Brand protection solution company YPB Group Limited won a contract to provide its proprietary VariSec technology to a significant Southern African country.The news comes after YPB was recently contracted by a major first world economy to supply the proprietary VariSec technology for application in 15 million ePassports.This new order substantially increases YPB's penetration into the world of securing ePassports globally.This technology was developed by YPB's recently acquired subsidiary Intellectual Product Protection (IPP) and receipt of the order is seen as a further validation of the purchase of this business.The VariSec technology is a trade secret that is now owned by YPB and can be customised or individualised to suit different government's uses and specifications.YPB CEO and Executive Chairman John Houston commented: "We are building momentum in government document security as evidenced by these orders in recent weeks. As previously stated this is an excellent opportunity for YPB to gain increased exposure to government agencies for our entire suite of anti-counterfeiting solutions. We are continuing to develop products that will assist governments and businesses and these recent deals for VariSec are a great advertisement for us that should lead to wider acceptance of our solutions."
