ATLANTA, Ga., May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDology, a leader in multi-layered identity verification and fraud prevention solutions for the customer-not-present environment, has been recognized as the number one Technology Solutions Provider in the 2015 Technology Association of Georgia, Southeastern Software Association Impact Awards.
The Technology Solutions Provider award is reserved every year for organizations that have developed technology solutions or tools that help their customers either reduce costs or enhance service quality by improving operating efficiencies. IDology was nominated under this category for their ExpectID® Dark Web Defense Solution which is an important enhancement to their robust identity verification and fraud prevention platform.
"We are honored to have won this year's TAG SSA Impact Award for the leading Technology Solutions Provider category," said John Dancu, CEO of IDology. "Consumer information is becoming increasingly compromised. From widespread data breaches to identity theft and other fraud schemes, criminals are targeting organizations of all shapes and sizes. So, what happens to all of this compromised consumer information once it has been stolen? In many cases, fraudsters turn to the "dark web" to trade and sell this valuable data. IDology's Dark Web Defense Solution enables organizations to monitor access points and software commonly used by fraudsters in the dark web such as tor, malware and botnets. They can then utilize this zero-day dark web attack intelligence to prevent fraud while also driving legitimate customer acquisition through seamless multi-layered verification."
From over 90 nominations, the 2015 TAG SSA Impact award winners were chosen based on three criteria: (1) business impact; (2) complexity of the solution, and; (3) creativity of the solution.

"We are extremely thankful to the TAG Southeastern Software Association for this award and for all of the support they provide the technology community here in Georgia," continued Dancu. "At IDology, we definitely understand the importance of driving innovation as well as collaboration throughout the entire industry."
"The Southeast has a vibrant and growing software industry and Georgia is the central hub. The nominees, applicants and finalists for this year's awards are excellent examples of software innovation and leadership happening right here in Georgia," said Christin Conrado, Chair of the TAG Southeastern Software Association. "TAG SSA is proud to be a catalyst that is fostering the growth of the software industry here in Georgia and throughout the Southeast region."
