Strong Product Authentication for Physical Goods

Strong Product Authentication for Physical Goods

The worldwide counterfeit goods market was responsible for over $1.4 trillion in losses last year and is growing rapidly, despite the best efforts of brands to protect themselves.

Internet store fronts have enabled physical counterfeits to thrive as rogue websites and online marketplaces provide anonymity and scale to the sellers while proliferation of advanced manufacturing has resulted in factories capable of producing replicas that are difficult to distinguish from originals.

Using the same technology as Apple Pay and Google Pay, Aulera Authentication allows brands to protect their physical products through unclonable NFC tags embedded in products that can be instantly authenticated with the tap of a customer’s smartphone.

At a high level, our turn-key protection offering involves product tagging at the factory, a web platform to manage and monitor active tags, and a smartphone app for customers to authenticate their purchases.
