Concern over data privacy and cybercrime is reaching epidemic levels as it seems almost every week there is a headline story regarding a data breach in which millions of consumers have had their personal information compromised. Chicago-based Guard Street™ and Denver-based Tag and Return, LLC – two companies in the data privacy protection arena have – joined forces to offer consumers groundbreaking programs designed to keep their personal data secure from cyber criminals, fraudsters, hackers and big data marketers while they shop, bank, navigate the internet, manage documents, travel and live their lives.
Offered exclusively by Guard Street™, Guard Street’s all-new security platform delivers a uniquely holistic approach towards data privacy and security, underscored by the application of multiple proactive tools, rather than the reactive ‘ID theft protection’ programs that seek to provide help only after a problem has been detected.
A key to the Guard Street™ solution is the GadgetTrak® mobile device and laptop security service and Trak-n-Return™, an identity protected lost and found recovery service for consumer valuables. Both services are designed to help protect consumers’ data privacy while having their lost or stolen valuables returned. GadgetTrak® locates Android mobile devices, allows a consumer to back up their data and remotely wipe the device of their personal data. The security service takes pictures of the perpetrator and emails them along with the device location to the owner. Trak-n-Return™ provides anonymous luggage and ID tags and labels to help retrieve lost luggage, credit cards and other belongings.
Guard Street’s privacy platform and various packages provide consumers with software, products and services from the top protection companies at a great value with monthly and annual pricing options.
“Anonymity and security are primary concerns for consumers, particularly when it comes to protecting their assets,” said Aaron Hansen, President of Tag and Return, LLC, the manufacturer of Trak-n-Return™ and a distributor of GadgetTrak®. “GadgetTrak and Trak-n-Return will give Guard Street users a secure and private way to conduct their lives locally and while they travel.”
According to Vince Mazza, CEO of Guard Street, “We can’t control criminals or how big and small retailers protect data they may have about us, but we can take control of our privacy through protective measures. While no protection is 100% when dealing with criminals, consumers can drastically reduce the chances of being hacked, tracked or have their data stolen. We believe the GadgetTrak and Trak-n-Return services bring an essential line of defense through our program.”
