U.S. Patent Office Issues DSS Two New Patents

Stocks in this article: DSS

ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DSS (Document Security Systems Inc.) (NYSE/AMEX: DSS) proudly announced that the U.S. Patent Office recently awarded the company two new patents.  

The first new U.S. patent called "AuthentiGuard ® VeriGlow ®" is being marketed to governments, pharmaceutical companies and corporations.   This is a technology that is used for the authentication of important documents such as passports, pharmaceutical packaging, labels, vital records and currency.

DSS's Chief Technology Officer, Michael Caton stated, "This is a very powerful forensic technology.  It is quite possibly the most counterfeit proof technology ever developed.  It is virtually impossible for a counterfeiter to find this technology on a document, let alone clone its contents and imagery."  

The second new U.S. patent, "AuthentiGuard ® Survivor 21™," is a technology that is utilized to indicate authenticity on digital images of checks, vital records, car titles, medical records, or other paper documents after being scanned.  

Under the Federal "Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act," banks are no longer required to return cancelled checks to customers.  High-speed scanners are used by banks, as well as corporations to create electronic images of checks and paper documents for digital storage.  In addition, businesses are now digital imaging checks using desktop scanners.  

According to Mr. Caton, "This technology is a major breakthrough.  Banks, consumers and corporations are now scanning checks and documents using commercial grade high speed scanners and desktop scanners.  This new digital processing created a need to verify the authenticity of the scanned check or document.   DSS was the first in the world to create a 'survivable' hidden check image that is embedded on the paper check or document during the traditional printing process.   When a consumer or business scans a paper check or document that contains our technology, a hidden image reveals itself on the digital version of the check (shown on monitors) to prove authenticity."
