Brands That Trust Us
These are just a few of the brands that rely on OpSec every day.
Licensing Authentication Success with OpSec InSight™
Tag Every Licensed Product
Every product is tagged with a data-enabled label or hangtag
At the point of manufacturing, each Licensee would place the data-enabled authentication device on the officially licensed product. Each authentication device contains a human- or machine-readable unique identification number created through Track InSight™.
Declare Usage of UIDs
Assign product data to each unique identifier
Utilizing Trace InSight™, Licensors may request Licensees to assign product information to the UID. One-at-a-time or in bulk, Licensees can assign information ranging from general (i.e. product category) to the SKU-level specific. In addition, authentication devices that were destroyed in manufacturing can be recorded and identified as scrapped product.
Royalties are Paid
A royalty is paid by the Licensee to the Licensor for each officially licensed product
Per the contractual agreement between Licensor and Licensee, the appropriate royalty is calculated in a licensed management system such as Trademark InSight™. Trademark InSight can calculate royalties based on the contract attributes including geography, category, product and guarantees. The system returns an invoice to which royalties are paid to the Licensor.
Utilize Powerful Data
Get useful reports using words that you use with your team
OpSec InSight’s business intelligence reporting and dashboard tools provide fingertip access to your program’s data that allows you to make real-time decisions. Ask it a question and get the information you need… in the form you need it. No programming required.

Manchester United Genuine Products Brand Protection
Unquestionably one of the most iconic global sports brands, synonymous with heritage, quality and success it is not surprising that Manchester United has a large counterfeit problem.
Given that football is the world’s most popular sport with an estimated 3.5 billion fans² it is unsurprising that counterfeit merchandise is produced on a global scale. An estimated €500 million worth of revenues are lost in the EU every year due to sales of fake sports equipment³ – the results of which are lost jobs and funding of criminal organizations.
Manchester United chose OpSec to help protect and authenticate their licensed merchandise, while at the same time reinforcing their brand integrity and individuality. OpSec provides the global sports industry with an unrivaled range of fully integrated tools to support brand owners, covering the areas of optical, material and digital security.
For Manchester United, four key elements were integrated into the existing solution: Product Authentication, Product Enhancement, Supply Chain Management and Consumer Engagement.
