ThreatLocker | February 07, 2023
ThreatLocker®, an endpoint security technology pioneer, recently announced the launch of ThreatLocker Ops, a community-driven threat detection tool, at Zero Trust World. This new product helps administrators detect attempted intrusions or system vulnerabilities.
Ops is a policy-driven system that determines good or bad behavior based on ThreatLocker agent data. This information may be used to notify IT administrators of attempted attacks or to initiate measures to harden an environment utilizing other platform components. The Ops platform also integrates with ThreatLocker's new community, which allows similar firms to publish policies that are pertinent to their business, allowing for information exchange and a more comprehensive set of alerts.
With tighter security controls, reduced agent fatigue, and minimal overhead on personal computers, Ops reduces dependency on other IT resources.
ThreatLocker further announced the incorporation of the Third Wall plug-in into its zero trust platform. This announcement followed Third Wall's acquisition last November.
The sophisticated configurations manager for Windows consists of 58 lockdown policies and emergency actions to widen the scope of ransomware prevention and assure user compliance with HIPAA, PCI, NIST, and GDPR.
The latest additions to ThreatLocker comply with several government regulations on the use of Zero Trust strategies to counter current threats.
ThreatLocker will offer its new products to existing and new partners. Currently, it secures over a million endpoints worldwide.
Founded in 2017, ThreatLocker is an endpoint security technology pioneer driving the cybersecurity industry toward a more secure way of preventing unexpected application vulnerabilities. Its ThreatLocker Control Suite integrates solutions for RingfencingTM, Application Whitelisting, Storage Control, and Elevation Control to simplify security. ThreatLocker’s powerful suite of security tools are designed to provide everyone from enterprises to government agencies to academic institutions complete control over which apps operate on their networks. The company is headquartered in Maitland, Florida and has been recognized as one of the most efficient cyber security solutions.
