DENVER, June 10, 2016 /CNW/ -- ID Watchdog, Inc. (TSX VENTURE: IDW) (PINKSHEETS: IDWAF) ("ID Watchdog" or the "Company"), a provider of consumer-facing identity theft protection and resolution services, has been named one of Javelin's 2016 Identity Protection Leaders in three different categories. ID Watchdog has been recognized for their achievements in the categories of Prevention, Detection, and Resolution. Javelin acknowledges leading direct-to-consumer providers and plans that offer the best consumer-facing prevention, detection, and resolution capabilities. Javelin examines the growth and transformation of the identity protection services industry and assesses market size, fraud trends, new partnership channels and consumer preferences for identity protection services plans.
The Prevention category examines 18 features that protect consumers from fraud across four main areas: credit access safeguards, security partnerships, account security measures, and identity theft education.
The Detection category evaluates vendors' plans against 34 monitoring features including six activity alerts. Detection covers the widest array of features, largely due to the variety of identifiers that can be monitored across credit reports and the black market.
The Resolution category assesses 19 key features, including mobile fraud reporting, ability to access resolution help (including Spanish and other language support, 24/7 availability, and more), lost wallet assistance, and specific fraud resolution assistance (fraud involving medical ID, income tax, and more).
"On behalf of ID Watchdog, I am thrilled to be recognized as leaders in these three categories," said Michael Greene, CEO of ID Watchdog. "No one can prevent identity theft, which is why it's important to continue making advances in fraud prevention, detection and resolution to ensure identities remain safe and secure."
