Reliable authentication anywhere anytime using digital counterfeiting protection by Schreiner ProSecure
An inferior copy or a high-grade original product? At interpack in Düsseldorf (May 8 – 14), at the joint VDMA booth, Schreiner ProSecure will be showcasing security technologies that provide quick answers to this question. With digital counterfeit protection features that can be read by using a smartphone, authenticity can be easily determined and the supply chain secured.
BitSecure authentication now also available for cell phones
Mobile authentication has major advantages. A wide range of users, from employees and customs officers, merchants and service partners through to consumers, can authenticate goods anywhere anytime without the need for special technical tools. For this purpose, Schreiner ProSecure has extended the BitSecure technology authentication by a mobile identification option and developed a special application for smartphones. The app allows the user to read the digital copy protection pattern on the mobile device and to find out within a matter of seconds whether the identified product is an original or a fake. The copy protection patterns can either be integrated into identification labels or applied directly on products or product packaging by printing or laser engraving.
NFC labels for direct communication
Another form of digital authentication is the combination of identification labels and NFC technology. For manufacturers, NFC labels open up completely new avenues of communication with partners along the distribution chain and consumers. For example, when reading the chips with an NFC-capable cell phone, the user may receive important information about identity and distribution channels, as well as optional information on integrated counterfeit-protection features, service instructions, warranty provisions or current offers that can be updated as required. As the NFC marking can be adapted to the relevant surface, it is suitable for use on any product and packaging.
