BlackFog Launches Virtual CISO Offering

BlackFog, the leader in on-device data privacy, data security and ransomware prevention today announced the launch of its virtual CISO (vCISO) service, an enhanced product offering tailored to small and medium sized businesses that provides organizations with the security expertise they need without the hassle and expense of recruiting a fulltime CISO. BlackFog’s vCISO service is managed by insider threat experts and risk management professionals with a deep history in law enforcement and cybersecurity investigations.


Ransomware attacks on small to medium sized businesses are becoming more frequent, targeted, and complex and many are not adequately prepared to defend against them. The trend for double extortion attacks is even more worrying for organizations who do not have anti data exfiltration (ADX) technology, as this leaves organizations unable to adequately protect their data. According to recent research, anti data exfiltration remains a top priority for 94 percent of organizations, yet only 43 percent are confident their organization would emerge unscathed from a ransomware attack, with no data exfiltrated. BlackFog’s vCISO service addresses these concerns by providing ADX technology across all devices, ensuring data privacy and security for SMBs.


“With cyber threats growing daily in both sophistication and frequency, current security measures are simply not enough to stop data exfiltration, especially for SMBs that don’t have sufficient resources or expertise at their disposal,” said Dr. Darren Williams, BlackFog founder and CEO. “Our goal in launching this new vCISO service is to provide everything companies need out of the box to protect them from ransomware and other cyber threats, with constant monitoring provided by BlackFog.”

As part of the new offering, BlackFog’s dedicated team of experts will provide detailed monthly assessments for compliance and auditing, eliminating the need for organizations to have their own dedicated teams. Customers will have access to a custom branded enterprise console that is fully managed by BlackFog’s team of experts.


The BlackFog vCISO service includes access to BlackFog’s experienced CISOs and law enforcement professionals, with the ability to purchase additional time for emergency response.
