PRODUCT AUTHENTICATION AND BRAND PROTECTION



Today many companies and manufacturers are plagued by traceability and counterfeiting problems

we revolutionize how brands protect their products, reputation and customers

Poor or absent traceability systems, smuggling and counterfeiting damage the whole value chain as they:
  • Threaten brand name and reputation
  • Reduce authorized sales
  • Trigger the cut of funds destined to R&D
  • Endanger the health of end-users
  • Increase environmental risks for water, soil and wildlife
  • Cause the loss of jobs and lower governments’ tax collection

ANTI-COUNTERFEIT SOLUTION

AUTHENA technology framework

  • Plug & Play. Open to be integrated in B2C environments and in the most complex B2B setups
  • End-to-end. Prevents counterfeiting, grants traceability and revolutionizes brand experience

Our product authentication solution is flexible and fully scalable

Our base authentication technology is built on a synergy between:

BLOCKCHAIN VERIFICATION

To store and verify product info, proof of authenticity, and change of ownership, ensuring data transparency and allowing digital audits

NFC PRODUCT TAGS

Near Field Communication physical/digital seals permanently linked to products, featuring fraudulent refilling and dilution protection

We combine and integrate different technologies and IoT devices to create the best possible version of Authena technology framework to fulfill our customer’s needs.

NOW IS THE TIME

Now more than ever you need the support of Authena for your business

Illegality threatens the achievement of the UN SDGs. Illicit activities deny governments of incomes destined to investments in public services, increase job loss and damage human lives and the environment

The recent wide adoption of NFC technology in fields that require high levels of security such as electronic passports and "contactless" credit cards proves the reliability of this solution

The ecommerce exponential growth due to COVID 19 pandemic triggered unscrupulous illicit behaviors and has caused an unprecedented increase in smuggling and forgery operations

Consumers are increasingly concerned about information, transparency, traceability and sustainability of their purchases. Tell them the story and prove them the impact behind your products

We created a platform to tag, track, & prove the authenticity of high value products

Our Product authentication Tag

Our patent pending NFC tag uses encrypted blockchain technology. This makes our authentication solution tamper-proof. The label allows you to track your product from production to consumption and features re-filling protection and anti-peeling.

A tap of a smartphone instantaneous connection

Our app or a direct NFC connection grants instant access to product history, sustainability certifications and proof of authenticity. Faster and safer than any solution based on QR code or image recognition.
