For Immediate Release:
CHICAGO, IL/SUNRISE, FL (May 21, 2018) – With the largest data breaches in history announced recently including with a large credit bureau and a large email service impacting billions of people alone, concern over data privacy, cybercrime and identity theft is reaching epidemic levels. It seems almost every week there is a headline story regarding a data breach in which millions of consumers have had their personal information compromised. To address this large and fast growing issue, Chicago-based Guard Street™ and Sunrise-headquartered Legal Club have joined forces to offer consumers groundbreaking programs designed to keep their personal data secure from cyber criminals, fraudsters and hackers while they shop, bank, browse and live their daily lives.
Legal Club’s Sure Path ID programs now include not only preventative identity monitoring, fully managed restoration and $1 million in identity theft insurance, but also Guard Street’s proactive privacy plus software and protection tools. Guard Street ensures that customers can rest assured knowing that others will not be able to see their precious personal information online. This security extends to personal data such as credit card numbers, account numbers, passcodes, websites and even important documents that may need to be accessed. This program helps consumers avoid problems, unlike traditional reactive ‘ID theft protection’ programs that seek to provide help only after a problem has been detected.
The Guard Street™ service may be used world-wide and even includes a virtual private network, a password manager and a Swiss-secure email account to address one of the top vehicles hackers use to cause havoc. It also includes a secure data vault to store documents like wills, tax records, medical records and contracts.
The Legal Club – Guard Street™ alliance comes at a pressing time, with a world-wide need for such an extensive protection service. This partnership also coincides with the need for consumers to communicate and provide documents securely with their attorneys and accountants and offers clear competitive advantages over traditional identity theft programs.
“We are thrilled to be working with Guard Street™ on this new venture to offer our clients and their customers a proactive privacy and identity protection service that will work for them at home as well as while they are traveling,” said William Case, Legal Club’s Chief Executive Officer.
According to Vince Mazza, CEO of Guard Street: “Customers can rest assured knowing that they have secure access to their precious data and can send email securely and browse wherever there is unsecure Wi-Fi knowing they are protected. We can’t control criminals or how big and small retailers protect data they may have about us, but we can take control of our privacy through protective measures. We’re excited to work with a company of the caliber of Legal Club, who shares our commitment to providing world-class products and services.”
