Supply chain security
MicroTag technology supports a complete solution for brand security requirements, dealing with the realities of multiple penetration points along the legitimate supply chain, including OEM lines.
Our technologies support various track and trace (T&T) solutions by providing the ultimate secure authentication of the data embedded in the T&T media. This overcomes inherent security weak points found in all data-holding technologies, especially those based on electronic chips, including their encryption protections.
MicroTag is certified to ISO-9001-2008 and complies with ISO-12931:2012 performance criteria for authentication solutions used to combat counterfeiting of material goods.
We have logged a highly successful track record in the brand protection business line for around 14 years of full commercial operation, having protected more than four billion product units (different products / projects) valued at more than $30bn. This has given us a lot of valuable experience in commercialising authenticating technology for large-scale applications.
