brooker, European Director of Sales, Macrovision. ?We believe that our security is the most sophisticated and secure out there, we?re thrilled that SEGA Europe agrees.?
