ThreatLocker Expands Across the Pond

ThreatLocker Expands Across the Pond

By Greg Tavarez

ThreatLocker is known for operating a zero-trust endpoint security platform that assists organizations from businesses to government agencies and academic institutions to stop ransomware and other cyberattacks.

ThreatLocker’s application allowlisting, Ringfencing, storage control, elevation control and endpoint network access control solutions, when combined, provide a more secure approach of blocking the exploits of unknown application vulnerabilities.

The NBA’s Orlando Magic is among the organizations that recognize the capabilities of ThreatLocker and is in a partnership with the endpoint security technology provider for the greater good of the Central Florida community.

That is just the beginning.

ThreatLocker, based in Florida, is taking its platform and solutions across the pond to Dublin, Ireland, with a new office and 120 jobs in a Dublin suburb, Blanchardstown.

The new Dublin headquarters is the first step of a major European expansion plan for ThreatLocker as the EU prepares to introduce major new legislation, the Digital Operational Resilience Act.

Financial institutions in the EU are the ones that manage the main categories of operational risk (mainly with the allocation of capital), but they do not manage all components of operational resilience. Well, that was the case until DORA came in.

DORA requires financial institutions to follow rules for the protection, detection, containment, recovery and repair capabilities against information and communication technology-related incidents. Long story short, the new legislation places additional cybersecurity requirements on financial services providers. 

So, naturally, there is a growing demand for businesses to strengthen their cybersecurity. ThreatLocker looks to capitalize on that demand.

“ThreatLocker has ambitious targets for growth, and we are aiming to strengthen our foothold in the EMEA region and help businesses protect themselves from increasing cyberattacks including ransomware,” said Danny Jenkins, CEO and Co-Founder of ThreatLocker. “Our company has many Irish links, and Dublin is the EU headquarters of so many major global companies, so it is the perfect location.”

Cybersecurity is a problem. Attacks are more sophisticated. ThreatLocker, founded in 2017, plans to help more businesses avoid paying large sums of money due to an attack with its EU expansion.

ThreatLocker is an MSP Expo platinum sponsor in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Feb. 14-17, 2023.MSP Expo is part of the  #TECHSUPERSHOW, which includes nearly a dozen collocated business technology events that bring buyers, users, sellers and partners together under one roof to educate and build business relationships around the technologies driving business success today. ThreatLocker will be in Booth #846 in the exhibit hall.
