Judges Describe Mobile Defense Suite as “Best-in-Class Digital
Security Product” offering “Extraordinary Performance,” and “Invaluable
Protection”

NOTTINGHAM, Md.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/awards?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#awardslt;/agt;–EZShield,
a portfolio company of The
Wicks Group
(“Wicks”) and the leader in digital identity protection
and resolution, today announced it has won a Gold Stevie® Award in the
New Product of the Year Category for the leading Identity & Access
Security Solution. The launch of EZShield’s Mobile
Defense Suite
™ in November 2018 marked a milestone for the company.
It is the industry’s first pure-play identity theft protection company
to pair its solutions with award-winning mobile cybersecurity.

“To win a prestigious Gold Stevie Award humbles our dedicated team,
while also further fueling our passion for innovation,” said Dale
Dabbs
, President and CEO of EZShield. “As we examined the evolving
needs of our partners and customers, we identified a need in the market
to empower individuals and organizations to take control and safeguard
the entire digital footprint for any business and any individual.”

More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in
virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a
wide range of categories. EZShield’s Mobile Defense Suite stood out for
its ability to mitigate threats targeting the individual digital
footprint and the enterprise. Here are the key features and benefits:

  • Mobile Attack Control™ | Includes access to EZShield’s
    award-winning mobile app
    , performs comprehensive mobile device
    scanning and alerts individuals if their device has been compromised.
    It looks for a wide array of threats including rogue apps, spyware,
    unsecured Wi-Fi connections, and even recognizes fake or “spoof”
    networks.
  • Mobile Attack View™ | An enterprise
    dashboard for IT and InfoSec teams providing a single-source view of
    any mobile threats from devices that are connected to the company’s
    system. This ability to recognize vulnerabilities in real-time gives
    technology leaders the advantage of stepping in to take action before
    a data breach occurs, which can save an organization anywhere up to
    $3.86 Million, which is the estimated average cost of a security
    incident.
  • Mobile Attack Recovery™ | Provides users with steps for
    remediation and white-glove restoration if an incident does lead to an
    identity theft incident.

Additionally, EZShield’s Mobile Defense Suite is also a core component
of its recently launched, and now
generally available
, Small
Business Suite
.
