MeadWestvaco Corporation of Richmond, Virginia, has launched a security solution that promotes open merchandising while protecting products against theft throughout the supply chain. The Intercept lock uses proprietary security technology from ProTeqt Technologies of Franklin, Massachusetts. It features a wireless-enabled lock placed on a product, such as in the micro USB port of a mobile phone. It disables the product’s functionality until the lock is deactivated during checkout. If the product is not legally purchased, thieves are left with a worthless product.
