May 27, 2014

ENGLEWOOD, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Identity Stronghold founder, CEO and nationally acclaimed security expert Walt Augustinowicz has been named one of Business Observer’s ‘Entrepreneurs of the Year’ for 2014, the company announced today.

“It’s an honor to be recognized amongst such accomplished peers, and I look forward to future success with a dedicated team and growing list of satisfied customers,” said Walt Augustinowicz, founder and CEO of Identity Stronghold.

In a recent Inside Edition story Augustinowicz demonstrated yet again that unshielded Radio Frequency Identity (RFID) chips pose a personal security threat, specifically those embedded in credit, debit, identity and access cards.

Elevating this emerging issue has increased demand for the product by 142% since 2011, from $3.3 million to $8 million last year, and Augustinowicz projects the firm will surpass $10 million in 2014 sales. The firm has 18 employees, plus another 30 who work on order fulfillment on a part-time basis.
