Digitally Authenticate From Production to Purchase
HID’s Trusted Tag® Services and related technologies extend Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities directly to the hands of your end customers. A tamper-proof, near field communication (NFC) tag embedded into each product combined with HID’s cloud-based authentication services provide a unique and secure solution. And it’s fully compatible with NFC-enabled mobile phones, tablets and other similar devices.
With a tap of a phone, consumers receive instant validation of the product’s authenticity with customized messages and graphics designed by the manufacturer or anyone upstream in the process. HID’s Trusted Tag Services can facilitate transactions simply by tapping an attached or embedded NFC tag with an NFC-enabled smartphone or tablet to securely communicate information. This results in a frictionless authentication experience using a solution that fuels more powerful and dynamic IoT applications.

- Consumer goods such as wine and spirits
- Just about anything of value that can be faked
