ANTI-COUNTERFEITING TECHNOLOGY WITH NO EXTRA PRODUCTION PROCESS

Counterfeiting is a scourge that equally affects products and documents. AlpVision anti-counterfeiting technologies are covert, which means invisible to you, and highly secure. Suitable for printed, machined, molded products, and even high-value documents, AlpVision solutions are made to match your requirements.
Our counterfeit protection solutions are applied to over 30 billion branded products each year across industries worldwide. Additionally, AlpVision protects millions of high-value documents from forgery, tampering and counterfeiting. Our solution does not require special ink or paper nor any change in the production process.

ALPVISION’S COVERT ANTI-COUNTERFEITING

AlpVision provides covert anti-counterfeiting technologies as opposed to overt ones because they are intrinsically more secure as it is obviously more difficult to counterfeit what cannot be seen. Additionally, overt technologies are very difficult to abandon after adoption because the consumer expects to find them. Verification of visible technologies rely entirely on user skills, which are extremely variable. The usual drawback of covert technologies is that they require a specific proprietary device to be detected. This is not the case for AlpVision technologies. Detection is done using a regular smartphone combined with an app. The smartphone also helps collect valuable information about counterfeiting threats and technology use by sending usage data to a central server for analysis.

The beauty of AlpVision anti-counterfeiting technology is that it can also be used to seamlessly apply a digital protection layer to your track and trace system.
This helps you spot when and where you may have counterfeiting problems in your supply chain as well as identify gray market activities.

As a summary, below are the advantages of our solutions:

  • Highly secure against copying
  • Product verification with a mobile phone
  • Simple and low cost to implement
  • Invisible security
  • Instant positive authentication

OTHER INDUSTRIES

Pharmaceutical industry, tobacco, governments, lubricants, wine and spirits or precious metals industry may not have much in common at first sight. However, for all of them, counterfeit protection is a challenge.
The following markets are invaded by fake products or documents.

As a security solution provider, we are well aware of the various challenges faced by those industries:

  • Pharmaceutical: fake medicines kill patients
  • Tobacco: 1 in every 10 cigarettes is somehow related to illicit trade and this will extend to e-cigarettes soon
  • Governments: in addition to being counterfeited, documents can also be forged and tampered with
  • Precious metals: not only fake ingots but also ingots filled with tungsten are sold by counterfeiters
  • Wine and Spirits: fake alcohols may contain toxic substances
  • Lubricants: copying and dilution of lubricants can damage the brands’ reputation

But the industries above are not the only ones facing counterfeit issues. Footwear industry, electrical industry and many others can all benefit from our counterfeit protection.
