ADDISON, Texas, Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Authentix®, a leading global authentication and information services company, announces Authentix Vigilant™, an end-to-end authentication offering for national governments who want to combat the problems of smuggling, diversion and adulteration of refined fuels in their country. Vigilant is an integrated system of chemical markers and analyzers, a powerful information system and robust services that in combination, create a solution to fuel fraud problems.
Vigilant is the result of more than 20 years of experience in developing, implementing and supporting fuel marking programs by Authentix. The company established secure diesel and petrol marking methods, robust testing standards and trusted custody processes that allow government enforcement actions to definitively reduce illicit fuel market activity.
"A Vigilant fuel marking program helps government ministers improve fuel quality for their citizens and protect the environment by removing low quality fuel substitutes from the marketplace," said Kevin McKenna, President of Authentix's Oil and Gas Division. "When legitimate fuel replaces illicit fuel in the supply chain, excise and other tax revenue collection increases without raising tax rates, readily paying for the program and funding other government activities."
Authentix has partnered with governments all over the globe deploying successful fuel marking programs, protecting over 1.5 trillion liters of refined fuels. The Vigilant offering puts the company's historical core capabilities into an Internet of Things framework, aggregating the fuel marking program operations information along with external data into the Authentix Information System (AXIS®). AXIS includes analytical applications and reporting tools to present data-driven, actionable insights in support of the government's enforcement protocols.
Vigilant includes services to advise government personnel on the design of the fuel marking program, implementation services to streamline deployment and ongoing operational support to ensure success.
