MADISON, Wis. (March 6, 2012)
BizFilings, a leader in online incorporation services, announced today it has partnered with INVISUS and iDefend Business , the industry’s first-of-its-kind business identity theft protection service. The alliance will provide discounted business identity theft protection services to BizFilings’ customers, and BizFilings special offers to iDefend Business clients. BizFilings is a part of Wolters Kluwer Corporate Legal Services.
“In 2010, small businesses lost about $8 billion to fraud,” stated James Harrison, INVISUS CEO. “Starting and running a business can be daunting for first-time and even veteran entrepreneurs. Unfortunately, protecting both personal and business assets against business identity theft can often be an afterthought. This lack of protection makes small business owners and their entities preferred targets to fraudulent activities.”
With this partnership, current and aspiring entrepreneurs now will have access to a broader offering of services, easily and readily available in one location. The services provided by BizFilings and iDefend Business can help ensure entrepreneurs peace of mind so that they can focus on their day-to-day business.
Karen Kobelski, general manager of BizFilings, echoes Harrison’s sentiments, adding that “Our partnership with iDefend Business is a natural fit. BizFilings helps small-business owners protect their personal assets through incorporation and ongoing entity and compliance monitoring, and iDefend Business safeguards small businesses and their owners by offering essential identity theft and fraud protection services. We’re excited to partner with iDefend Business and to introduce our clients to another valuable resource.”
