The counterfeit of brands & products is a major issue for brand owners and in some instances for governments, negatively impacting their image and resulting in financial losses. Counterfeit brands & products represent approximately 10% of world global trade and may even pose a serious health risk to consumers.

We supply several hundred million coded optical labels each year to help brand owners protect their products and to give consumers reassurance in the authenticity of products they are buying.

Based on pure high security visual authentication or combined with smartphone-based automated controls, our solutions, multi-awarded, are among the most advanced and secure available. 

They have been selected by the most famous brands and by governments for their sensitive product protection.

Optical labels and seals
They include easy visual authentication features and tamper evidence characteristics and are applied directly to the product or on the outer packaging. A security hologram or sticker is affixed to the products in the form of a label for immediate authentication through a simple visual inspection. It is possible to add level 2 & 3 of security that can be identified by experts using inspection tools.
– Individually-coded label 
Appropriate coding can be added to the whole range of SURYS labels : either alphanumeric characters for a visual identification, or a bar code or 2D data matrix for an automatic reading. These random codes are generated with specific software. Once generated the codes are stored in a specific database; The codes can be verified either by a inspectors or by the consumer using own’s phone or on the Internet, directly on the associated website of SURYS (
Different printing techniques are available at SURYS to write the code in a secure way according to the product considered and the purpose to achieve : inkjet, thermal printing, laser engraving, micro encoding….
– Tamper evidence and destructibility
As part of any authentication label program, SURYS can offer two flexible options for tamper evidence : Patterned and Total Destruction.
The label cannot be removed without being destroyed, thus enabling evidence of tampering and a sealing function.
Some of our products also offer destructible substrates to prevent reuse of the labels.
