Iris® Powered by Generali

At Iris® Powered by Generali, it’s not really about us. It’s about how identity theft and cybercrime have become a reality for too many. It’s about making a person feel whole again, when despite their best efforts, they’ve still become a victim. It’s about understanding that many companies do what we do – just not like we do.

Iris is a B2B2C global identity and cyber protection company owned by the 190-year-old multinational insurance company, Generali, offering always-available identity resolution experts (yes, real people available 24/7/365) and tech-forward solutions that uncomplicate the protection process. We opened our first Washington, DC office in 1983 with a simple mission, bringing customers from distress to relief – anytime, anywhere – and went on to become one of the very first identity theft resolution providers in the U.S. in 2003.

Today, understanding that victimization has no geographical boundaries, we’ve got a solution no matter what your customers’ coordinates are.
