SAN ANTONIO (6/7/13)--Harland Clarke Corp., a provider of marketing services, payment and security solutions to credit unions and banks has partnered with NXG Strategies to offer a new identity-fraud-protection program to financial institutions.
Harland Clarke is a CUNA Strategic Services provider.
Fraud-Defender was developed by NXG to assist consumers in combating identity theft. The suite of solutions delivers managed identity fraud research, remediation and recovery benefits, supported by current identity fraud detection technologies.
"Fraud-Defender is easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to use. These are all critical components of a successful identity fraud protection program," said Matt Wier, Harland Clarke vice president of marketing and product management. "Fraud-Defender also employs stringent data security, further reinforcing its viability as a preferred service."
Many credit unions are looking beyond simple subscription model programs in favor of integrating fraud service benefits within accounts. Although identity fraud is commonly considered a consumer issue, it also is a threat to businesses, said the company. The alliance means credit unions can also offer their small business members tools for detecting, preventing and mitigating identity fraud and data breaches.
"We are committed to helping our clients reach their growth goals and more effectively serve their account holders. Providing a market-leading identity theft protection service supports this commitment," said Rick Ebrey, Harland Clarke executive vice president for payment solutions.
