Starting in July, Guardian will provide all of its new alarm customers with identity theft protection at no additional charge. The new program includes identity monitoring of more than 650 billion data points and more than 1,000 databases, personal identity risk scores, monthly identity reports, identity restoration services, and insurance coverage for up to $25,000. As an added benefit, all Guardian customers can upgrade to an enhanced level of identity protection by paying an incremental monthly fee.
“We are thrilled to be the first alarm company to embed identity theft protection into its basic service offering and help our customers protect themselves against this epidemic,” said Joe Colosimo, president of Guardian Protection Services. “We are equally pleased to select Ocenture as our partner. It has a superior product and understands the alarm industry better than any other company we met during our exhaustive search.”
“Teaming up with a 60-year, market leader like Guardian Protection Services offers Ocenture a tremendous opportunity,” said Adrian Sedlin, chief executive officer of Ocenture. “Guardian is a true innovator, recognizing that to grow RMR, increase market share, and reduce attrition entails evolving beyond doors and windows and providing 360-degree security solutions like ID theft protection.”
