A New Approach
Despite the popularity and widespread use of many different types of computer security products, more than 10 million Americans were victims of identity fraud in 2008, an increase from 2007 by over 20%. It’s time for a fresh approach. Identity Finder introduces a new philosophy to preventing identity theft. If history has taught us anything, it is that hackers, viruses, malware, and others will always find a way onto our systems. Therefore, rather than trying to keep the bad guys out, updating signatures on a daily or hourly basis and trying to constantly stay one step ahead of legions of attackers - Identity Finder goes to the source to eliminate or protect insecure information – leaving nothing for identity thieves to steal.
Comprehensive Identity Theft Prevention Technology
Most people are unaware of the amount of sensitive information stored on their computer or the many locations it is saved. Identity Finder automates the discovery process by using its proprietary AnyFind technology to intelligently and automatically locate social security numbers, credit card numbers, bank accounts, passwords, driver’s licenses, dates of birth, and other private information that can be used to commit identity fraud. By searching through files, e-mail, web browsers and system areas, Identity Finder searches wide and deep to uncover the information that puts you at risk. From a password that was e-mailed in clear text, to a credit card number that was sent via instant messenger, to a social security number saved in a web browser session, Identity Finder will find and validate the information before clearly showing you the location it was found, the sensitive data itself, and the complete context surrounding the identity match.

Advanced Search and Secure Capabilities
While finding sensitive information is a critical first step, you also need a comprehensive set of tools to protect that information. Identity Finder provides these tools and makes it simple to permanently shred, scrub clean, securely encrypt, or safely quarantine anything found during the search. By using the Results Wizard or Advanced Interface, you can quickly identity those items at risk, select an appropriate action to remove or protect the information and execute it with a single click. In addition to acting on search results, Identity Finder provides a wide range of tools to protect passwords, secure files inside encrypted file vaults, shred files and folders, and clean up and secure web browsers.
