History of Innovation

DSS Brand Protection:

DSS is a leader in anti-counterfeit and authentication technologies.  Our custom security programs are designed to protect against product diversion, counterfeit and theft.

DSS’ Brand Protection business was founded in 1986 by Ralph Wicker, the father of our current VP of R&D, David Wicker.

Since that time, the Wicker family’s anti-counterfeit innovations have been adopted by government agencies, financial institutions, Fortune 500 companies, and the majority of North American security printers.

Between 2006 and 2010, DSS made a series of acquisitions to create a fully integrated brand protection franchise that delivers physical and digital solutions, centered on DSS’ Intellectual property, to leading brand owners.
