Executive Protection Provider BlackCloak Launches First Channel Program
BlackCloak protects the personal digital lives of corporate executives, board members, and key company personnel.
BlackCloak, a digital executive protection provider, has launched its first B2B Channel Partner Program for North America.
BlackCloak provides executive protection for executives, VIPs and high net worth individuals. For the first time, resellers, MSPs and other channel partners can provide their customers with a SaaS cybersecurity and privacy solution. It reduces business risk by protecting the personal digital lives – online privacy, personal devices and home networks – of corporate executives, board members and key company personnel.
Since soft-launching its partner program earlier this year, BlackCloak has cemented its partnerships with Hippogriff, Level Solutions Group, EverSec Group, and Panacea Solutions. He also has several other deals in the works.
Start a partner program Always a goal
Devin Archer is BlackCloak’s Head of Distribution and Strategic Partnership.
“We have always aimed to launch a partner program because we know how important the channel is for scaling, especially in the cybersecurity industry,” he said. “Towards the end of 2021, we started to receive a lot of interest from resellers, MSPs and MSSPs, so we decided to accelerate the formation of our program.”
The BlackCloak Partner Program will offer what the company calls flexible compensation packages, short sales cycles, marketing and sales support, and personalized onboarding experiences for partners and their customers. No technical training, configuration and management, or incident response is required.
“Partners’ contribution is especially important when considering how different digital protection for executives is from the privacy and cybersecurity solutions they are most accustomed to providing their customers,” Archer said. “We have spent much of the past five months listening to recommendations from our initial partners for everything from sales and marketing to customer onboarding and engagement. We are very partner-centric and will continue to do so. partner contribution a strategically important aspect of our day-to-day operations.”
More partnership opportunities
BlackCloak’s platform offers partners the ability to deliver new product value to its customers. Additionally, it offers them the opportunity to deepen relationships with the business beyond the cybersecurity team.
“There’s no doubt that a formalized partner program will help us scale faster than we already do,” Archer said. “We also believe that BlackCloak can be an important competitive advantage for our partners. There is no other solution for enterprise or consumer markets that rises to the challenge of protecting executives and high-level employees in their personal digital lives. As attacking executives’ personal digital lives to breach the business becomes more commonplace, having a solution like BlackCloak readily available will make our partners even more valuable to their customers than they already are. Combine that with the fact that our sales cycles are fast and our technology requires no installation, configuration or maintenance by our partners, the opportunity cost of partnering with BlackCloak is very much in favor of partners.
Tim McSherry is the Managing Partner of EverSec.
“BlackCloak is truly at the forefront of solving what has become a growing problem that no CISO or enterprise cybersecurity solution can solve,” he said. “Our customers will benefit immensely from the ability to protect the personal digital lives of their executives.”
