Established in 2000, Vesdo is a leading security engineering and brand protection company, primarily specialising in building comprehensive security architecture and safeguarding protection to guard against diversion, fraud and counterfeiting.
We believe that every company’s image and viability are highly associated with its brand. Helping you to authenticate, verify, and track and trace your valuables globally against illicit counterfeiting activities is our daily business.
We provide technologies for product authentication, product verification, and track and trace.
To design a comprehensive security track and trace and supply chain integrity system a multitude of aspects have to be considered. Many technologies, provided by various subcontractors and specialists, need to be integrated, so in order to have access to all available technologies and suppliers it is essential for the consultant to be completely autonomous.
That's why Vesdo is fully independent – we do not sell products or receive commission payments from any suppliers for product sales. This independence allows Vesdo to work solely in the interest of our customers by identifying the most suitable, cost-effective and efficient technologies.
Vesdo analyzes its customers’ needs for brand protection and the logistical requirements for tracing material flow across the entire global supply chain. Based on these findings a comprehensive, integral, scalable security track and trace concept is worked out, covering both technical and organizational needs.
One of the core problems in the fight against counterfeiting is that most brand owners don’t know what really occurs to a product in the supply chain. This lack of information hinders their efforts to protect themselves against illicit activities. Vesdo’s security track and trace system is a powerful defence against counterfeiting, and it provides detailed and valuable data related to material flow through the various distribution channels.
Our labs undertake ongoing, intensive research and development work. As a result of these efforts and the work we’ve done for our clients we have been named as inventors in six patent applications covering security track and trace technologies and related IT architectures.
At the beginning of any brand protection and anti-counterfeiting project a comprehensive system concept has to be developed that integrates technological aspects, business processes and security requirements. The combination of security technologies, track and trace functionality and basic parameters of the entire landscape have to be defined.
Vesdo’s experience in successfully laying out security track and trace systems in large companies is your guarantee for a sophisticated, cost-effective and robust brand protection and anti-counterfeiting solution.
An effective brand protection solution must include mechanical and electrical embedding into existing manufacturing environments, packaging lines and supply chain infrastructures in order to keep line yield at a high level. As we have mastered both barcode and RFID technologies, we can support our customers in finding the optimal system layout.
Our test facility enables us to verify the functionality and performance of coding and security devices, reducing the need for expensive field testing. We have extensive engineering knowledge in embedding track and trace and security devices into existing and new packaging lines.
Existing business processes and related IT systems have to be adapted or newly shaped to fit the new or improved security infrastructure. Vesdo deploys specific, highly sophisticated tools for modelling, documentation and, if required, simulation of business processes for proof of stability and effectiveness.
We have generic process models for all security track and trace-related business processes, allowing them to be quickly and efficiently tailored to specific customer environments.
It will always be possible that a security device or technology will be compromised by criminals. Security is a never-ending, permanent process. Through predefined auditing processes the whole system has to be regularly checked for weak points and loop holes.
Vesdo’s experience is your guarantee that all relevant security requirements, processes and algorithms will be integrated in your antipiracy landscape. A security landscape should not only help in identifying fraud; it is also important that it provides proof and evidence for prosecution and legal work. Vesdo has a good knowledge of regulatory and legal requirements and restrictions in this respect.
