Document Security Systems, Inc. (NYSE MKT: DSS; "DSS"), a leading developer of anti-counterfeiting, anti-fraud and authentication technologies for governments, corporations and financial institutions, announced today that it will begin testing AuthentiGuard®, a patented iPhone application for authentication, targeted to major pharmaceutical and other companies worldwide. Testing on other platforms including Android is expected to take place during this year.
DSS’ cloud-enabled, next generation solution can reduce the need for costly proprietary authentication hardware and complex training. It permits efficient and cost effective authentication for packaging, documents and credentials. The solution embeds customizable, covert AuthentiGuard® Prism technology that resists duplication on copiers and scanners in a product's packaging. Product verification using the iPhone application creates real-time, accurate authentication results for brand owners that can be integrated into existing information systems
“Competing solutions for reading covert authentication features rely on proprietary devices such as readers that can cost as much as $1500 a unit and typically require tracking of the device and extensive operator training,” said Robert Bzdick, DSS interim CEO. “DSS’s AuthentiGuard® solution permits real-time authentication and reading of other information such as bar codes, while allowing the brand owner access control over users of the application. This solution is designed for ease of use with intuitive functions and is ideal for major manufacturers, such as pharmaceutical companies.”
AuthentiGuard is designed to continuously evolve and adapt to respond to constantly shifting gray market and counterfeit strategies. Standard features include: concurrent authentication and reading of 2D barcodes; and providing GPS tracking information, integration with cloud based security servers or local databases and reporting of results via a response messaging system.
The DSS Digital Solutions Division can provide any level of integration or customization that may be required by a particular customer or brand.
Document Security Systems develops and provides patented anti-counterfeiting, anti-fraud, authentication and brand protection technologies that are employed by governments, leading corporations and financial institutions. DSS works closely with clients, including Fortune 500 companies, to design proprietary technology solutions that deter unauthorized scanning and copying, and facilitate authentication of printed documents and packaging. DSS helps to reduce fraud in drug prescription redemptions and health insurance documents. The company deters counterfeiting of valuable documents, coupons and packaging, including those associated with credit and identity cards. DSS’ technology is specified by a United States government agency for identity documents. DSS product solutions are protected under United States and foreign patent law and under trade secrets.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
