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.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
