Modern life means a colossal amount of your sensitive data, from your bank information to details about your health, is online and vulnerable. 2021 has already had more publicly reported data breaches than 2020, and the year isn’t over yet!

To help protect you and your information from the many different cybersecurity threats out there, you can purchase a bundled cybersecurity solution. A bundled solution is a threat intelligence platform that covers the many vulnerabilities that your online information may have. Getting a single, all-encompassing digital security solution is much easier than picking out and managing multiple cybersecurity solutions. 

Batten’s two favorite cybersecurity bundle options are Aura and Total Digital Security (TDS). Which one is right for you? It depends on your needs and the type of experience you want, as the two platforms are quite different.

What Makes Aura Great

Aura is our top choice for the best all-in-one security solution to help secure your personal information and accounts. Aura combines financial, identity, network, and device protection with a super simple user experience into one affordable cybersecurity platform. Your complete digital security solution can help protect everything you care about with just one dashboard. 

This cybersecurity bundle is extremely easy to use and includes  24/7 customer support staff.  With Aura, you’ll be alerted to any digital security threats and recover lost assets, providing up to $1 million in identity theft insurance* for eligible losses.  What’s more, you can utilize any of the solutions in the bundle as desired—use one, a few, or all of them based on your needs.

Get all of these great features and more for as little as $9 per month.
