EZShield, the best-in-class digital Identity Theft Protection and Mobile Cybersecurity provider that pioneered fraud restoration, and IdentityForce, the #1 consumer-rated service that pioneered personal information security, announced that their brands have aligned under a new company: Sontiq.
Sontiq will unite both companies into one industry leader that can meet the evolving identity security needs of all of the audiences both companies serve – from consumers and partners to businesses of all sizes.
Both EZShield’s and IdentityForce’s best-in-class products will continue to evolve with up-to-the-minute capabilities for a world that is increasingly connected and vulnerable to fraud.
The new parent company name, Sontiq, is derived from the Latin word “sonticus” meaning serious or critical. Sontiq’s Intelligent Identity Security solutions focus on protecting every aspect of an identity in today’s fast-paced digital world where security incidents, cyber threats, and data breaches are the norm.
Protecting what matters most – identity – through award-winning customer service and ironclad protection is at the core of what Sontiq will deliver to its customers.
“Sontiq is a natural evolution for our two companies, EZShield and IdentityForce,” said Dale Dabbs, President and CEO of Sontiq.
“Today, we are excited to launch as Sontiq and we are committed to defending consumers and businesses against cyber threats and identity thieves by providing the latest in product innovation and service excellence. Our smarter, stronger, and more integrated approach is built for the speed and volume of modern information sharing an approach we call Sontiq’s Intelligent Identity Security.”
“Uniting our brands under Sontiq speaks to the evolution of the company and the breadth of the markets we are able to serve,” said Daniel L. Black, Managing Partner at Wicks, majority owner of Sontiq.
“We have successfully introduced a number of new products and services during the past two years to outpace the rapidly changing ID theft environment. The Sontiq name acknowledges the transformation in the business that we envisioned when we initially invested in EZShield, and then expanded further with the IdentityForce acquisition.
“Sontiq preserves two great and trusted brands that are highly recognized and respected by millions of consumers, financial institutions, small and large enterprises and federal, state and local governments. We are excited to continue on the path of growing our business, innovating ahead of the market, and serving our clients with passion.”
