Sontiq, an enterprise high-tech security and identity protection company, announced an updated user interface for its IdentityForce Mobile App, which also includes comprehensive mobile device scanning and related alerts to help ensure the safety and security of individuals and families.
By applying a key component of its Mobile Defense Suite to the IdentityForce Mobile App, consumers now can take advantage of a new feature, Mobile Attack Control, which monitors and alerts IdentityForce Mobile App users to a wide array of threats including rogue apps, spyware, unsecured Wi-Fi connections, and even recognizes fake or “spoof” networks.
“We take protecting identities seriously. Infusing IdentityForce’s top-rated identity theft protection capabilities with comprehensive mobile cybersecurity features through Mobile Attack Control, is the next evolution of mitigating threats to our members’ digital footprints,” explained Angela Murphy, Chief Operating Officer at Sontiq.
“In combination with this significant enhancement, which we are providing to IdentityForce members at zero cost, we have also updated the mobile app’s user interface with a more modernized experience for faster pinpointing of key personal protection information and alerts.”
With the ubiquity of mobile devices being used for both personal and business reasons, the number of mobile phone takeovers has increased by 79 percent year-over-year.
