In a digital world, data security and identity protection are increasingly connected
San Francisco, CA, December 27, 2017: Javelin Strategy & Research today announced its 10th annual Identity Protection Service Providers awards. The scorecard explores changes in the identity protection landscape and identifies the top vendors in the identity protection space based on the Prevention, Detection and ResolutionTM capabilities of their direct-to-consumer products.
IdentityForce was recognized as the overall winner among 18 identity protection service providers evaluated in 2017. With a robust, digital-oriented identity protection platform, IdentityForce leads a competitive pack of providers. IdentityForce distinguished itself by integrating data security tools to help subscribers secure their broader digital life.
“Online crooks can take advantage of victims’ overreliance on digital channels — compromising their accounts remotely, hacking mobile software, and enacting social engineering schemes over email, text message, and phone,” said Al Pascual, Research Director, Fraud & Security at Javelin Strategy & Research. “This puts the onus on identity protection providers to fill the gaps with capabilities that are well aligned with the digital expectations of consumers and the risks they face as everyday visitors to digital businesses.”
