MetLife partners with Aura

MetLife and Aura announced a collaboration whereby MetLife will be the exclusive distributor of Aura’s “digital security solutions” in the employer channel.

Aura offers identity theft protection that comes with $1 million identity theft insurance. The company competes with Allstate, which offers a similar service under Allstate Identity Protection. Aura also competes with Chase, which last year rolled out free identity monitoring to its customers.

“We know employees want more benefits geared toward prevention and wellness. When we expand our portfolio of benefit offerings, we look for best-in-class providers who will help us protect the finances, wellness and now the digital health and safety of our customers and their families. Aura’s solution will help safeguard employees’ digital identity and provide peace of mind that what matters most is protected.” – Meredith Ryan-Reid, senior vice president, Financial Wellness & Innovation at MetLife.

“Over the last two years, we have seen surging demand for digital security solutions in response to a drastic increase in cybercrime. By working with MetLife, Aura will be able to rapidly scale our operations and keep millions of Americans safe.” – Hari Ravichandran, founder and CEO of Aura.
