When moving items securely in a chain-of-custody, you are following a time honoured tradition dating back to the 13th century, sealing sensitive information and valuable items in a way that provides an indication that somebody has opened or interfered with your consignment.
Tamper Evident vs a Padlock
If you need to secure items in transit, you might think twice next time before using a padlock. The point to the chain-of-custody is that you and the receiver know somebody has accessed your sensitive items. The trouble with using a padlock is that it can be picked, opened and closed again without showing any evidence of access. Sensitive letters and papers could be read, unnoticeable amounts of money could be removed from a till drawer, it can affect yours and many organisations around the world and, as a fact, it still does today when using untraceable lock and key solutions.
Versapak have been manufacturing secure, tamper evident storage and transport products since 1973. Our Security Solutions and Medical Solutions offer key industries the ability to store and move their items in a tamper evident manner, so that if a sensitive solicitor document is read, or blood as been accidentally or maliciously tainted, you would know. That is the Tamper Evident security that offers something, that cannot be replaced by the biggest locks or the toughest safe; it offers you peace-of-mind that nobody other than 'yourself' and 'the Receiver' has had access.
