NEW YORK - MIKOH Corporation, an innovative technology company producing a variety of security and digital marking products, announced today the first licensing agreement in the United States of its RFID tag security technology to Serigraph Inc., a provider of creative decorating solutions, with experience in material, product design, and manufacturing utilizing multiple printing and finishing technologies. The agreement allows Serigraph to manufacture, market, and sell RFID labels, seals and tags that incorporate MIKOH's patented Smart&Secure(TM) tamper-indicating technology.
"As RFID is rapidly adopted in a variety of industries, ensuring the security of tags and the integrity of captured information is an important issue to take into consideration," said Joseph A. Klahn, business unit manager for consumer electronics of Serigraph, Inc. "MIKOH provides the most advanced technology to address the physical vulnerability of the tag."
MIKOH's Smart&Secure(TM) technology disables an RFID tag if it is interfered with after its original positioning, thereby protecting users from security compromises and commercial loss through counterfeiting, substitution, theft and other types of fraud. Tamper-detection for RFID tags will benefit any application where the integrity of the tag or seal is essential, such as pharmaceutical product tagging, container security, document authenticity and monitoring of safety equipment.
"Conventional RFID tags can be moved from one item to another without affecting the function of the tag," said Dr. Peter Atherton, CTO of MIKOH Corporation. "Tags originally placed on critical items can very easily be moved without the system being aware of any corruption, defeating the purpose of investing in automated tracking technology."
Smart&Secure, a proprietary technology patented by MIKOH Corporation, is compatible with all existing RFID frequencies, chip types and pressure-sensitive tag designs.
