IdentityForce Selected to Provide Identity Theft Protection Services to U.S. Government
August 29th, 2006
IdentityForce, Inc., provider of powerful, complete and worry-free identity theft solutions for consumers, businesses and organizations, announced today that it has been selected, through its parent company Bearak Reports, by the General Services Administration to be awarded a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) to provide identity theft protection services to U.S. Government agencies. IdentityForce is headquartered in Framingham, Massachusetts and delivers solutions to customers throughout North America.
“This is a significant milestone for IdentityForce and truly validates our standing as a leader in the identity theft protection industry,” said Judy Leary, president of IdentityForce. “Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States, and we applaud the GSA for developing a process which will enable agencies to respond immediately to data breaches and protect consumers, employees and others at high risk.”
IdentityForce RAPID RESPONSE(TM) solutions are designed for immediate deployment in the event of data breaches. Components include credit report monitoring, credit reports and scores, identity theft insurance and fraud resolution services. Further, IdentityForce is the only firm on the BPA that also provides Social Security Number Monitoring, Credit Card Monitoring and Public Record Directory Monitoring & Deletion. These three additional elements provide a proactive and preemptive frontline defense that notifies consumers if anyone is attempting to steal his/her identity, and is a more effective response to data breaches than only providing credit report monitoring.
The GSA issued the Credit Monitoring Blanket Purchase Agreement on August 14, 2006, shortly after the Veteran’s Administration experienced one of the largest data breaches on record.
Federal Agencies that experience a data breach can select IdentityForce as a pre-approved vendor to provide credit monitoring and other identity theft prevention solutions that will protect individuals whose personal information has been compromised. IdentityForce will immediately execute a planned response directly matched to the risk level of the exposure. The BPA contract will be in effect for five years.
For nearly 40 years, IdentityForce, Inc. has provided best-in-class, highly scalable, award-winning identity theft, privacy and credit protection solutions to consumers, businesses, and government agencies. A pioneer of identity protection, IdentityForce’s innovation and customer-centric approach has made the company a trusted partner for both organizations and individuals. IdentityForce also provides custom-tailored programs to organizations enabling them to build closer relationships and additional revenue streams. In 2015, the U.S. government awarded IdentityForce elite Tier One status as an approved provider of identity protection services for data breaches affecting over 21.5 million people. IdentityForce is the only identity protection provider awarded the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal.
