GSSC unveils security application
14 June 2012
Graphic Security Systems Corporation (GSSC) has announced the latest advancement to its security application for the iPhone.
The company says its new anti-counterfeiting technology helps to detect and defend against illicit activity, alteration, diversion and substitution.
The technology is based on GSSC’s patented Security Indicia technology, enabling everyday devices such as iPhones to be used as authentication tools.
“The iPhone has become the industry’s device of choice for security technology companies to extend their own digital verification methods,” says Scott Perkins, COO of GSSC. “But, while some organisations claim that authenticating products and documents via an iPhone or smart phone brings an added level of security to their customers overall solution, is it really secure?”
The new app gathers information that supports track and trace functionality and utility objectives, and also simultaneously authenticates additional covert security features.
The company says with the ever growing epidemic in the global pharmaceutical industry, its iDetector Cloud Data Center (ICDC) provides brand integrity teams with a multi-level security solution that allows them to verify, analyse and manage data in a one-step process.
GSSC’s covert Security Indicia (SI) is a patented and proprietary technology which uses a steganographic encoding process undetectable with the naked eye and authenticated only by using GSSC’s proprietary decoding methods.
