Identity theft and fraud have hit an all-time high. There have been countless incidents in workplaces where employees receive calls, email or text notifications from a business congratulating them for the purchase of a new car or condo they never bought. In other cases, people find insurance policies in their name asking for a claim that they were not even aware of. Such incidents occur because of poor security infrastructure and a dearth of identity theft and fraud preparedness, as most companies lack the time and internal resources dedicated to identity management. Businesses of all sizes are looking for a partner that can understand the nuances of identity management and help protect their employees’ personal information.

This is precisely where Guard Well Identity Theft Solutions steps in with its unique approach to employee identity protection, offering professional consulting for employers trying to mitigate the productivity loss of their employees - or employee’s family members -when they are victims of identity theft. To achieve this feat, the company leverages full resolution for the household, cutting-edge identity monitoring tools and proprietary API implementation technology that provides turn-key program activation. “We specifically partner with employers to distribute our solutions via their benefit offerings,” states Allan Hilsinger, founder and CEO of Guard Well.

Guard Well offers employer paid and employee paid solutions, both which directly improve the company bottom line as well as protect employee PII. Every program automatically includes full resolution for the employee and household. When an employee - or a household family member - falls victim to identity theft, Guard Well takes charge and fixes the damages, allowing the employee to remain focused on work duties.

Guard Well’s Premium Monitoring Program features single bureau credit report, score and monitoring, SSN trace, court records, lost wallet, and real-time credit authorization. It also features ‘CyberAgent,’ a tool that monitors billions of databases in the dark web where PII is bought and sold. The Elite Monitoring Program offers additional tools, such as three bureau credit reports, score and monitoring, sex offender reports, adult/child social media, non-credit/ payday loans, and monitors up to 10 children in the household.

We specifically partner with employers to distribute our solutions through their voluntary benefits’ offerings

Elite also allows the employee to monitor up to 10 bank accounts, credit cards, email addresses, phone numbers, and insurance policy numbers. Every Guard Well program also provides free access to the Guard Well mobile app and a $1 million insurance reimbursement policy for the employee and their household. The company has a dynamic customer support service team available 24/7/365 to answer every query promptly. It is clear that Guard Well’s robust solutions are in demand, which is reflected by employee participation and retention rates. “We have seen participation rates as high as 35 percent and are proud of our 100 percent employer retention rate,” states Hilsinger.

For Guard Well’s team, ease of administration is the focal point. Therefore, they are always aiming to make their programs simple to implement and manage for both employers and their employees. By utilizing proprietary API implementation technology, the election and enrollment process is extremely simple and streamlined, which is a big reason why Hilsinger and his team expect to double in size this year while retaining every employer they protect.

With its impressive record and history of success, Guard Well certainly has made great strides in helping clients in all aspects of employee identity protection. One of the many success stories scripted by the company is of an employee who, when enrolled in one of Guard Well’s monitoring solutions, was immediately alerted about an anonymous person using their PII in Texas. The offender was using the victim’s identity to gain employmentwhile also committing the crime of tax evasion. Guard Well’s team of experts were able to stop the illegal activity, relieve the victim of an unpaid income tax bill, and restore their good name and credit. The victim only spent about an hour on the phone with Guard Well’s fraud resolution team as opposed to spending days, perhaps weeks trying to unravel the mess alone.

With a motive to grow and protect as many Americans as possible, Guard Well is also forging partnerships with large insurance companies, financial institutions and member-based organizations that are embedding their policy lines with Guard Well’s solutions. At the same time the employee benefit side of Guard Well is literally exploding, “By partnering withpowerful employee benefits brokers with access to millions of American households, we are on a path to take our clientbase to great heights in the coming years,” concludes Hilsinger. “And let’s face it, it’s been a lot of fun. Protecting people and their families is quite a rewarding way to spend your career and I wouldn’t change it for the world.”
