HOUSTON, April 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Newchip, one of the top investment platforms in the world, has a track record of helping companies get funded with over $20M+ in investments into its companies in 2018 alone. This week, they accepted Consumer Affinity, Inc. into their online accelerator program. Participation in Newchip's Accelerator program is limited. Out of 600 applicants, only 50 companies were selected for the April cohort.
Consumer Affinity is an all-in-one service helping protect user information with security tools while acting as a resource for what needs to be known about proper information security. "We are very excited to have Consumer Affinity join the Newchip family," remarked Ryan Rafols, CEO of Newchip. "The team impressed us from the start—we are eager to see how they take Consumer Affinity to the next level. They have a unique perspective on their market and what they've built so far shows great promise."
Launched in late 2018 by founder Steve R. Smith, Consumer Affinity entertains, educates, and protects consumers with a social platform designed to provide a seamless and unified information security solution. Consumer Affinity solves problems related to scams, fraud, and identity theft by combining consumer-oriented awareness training with valuable tools that includes credit monitoring, a password manager, backup/recovery solution, VPN, and a hardware token.
"Cybercriminals continue to find new and innovative ways to target innocent people. The number of victims and amount of money stolen, billions of dollars, is staggering – the problem gets worse year after year" says Consumer Affinity's Founder and CEO, Steve R. Smith. "Consumer Affinity aims to reverse the trend of victimization by creating an informed, aware, and enabled public. We feel like people need to be educated instead of just being handed software to use."
The company looks forward to its first social software release targeted for late April 2019. With newsfeeds, discussion forums, blogs, and videos – the platform will provide multiple ways for users to interact with a variety of content types. The Premium service is expected in Q3 2019.
"Everyone needs access to something like this – we security professionals usually focus on enterprise security but I'm glad to see a company out here in Cyberspace focusing time and effort on everyday problems people in our modern society face," says David Nestor, Director of Security Solutions at Aporeto.
