How to secure your goods against Counterfeiting?

Counterfeiting is no longer restricted to bank notes, cheques and bonds. Products such as pharmaceuticals, tobacco products and luxury goods like liquor and perfume are now commonly copied.

High End Security Printing Software

Counterfeiting business already represents 9 % of the world trade. Various sources state that the annual growth rate of counterfeiting may be as high as 20%. More and more companies are now confronted with counterfeiting which dilutes the value of their brand assets.

Agfa Graphics developed software solutions for the high end security printing industry and used this experience to build a software solution for brand protection and other general protection applications, named :Secuseal.
