Sontiq, an enterprise high-tech security and identity protection company, today announced that Javelin Strategy & Research has named IdentityForce as the Identity Protection Service Provider Award Winner for 2019. Javelin’s 12th Annual Identity Protection Service Provider Scorecard provides the industry’s most comprehensive market research and analysis of identity protection vendors. The 2019 scorecard evaluated 14 total vendors based on 116 evaluation criteria.

Sontiq’s IdentityForce emerged, not only as a leader in all three categories for its Prevention, Detection, and Resolution capabilities, but its evaluation criteria ranking earned the distinction of being “Best in Class.” According to the Javelin scorecard, “With a strong performance as a leader in all three categories, Sontiqs IdentityForce beat out a competitive field among premium direct-to-consumer products to rank at the top of this year’s scorecard. With a broad feature set encompassing traditional identity protection tools, broad monitoring capabilities, and emerging data-protection tools, the provider offers a well-rounded plan that performed well in prevention, detection, and resolution.”

Specifically, Javelin noted that Sontiq’s IdentityForce led the competitive landscape with the strongest direct-to-consumer product offering a broad feature set. One of these innovative capabilities include the fully refreshed user interface of the IdentityForce mobile app combined with the power of a key component of Sontiq’s Mobile Defense Suite™, Mobile Attack Control™. With Mobile Attack Control, IdentityForce mobile app users are alerted to a wide array of threats including rogue apps, spyware, unsecured Wi-Fi connections, and even fake or “spoof” networks.

“Javelin’s unique analysis of the Identity Protection industry is critical to helping consumers and businesses gain a comprehensive view of the value and impact being delivered to the market,” said Dale Dabbs, President and CEO of Sontiq. “Javelin’s latest recognition of Sontiq and the work we are doing to provide world-class identity and mobile threat solutions, specifically with the best-in-class positioning of our IdentityForce platform, is truly humbling. It further demonstrates how seriously we take protecting identities — from all avenues of prevention, detection, and resolution. Our team is fully committed to protecting what matters most for all those we serve.”
