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 Atlanta-based CyberScrub® – 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 proprietary 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.
Key to the Guard Street™ solution is CyberScrub®. This easy to use software helps maintain privacy through the total and permanent erasure of the selected files on a consumer’s PC or laptop. It also provides erasure of USB devices. The CyberScrub® permanent erasure process is used by the US Department of Defense. It also erases your internet browsing history for privacy, security and speed purposes. For these reasons, the CyberScrub® software includes a scheduler for regular erasing.
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.
“Privacy and security are primary concerns for consumers, particularly when it comes to protecting their assets. Because files remain on a consumer’s hard drive, even after they have been deleted, permanent file erasure is tremendously important so personal data doesn’t get into the wrong hands if their computer is hacked into,” said Raj Deshpande, CEO of CyberScrub, LLC. “CyberScrub will give Guard Street users a secure and private way to permanently dispose of their data and online history.”
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 CyberScrub brings an essential line of defense through our program.”
CyberScrub® is owned by CyberScrub, LLC is based just outside of Atlanta, Georgia and offers consumers permanent erasure software for their PCs, laptops and USB devices. For additional information about their services, go to www.cyberscrub.com.
