2DTG offers a comprehensive strategy and cost effective solution for Brand Protection, based on its Data Matrix Decoding/Encoding software and patented Barcode Authentication technology. Data Matrix symbology is widely used today for product serialization, document tracking, etc. thus making it an excellent candidate for upgrading this “data mark” to the “data + security label”.
The solution includes three major components of Data Matrix build and analysis:
Authentication and/or Encryption and/or Validation
While the first two components ensure data integrity, third one – UV inks printed marks - provides anti-copy protection.
This technology can be seamlessly integrated into existing barcode based Track and Trace and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems, providing brand security across the entire supply chain and helping customers increase efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure safety.
Major industrial companies want complete product traceability, requiring Data Matrix barcodes (including DPM symbols) on most parts/products they procure/manufacture. Counterfeiting of these products constitutes a serious and growing problem that is spread across all major industries: auto parts, aviation, electronics, food, tobacco, software, alcohol, etc. According to the International Chamber of Commerce, the global economic and social impacts of counterfeiting and piracy is estimated at US$1.7 trillion in 2015 while putting 2.5 million legitimate jobs at risk each year.
2DTG offers solution both for traceability and anti-counterfeiting in one package. It is interfaced to Windows, Linux, Android, but it can be embedded to a custom built platform/IDE, as well.
Barcode Security Suite (Data Matrix) is the prime software package in this line. It employs the concept of Digital Signature for barcode authentication. A digital signature scheme allows one to sign an electronic message and later the produced signature can be validated by the owner of the message or by receiving party. To strengthen the product authenticity, protective software offers also one more layer of protection - additional barcode encryption (on top of authentication).
