VirtualArmour Initiates Proactive Personal Protection Analysis Across Entire Client Base in Response to Equifax Breach

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Premier Managed Services Provider, VirtualArmour International Inc. (the “Company”) (CSE:VAI) (Frankfurt:3V3), responded to the Equifax breach – one of the largest breaches of personal data ever reported in the United States – by initiating Personal Identity Protection Analysis for the executive leadership of its entire client base as part of its Managed Security Service.

/EIN News/ -- The comprehensive analysis provides intelligence on personal data within the Dark Web that could be used for malicious purposes or to jeopardize the reputation and brand of company leadership.

“The Equifax and SEC breaches have once again further escalated the issue of data management and security and focused a spotlight on the proper protection of sensitive personal data. We are in the business of defending company executives and their organizations from evolving cyber threats and feel that proactively initiating this analysis acts to further strengthen the overall security posture of every one of our clients,” said Andrew Douthwaite, VP of Managed Services at VirtualArmour. “The harsh reality is that the Equifax Breach is not an isolated incident and it won’t be the last attack on institutions that house personal and business data. As we have stated many times before, we believe the focus for organizations and their leaders must always be on maintaining robust prevention through diligent and proactive action.”

Comprehensive identity protection services will now be extended to all new and existing VirtualArmour clients.
