Senior Resource Alliance Partners With Cybersecurity Company To Protect Central Florida Seniors Online

CyberFence App Aims to Mitigate Risk as Seniors’ Online Presence Grows

ORLANDO – As seniors’ use of the internet and social media continues to trend upwards, Senior Resource Alliance (SRA) – Central Florida’s Area Agency on Aging – is partnering with Perez Technology Group, a leading innovator in cybersecurity solutions in Orlando, to safeguard local seniors from cyber threats.

Resulting largely from the pandemic’s impact on the access to telehealth appointments and the need to connect with loved ones virtually, seniors have quickly adopted technology and ultimately increased their risk of being scammed. To combat this, Perez Technology Group has donated 5,000 downloads of its newly launched cybersecurity app, CyberFence, to protect local seniors.

“Senior Resource Alliance’s top priority is to protect our seniors – and that includes from the perils of cybercrime – so we’re incredibly grateful to Perez Technology for this generous donation,” said Karla Radka, SRA president and CEO. “Embracing technology is key to our mission of allowing seniors to age independently and safely – but as seniors continue to grow their digital presence, it puts them at greater risk of cyber threats. This app can empower our seniors to navigate the digital landscape safely and securely.”

CyberFence is a user-friendly app that blocks vicious cyberthreats and encrypts important data and information, ensuring peace of mind for seniors as they navigate technology. CyberFence was developed by Perez Technology Group, a leading Central Florida Cybersecurity and Managed IT company, and the CyberFence donation is valued at $25,000.

“CyberFence was created to combat the increase in cyber security threats from enterprises to small businesses and to the every-day user,” said Perez Technology Group President Carlos Perez. “We are incredibly proud that we can help to protect our community’s seniors, and we value our partnership with Senior Resource Alliance.”

SRA plans to deploy the CyberFence app licenses to local seniors in Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Brevard Counties free of charge throughout spring 2024. Seniors, their caregivers and loved ones can apply for the free CyberFence app at
