Mastering new challenges in brand protection


Today, the job of brand protection managers is tougher than ever before.
The manufacturing of high quality fakes has become the rule, the distribution of counterfeits to unintentional purchasers over the Internet has become a gigantic and hugely lucrative business, counterfeiters have become more sophisticated, just to mention a few of the new challenges that need to be mastered.



To effectively fight back it is necessary to strike the "value chain of fakes" on all of its three key components, i.e. the manufacturing, the distribution and the purchase of fakes. Certilogo provides an integrated suite of solutions that attacks counterfeiters on all of these fronts.



That's what makes us the trusted partner of top brands across industries.
