To obtain an optimal level of security, EasyAntiCheat adopts a fully holistic approach to anti–cheat strategies. Anti–cheating often turns into an ongoing cat and mouse game in which both the security team and the game hackers constantly iterate with new techniques and threat vectors. To optimize our own iteration speed and outpace any ongoing hacking attempts, we have adopted for a hybrid approach which focuses around prevention as well as detection on both the game client as well as on the game server.
The primary protection layer targets directly at disabling the root cheat mechanisms used by game hackers.
Efficiently discovering cheats is crucial to keep up with the emerging threats in a global environment. The process must be automated, swift, and not depend on human efforts.
The secondary protection layer targets the more complex and advanced cheats, using:
- Client data analysis to identify anomalies in the game process runtime.
- Gameplay behavior analysis to identify aimbot, jumphack, and speedhack.
