Supporting Quote:

-Todd Feinman, CEO of Identity Finder, said: "Hackers and identity thieves continue to employ more sophisticated methods to gain access to private information for personal gain. Identity Finder 5.0 helps organizations and individuals locate and secure old, forgotten sensitive information. Typical hard drives can hold gigabytes of information, and knowing exactly where social security numbers, birth dates, credit card numbers and other confidential information may be lurking is an insurmountable task for any one person. Identity Finder uses advanced algorithms to locate this kind of information, and then ensures that it is removed or secured."

Identity Finder 5.0 will be generally available in early March at www.identityfinder.com. Existing users of Identity Finder may leverage the new auto-update feature to easily update current versions of Identity Finder.
