FRAMINGHAM, Mass., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- , a leading provider of identity protection solutions for businesses and consumers, was awarded "Best-in-Class" for Fraud Alert Hybrid Services in a new survey released by Javelin Strategy & Research -- the leading independent provider of quantitative and qualitative research focused exclusively on financial services topics. The survey assesses the identity fraud protection services of 20 vendors, using a scorecard which examines features and benefits available to consumers.
The evaluated fraud alert hybrid services in the categories of services, resolution and support -- noting that Identity Force provides "far-reaching protection for consumers, in their category."
"Given the tremendous growth in the identity monitoring service industry, we are thrilled that our consumer identity protection services have received such a resounding affirmation from an organization as well respected as Javelin," said Identity Force CEO Steve Bearak. "We take the same full service approach in creating products and programs for every industry we serve -- from healthcare and government, to small business and higher education."
The Javelin study demonstrated a need for proactive identity protection from businesses as it found that 37 percent of fraud victims surveyed avoid certain merchants, while 23 percent switched their primary bank or credit union and 22 percent switched credit card companies. To address this trend, Identity Force recently launched a Merchant Protection Program, designed as an affordable identity theft prevention solution that identifies small businesses adhering to strict standards of identity protection for their business, customers and employees with a "certified business" seal.
