Addresses emerging risks facing consumers

compromised. Last year there were over 16 million victims of identity
fraud, which resulted in over $16 billion of losses. With the
acquisition of InfoArmor, Allstate will protect more customers from this
risk and help rebuild their lives after they have been hacked," said Tom
Wilson, Chairman, President and CEO of Allstate. "InfoArmor is the go-to
identity protection company in the employee benefits market, providing
an opportunity to expand the Allstate Benefits business now serving over
4 million employees."

"InfoArmor and Allstate are an unbeatable combination in providing
identity protection to employees through voluntary benefit programs,"
said John Schreiber, CEO of InfoArmor. "Our relationships with top
benefit brokers and over 1,000 companies will be enhanced by Allstate's
capabilities and access to the Allstate Benefits distribution network."
