Three Levels of Secure Solutions

Resource Label Groups offers three different levels of security and authenticity measures to protect your products:

Tamper-evident solutions ensure your product stays in the package.

Authentication solutions verify each product is genuine.

Tracking solutions: Authenticate and follow products from warehouse to consumer with RFID (radio frequency identification) and NFC (near field communication) tags.

Security and Authenticity Labels

Counterfeiting: Not limited to handbags and watches anymore

Trade in fake goods is not a victimless crime. These fakes infringe on the trademarks, copyright and profits of a range of legitimate organizations and industries, including:

  • Consumer electronics
  • Food & Beverage
  • Luxury cosmetics
  • Medications

Counterfeit medical supplies, auto parts, toys, food and beverages, cosmetics brands and electronics also pose health and safety risks to consumers.

Security and Authenticity Pyramid

Build layers of protection into your packaging

Resource Label Group has designed a system for security and authenticity based on the simplicity and elegance of the pyramid. The three tiers of protective products and techniques transition from the simplest, low-cost options to smart technologies.
