BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EZShield, a pioneer in identity fraud management solutions, today announced that it has received top honors in Javelin Strategy & Research’s 2013 Identity Protection Services Scorecard winning the ‘Best in Class,’ ‘Best in Prevention,’ and tied for ‘Best in Resolution’ categories. The multiple recognitions for EZShield reflect the company’s commitment to offering leading identity fraud management services to its partners, and its excellence in service quality and capabilities.
“This industry recognition further validates EZShield’s commitment to providing the highest standard in fraud and identity protection to our trusted partners,” said Dale Dabbs, CEO at EZShield. “As the nature of fraud trends is ever-changing, we look forward to continuing to be a trusted resource to help our partners achieve their goals and help customers avoid the perils of identity fraud and ID theft.”
In its seventh annual report, Javelin analyzed the issues affecting consumer adoption of identity protection services (IDPS) and the means by which service providers can maximize their share of an increasingly consolidated market. The report focused primarily on which providers offer the best consumer-facing prevention, detection and resolution capabilities and other market insights.
According to Javelin, “EZShield wins Best in Class with impressive prevention, detection and resolution capabilities…EZShield positioned itself as a market leader, performing the best in Prevention and tying in the Resolution category in 2013.” In addition, EZShield was also awarded a “Top 5” ranking in the 2013 Detection category.
Another important conclusion from this year’s Javelin report was that the trend continues for consumers to look to their financial institution (FI) for identity fraud protection solutions. Javelin reports that consumers are more likely to purchase identity theft protection services from their (FI) over an independent identity theft protection company.
“As a trusted partner to more than 5,700 financial institutions across North America, Deluxe partners with EZShield to provide state-of-the-art identity theft and fraud protection to our clients and their customers,” said Nick Buri, Director of Product Management at Deluxe Corporation. “We congratulate EZShield on these industry recognitions, which further demonstrate the company’s commitment to its partner community and the millions of customers it helps protect each year.”
