OpSec Security, a provider of anti-counterfeiting and brand protection services today announced a partnership with UK-based blockchain developer Blockpool which will see the two develop an integrated offer combining “chain of custody” with advanced digital product authentication solutions.

OpSec’s services include advanced physical security technologies, supply chain track and trace services, and online/e-commerce monitoring and analysis. Blockpool builds B2B Blockchain Solutions with a focus on Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) software.

“We’re in an age where counterfeiting exists in the everyday lives of consumers,” OpSec CTO Ben Stump said. “Adding blockchain technologies to our track/trace and consumer engagement platforms will provide an enhanced layer of security and confidence for both brands and consumers alike.”

OpSec’s product lifecycle platform OpSec InSight will integrate with Blockpool’s “chain of custody solutions” to improve reporting precision and create new consumer engagement opportunities through advanced security tags and labels.

“Blockchain technologies can be leveraged to provide greater supply chain visibility and combat the distribution of counterfeit products, especially over the internet,” Blockpool CEO Kevin Bacon said. “Brands want to ensure that their products are protected and reward their customers for loyalty.”

“Distributed Ledger Technology, and in particular blockchain, is already promising to heavily disrupt the way supply chains are controlled and vetted,” Blockpool CTO Ken Foster added. “By partnering with OpSec, we can provide a perfect synergy of online and offline technologies.”
