Ransomware and other forms of cyberattacks continue to become more sophisticated and compromise the security of user endpoints – and by extension, entire corporate operations. As activities and workloads take place on company endpoints nonstop, it is vital for security practitioners to protect endpoint devices everywhere by blocking threats.
ThreatLocker provides enterprise-level cybersecurity tools to improve the security of servers and endpoints. Tools include ThreatLocker's Allowlisting and Ringfencing solutions.
Allowlisting only permits approved files to execute and blocks everything else. It gives IT professionals control over their IT environments by letting them manage what software is allowed to run and blocking malicious software.
Ringfencing enables IT professionals to limit interactions between applications, their access to files, the registry and the internet. What Ringfencing essentially does is helps protect customers against the weaponization of trusted applications while mitigating risks posed by vulnerabilities.
ThreatLocker, lloking to provide these tools to MSPs and is now doing exactly that after acquiring Third Wall, an automated lockdown security plug-in for ConnectWise Automate users. Third Wall applies 58 automated policies and monitoring to make a system more secure. This is done by creating a record of every user login, logoff, unlock, lock and failed login events.
The addition of Third Wall's lockdown policies to ThreatLocker existing solutions, such as Allowlisting and Ringfencing, enable MSPs to harden Windows operating systems, ensure end-users comply with government regulations and strengthen overall security posture.
“This new partnership with Third Wall will allow ThreatLocker to deploy emergency actions and ensure users are HIPAA, PCI, NIST, GDPR and SOX compliant," said Danny Jenkins, CEO of ThreatLocker.
Third Wall's migration serves as a tool to protect a business's sensitive data and promotes a strong cybersecurity posture. This acquisition also allows seamless integration with remote monitoring management software such as ConnectWise, Kaseya and Atera.
"ThreatLocker's deny by default approach, coupled with their ransomware prevention techniques, are a perfect fit," said Scott Springer, CEO of Third Wall. "ThreatLocker's global reach and 24/7 support will further bolster the Third Wall plug-in and give MSPs that competitive edge to strengthen their security offerings."
The Third Wall team, once integrated into ThreatLocker's organization, is keen on building and expanding the endpoint security use cases that they already taken to market.
ThreatLocker is a Platinum sponsor of MSP Expo 2023, taking place in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Feb. 14-17, 2023.
