Cybersecurity threats seem like a never-ending story, with each day bringing a new breach and a new threat. Unfortunately, the major breaches such as the 2016 DNC Hack and the WannaCry Ransomware are just the ones we hear about. Every minute of every day businesses are brought to their knees by ransomware, malware, viruses and data theft.
Our team at ThreatLocker is regularly called in to help with Insurance, Finance and Government agencies to contain the latest attack. In pretty much all circumstances every breach has one thing in common. Some malware is running on a computer on the local network.
Up until now, businesses have used a combination of administrative permissions and antivirus software to control what is running on their organizations computers. These techniques leave a huge hole in an organizations security. Administrative permissions only control what software can be installed on a computer, and does not protect the users profile. Whereas antivirus and antimalware software stops known viruses and malware from running.
Neither of these solutions stop unknown viruses or even specific applications from running, encrypting or stealing a user’s or organizations data.
ThreatLocker gives busineesses back control to stop viruses, malware and cybersecurity breaches. Unlike traditional antimalware software ThreatLocker only allows applications that are approved by I.T. administrator to run on their computers. Administrators can easily set policies dictating what type of applications can be run, and even permit access in real time or on a temporary basis.
Current cybersecurity solutions work on the basis of blocking known threats. Whereas ThreatLocker Control only permits approved applications.
Danny Jenkins – C.E.O of ThreatLocker says “We put locks on our homes and businesses, and we only allow those in who we trust. The virtual world should be no different, we should only allow applications we trust, and block everything else”.
Historically businesses have been against the process of only permitting allowed applications, as the burden in making exceptions was always too difficult. With ThreatLocker Control administrators can permit access with a simple click, removing the burden of security from users.
To slow down cybersecurity breaches. ThreatLocker is offering any company that signs up within the next 30 days “A full years’ worth of free service”. Danny Jenkins says “We hope this will offer relief to companies while they are able to develop complete cybersecurity plans”.
