IDShield wins ID system praise


Identity monitoring, theft protection and restoration technology and services firm IDShield was recognized as a “Leader” in Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2018 Identity Protection Service Provider Scorecard in its Detection category.

The Detection category covers capabilities that help consumers identify active or emerging threats to their identities, such as credit, existing account and black-market monitoring. With the continually broadening array of data sources monitored by identity protection services, this category had the largest number of criteria. Javelin highlighted IDShield’s robust set of alerts for core monitoring services, which also integrate newer features such as existing account and social media monitoring.

“IDShield is honored to be recognized by Javelin for our leadership in fraud detection,” said Scott Grissom, SVP, Chief Product Officer. “Over the past year, we’ve seen a record number of data breaches that have the potential to devastate businesses and consumers alike. Now, more than ever, it is important for individuals to utilize the proper advanced tech and services to protect their identity and assets, especially in the digital world.”

This year, in addition to core features such as credit, existing account, and dark web monitoring, Javelin included features aimed at protecting minors from threats to their identity in the scorecard evaluation criteria. With no or minimal account history, minors’ identities offer blank slates for fraudsters, which can provide the foundation for long-term schemes that go undetected for years.
