ORLANDO, FL, April 4, 2023 – BlackCloak, the pioneer in Digital Executive Protection and concierge cybersecurity for executives and senior leaders, high net worth individuals, and family offices today announced its new mobile application to support clients seeking to protect their personal digital lives. The application offers a significant number of features and enhancements, allowing users to monitor the cyber health of their applications, services, home networks, emails, and more. In addition, BlackCloak also announces the appointment of Matt Petrosky as Vice President of Product. In this role, Petrosky will be responsible for scaling the product team and managing BlackCloak’s evolving Concierge Cybersecurity & Privacy™ Platform.

Newly Engineered Platform

“We are excited to release an entirely new platform for personal cybersecurity to our clients.  The work of this team to deliver a first class product that puts the power of cybersecurity and privacy in the hands of this highly targeted client base is truly amazing,” said Dr. Chris Pierson, founder and CEO of BlackCloak. “As we’ve seen with the LastPass breach, cybersecurity risks go beyond the four walls of the office and the need for this personal protection continues to grow.”

Features of the BlackCloak Mobile Application include: 

  • Malicious Calendar Engine – Using proprietary anti-malware technology, the BlackCloak mobile app will automatically determine the legitimacy of invitations or newly added calendars, giving members the opportunity to delete potentially malicious events before malicious code can be injected. 
  • Manage BlackCloak Services – Clients will have the ability to view and manage details of their BlackCloak services including their home network and email account protection. 
  • Enhanced VPN and wireless security functionality.

“We’re excited to launch our new mobile application, enabling clients to stay protected from bad actors looking to compromise their digital personal lives,” said Aaron Wise, CTO of BlackCloak. “The enhancements we’ve made give the client peace of mind knowing that their digital assets, channels, and services are continuously monitored for malicious activity.”
