Document Security Systems Inc. is a leader in counterfeit protection, product diversion and brand protection technologies. The company develops and manufactures products and packaging containing patented optical deterrent technologies that help prevent counterfeiting from the use of the most advanced scanners, copiers and imaging systems in the market.

The company today announced that it was awarded seventeen new patents in the last 12 months for technologies in counterfeit protection, product authentication and brand protection. Three of the most important patents granted to Document Security Systems include:

• AuthentiGuard Prism is a covert brand protection and authentication technology where a hidden image is revealed with a proprietary lens. This technology provides a brand owner the ability to prove that a particular product or document is authentic.
• AuthentiGuard VeriGlow is an invisible image system which can be seen by passport scanners currently installed around the world. This technology is used for high-security documents as well as packages for the pharmaceutical industry.
• AuthentiGuard Pantograph 5000 is the most effective “warning word” overt counterfeit deterrent technology ever devised to protect checks, coupons, labels, documents and packaging from today’s most sophisticated scanning and copying systems used by modern counterfeiters.

The granting of the patents show that the company’s investments into research and development is producing significant results. These results will pay off down the road as the rapidly expanding business for Document Security Systems continues to grow in today’s current environment as counterfeiting grows globally.
