About us

Since 1979 we have privately helped companies across the world produce and secure their documents. No customer is too small or too large for our capabilities.

“Tomorrow’s Security Solutions for Today’s Fraud”

International Security Products has a powerful vision of partnership. This vision is built on Value, Service, and Technology. The VALUE component helps our customers meet their key business objectives of cost control while providing security solutions to reduce fraud related losses. The SERVICE component demonstrates the commitment of ISP and its associates to provide customers with unparalleled support, information and solutions. The TECHNOLOGY component is built on years of successful security development and patents which deter unauthorized duplication of sensitive information or products of value. Our commitment to continued technological research and development assures our vision of “Partners in Success” with the most advanced and effective security technologies available in the marketplace.

Governments, businesses, colleges and universities are fighting a never ending battle to preserve the integrity and authenticity of their secure documents. The primary cause for the proliferation of document fraud is easy access to low cost digital computers, copiers and scanners. ISP was established to provide effective solutions through ongoing development of new and creative document security technologies. Our sister company, Verify First Technologies (VFT), has been issued nineteen U. S. and European patents and have numerous patents pending for additional anti-fraud technologies.

International Security Products (ISP) specializes in the development and production of technologies related to anti-fraud security solutions. The Company’s mission is to engineer effective security methodologies to protect original content from replications, forgery and counterfeiting. It is our belief that most covert technologies, if used alone, are easily defeated with today’s digital scanners or copiers. Too often the untrained person accepting the document overlooks the not so obvious, covert or passive security feature. We do however believe that unique covert technologies can be a powerful deterrent to stop both document and brand counterfeiting. Specifically, ISP has been the leader in developing anti-fraud security features by using the following criteria:


Working with ink manufacturers, paper manufacturers, print manufacturers, security agents, governments and end-users; ISP is involved in four major areas of the security industry.
