We provide innovative software and data monitoring and analytics solutions that help consumers manage financial and personal risks associated with the proliferation of their personal data in the virtual and financial world. Under our Identity Guard® brand and other brands that comprise our Personal Information Services segment, we have helped consumers monitor, manage and protect against the risks associated with their identities and personal information for more than twenty years. We offer identity theft and privacy protection as well as credit monitoring services for consumers to understand, monitor, manage and protect their personal information and privacy. Under our Identity Guard® and Identity Guard® with Watson™ products, we help protect consumers against the risks associated with the inappropriate exposure of their personal information that can result in fraudulent use or reputation damage. Identity Guard® is offered through large and small organizations as an embedded product for either its employees or consumers, as well as directly to consumers through our direct marketing efforts. In 2017, we expanded our suite of Identity Guard® and Identity Guard® with Watson™ products. Identity Guard® with Watson™ offers robust early detection of potential risks, stretching beyond credit-centric risks to include online privacy risks, and provides personalized threat alerts with actionable steps to help keep our customers' information private from the earliest stage possible. We believe that our suite of products and services offer consumers the most proactive and comprehensive identity theft monitoring and online privacy services available on the market today.
We have ongoing operations in one other segment, Insurance and Other Consumer Services. As part of our strategy to have a singular focus on our Personal Information Services segment, we recently sold: 1) the business comprising our Bail Bonds Industry Solutions segment in January 2017; 2) our Habits at Work business, the results of which are recorded in our Personal Information Services segment, in June 2017; and 3) the business comprising our Pet Health Monitoring segment in July 2017.
