Data Defense is one of five hacking mini-games in Sly Cooper: Age of Thieves. In this mini-game, players will only need to move the control stick to move a firewall that will deflect several malicious codes from entering the system that the firewall is protecting. Several power-ups appear in this mini-game, including the ability to get more than one firewall or a cannon that will fire upon malicious code that breaches the firewall's defenses. As time passes, the amount of malicious codes that appear increase, making the mini-game harder. For each deflected code, a point will be awarded. Once the player gets enough points before the time runs out, the mini-game will be beaten.
