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

May 7th, 2019

2019 Gold Stevie AwardEZShield, 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.
