Having anti-counterfeting measures in place are a must for brands who sell online as counterfeiting affects every market – from fashion and food to pharmaceuticals and consumer goods. Protecting revenue and reputation are of course key goals for putting a stop to counterfeit sales, and so too is safeguarding your customers from health and safety risks.
As the fraudsters become more aware of online detection processes, it’s vital for businesses to ensure that the right anti-counterfeiting strategy with the latest technology is in place. It will not only make it difficult for counterfeiters to profit from a brand’s reputation, but they can also be stopped quickly and effectively.

Crawling 1000 marketplaces and websites, domains, social media and mobile app platforms worldwide to cover 99% of all counterfeit sales, the counterfeiters are hit everywhere they turn, until they give up! The tech team is constantly updating ZERO – to keep pace with the rapidly changing landscape.
> Identify. ZERO automatically identifies key offenders through the cross-checking of data between channels and sites, conducting self-learning risk-based analysis of all matches. With strong innovation in data-clustering, ZERO creates a full evidence package to support on and offline enforcement.
