ID Agent’s Dark Web ID Earns NexGen Technology Solution Award, Matt Solomon’s Presentation Honored with Tech Talk Award at The Channel Company NexGen 2017 Expo


WASHINGTON, D.C. – Dec. 19, 2017 – ID Agent, provider of Dark web monitoring and identity theft protection solutions, is a winner of two XCellence Awards at The Channel Company hosted NexGen 2017 Technology Expo, which took place on Monday, December 11 – Wednesday, December 13, 2017 in Los Angeles, Calif. ID Agent’s Dark Web ID took top honors with the NexGen Technology Solution Award. The company’s featured presentation, “Stolen Credentials on the Dark Web: How it Affects SMBs,” by Matt Solomon, Director, Sales at ID Agent, won the XCellence Award for Tech Talk Presentation.

“ID Agent continues to demonstrate its leadership providing Dark Web-based intelligence specifically designed to help managed service and IT solution providers better protect their clients,” said Kevin Lancaster, CEO of ID Agent. “We were honored to even be nominated alongside technology leaders including FireEye, Webroot and Datto. Winning these awards furthers our commitment to our channel model and speaks volumes about the NexGen attendees who are a step ahead of the pack in actively seeking out solutions that protect their clients.”

ID Agent’s Dark Web ID combines human and sophisticated Dark Web intelligence with search capabilities to identify, analyze and proactively monitor for an organization’s compromised or stolen employee and customer data. Dark Web ID is quickly becoming the industry standard among IT service providers, MSPs and MSSPs globally. The largest private and public sector organizations globally rely on Dark Web ID to provide actionable stolen credential data to make informed decisions.

ID Agent is not only providing solutions but educating the channel on the threats of the Dark Web. Matt Solomon shared compelling statistics, explained the path from exposure to breach, and what MSPs can do to protect SMB customers from theft as a result of exposure. Digital credentials such as usernames and passwords are used by customers to connect to their critical business applications, as well as online services. Unfortunately, criminals know this — and that’s why these are among the most valuable assets on the Dark Web. Because criminals are sophisticated in their attacks, many companies are unaware of data loss until they have been informed by law enforcement.

“The NexGen 2017 Technology Expo is designed for solution providers on the cutting edge of the channel,” said Lisa MacKenzie, Partner/Executive Vice President at The Channel Company. “NexGen XCellence Award winners are leading the way in innovation, ultimately helping SMBs to drive more revenue and future profits. Congratulations to ID Agent for its technological advances with Dark Web ID as well as its award-winning presentation, educating the channel community on the important topic of protecting SMB customers from data theft.”

NexGen attendees consistently find innovative technologies, trusted partners and advanced strategies that transform their value proposition into a next-generation service provider. For more information on the event, visit: http://www.thechannelco.com/events/ngc17/about.
