Security, Visibility, Assurance

Enjoy The Value of RFID

We know that RFID is revolutionizing the way business is done. We've experienced first hand in the market the great value RFID delivers to businesses across many different verticals, and we're committed to ensuring your organization can enjoy them to the fullest through the NeoCatena Security System.

RFID adoption is limited only by your imagination to use it. With advances in engineering driving down the total cost of RFID applications, its use has become widespread across a large number of industries: from Legal, Retail, Packaging and Agriculture to Biotech, Aerospace and Government there has been widespread adoption. Some examples include:

  • Pharmaceutical companies are using RFID to monitor for and protect against drug counterfeiting, theft and chain-of-custody records.
  • Healthcare organizations are using RFID to track patients, better control medications, track valuable medical assets, and even monitor waste management processes.
  • Transit Authorities and Event Management companies are using RFID for ticketing and access control, such as commuter trains and the 2008 Olympic Games.
  • Manufacturing organizations are using RFID to build more effective supply chains, reduce costs, improve quality, track assets, record production and maintenance information, and even record data on industrial laundry.
  • Retailers are using RFID to gain greater visibility into their distribution operations, reduce out-of-stocks, and increase supply chain efficiency.
  • Airports are using RFID to better manage our baggage as we travel.
  • Government and private business are using RFID for Access Control and Securing Assets.
  • Many organizations use RFID for track and trace of high value paper documents.
  • And many more...

Whatever your business goals, there are new and innovative RFID applications coming online everyday. For adoption of this powerful technology to continue organizations must mitigate existing risks through effective security. It's our goal to be your partner in building that security to ensure you continue to enjoy these benefits, both today and tomorrow.

We understand the Risks inherent to RFID

Using our background in RFID Security, research from our security lab, and experience working with companies like yours, we're passionate about finding new and innovative ways to enable your business to improve. We partner with you to avoid preventable threats such as:

  • Exposing your Enterprise Information Systems to unauthorized manipulation of business data.
  • Disruption of business continuity as a result of hacked systems. For example, a Denial-of-Service (DOS) attack could shut down critical components in your supply chain or at the Point of Sale resulting in revenue losses.
  • Placing your customers at risk, for example if you cannot identify counterfeit products using cloned RFID tags. This can be a life-threatening risk if you are a pharmaceutical company.
  • Losing business to competitors due to exploited security weaknesses and business disruption.
  • Loss of valuable intellectual property to hackers and thieves, or sabotage of critical operational systems.
  • Damage to your Brand Identity - the market can lose faith in trusted brands at the news of even minor security compromises.
  • Being held liable for not complying with industry rules and regulations and governing law. For example, the FDA mandates the implementation of an electronic pedigree system for the pharmaceutical supply chain to be implemented by January 2011.
  • Allowing hackers to use your systems as building blocks in composite attacks.
  • And many more...

Components of the NeoCatena Security System

The first step to improving any system is to understand it. We take a holistic approach to your security and begin with a comprehensive assessment of your RFID infrastructure. In the initial phase we work with you to understand the business motivations for your RFID application adoption and be clear on the goals of the application. Based on solid understanding of your application goals we consider the current state of the system and measure its level of effectiveness. NeoCatena employs comprehensive threat modeling processes as part of our system analysis practices. With your goals firmly in mind, and your current risks carefully measured, we prepare a comprehensive recommendation on the most effective way to secure your RFID infrastructure using the NeoCatena Security System, and the best way to implement it within your current architecture and processes, and how to maintain it as your business develops.
