Document Security Systems Readies Beta Testing for AuthentiGuard® Authentication Solution for iPhones

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.

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
Information Technology (IT) service providers have historically struggled between the huge capital expenditure and long development cycles of building their own cloud versus the thin margins and limited flexibility of using public retailers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).
