Your strategic partner in the fight against four distinct threats to the high-technology industry.

Gray marketing. Counterfeiting. Service and Warranty Abuse. Digital IP protection. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that intellectual property (IP) threats cost domestic companies more than $250 billion per year in lost revenues. Add to that the loss of approximately 750,000 jobs, and it is clear that more needs to be done to protect companies from these threats. To that end, AGMA, a non-profit organization and the largest group solely focused on IP protection in the high-tech industry, has identified four distinct areas of focus that must be closely guarded in order for the high-tech industry to thrive and contribute to economic prosperity, innovation and security. Join us.
