Forming a Team to Combat Ransomware Now Possible with ThreatLocker Ops

Forming a Team to Combat Ransomware Now Possible with ThreatLocker Ops

By Greg Tavarez

Zero trust is the modern strategy when it comes to cybersecurity. Limiting communication and access from everyone to only those authorized mitigates the risk of viruses and malware attacks.

ThreatLocker, an expert in endpoint security technologies, has a phrase for this strategy: “never trust, always verify.” ThreatLocker keeps this phrase at its core and shows they are serious about zero trust with the launch of ThreatLocker Ops, a community-driven threat detection tool that assists administrators to detect attempted breaches or weaknesses in their systems. This helps IT professionals stay ahead of exploits of known and unknown vulnerabilities while ensuring that threats are blocked by ThreatLocker.

Being a community-driven tool, ThreatLocker Ops allows organizations to work together with the common goal of stopping threat actors. IT admins share policies that are relevant to other organizations, which means they continue enhancing their security stack and create successful policies developed by community members with feedback to better improve overall defenses.

Ransomware actors work as teams to infiltrate and harm an organization. It is time to construct a defensive team to stay ahead of ransomware groups and their malicious agendas.

“By combining controls with Ops, organizations are not only able to benefit from knowledge ThreatLocker has received of attempted attacks but from similar businesses defending their system from these attacks,” said Danny Jenkins, CEO and co-founder of ThreatLocker. 

That is not all ThreatLocker is doing for zero trust. Following the acquisition of Third Wall, ThreatLocker is integrating a Third Wall plug-in in its zero trust platform.

The purpose of the integration is to make sure there is a good baseline policy to secure and prevent malicious activity. The configurations manager for Windows consists of 58 lockdown policies and emergency actions to broaden the scope of ransomware prevention and ensure users are HIPAA, PCI, NIST and GDPR compliant. 

The new additions by ThreatLocker satisfy many government regulations on implementing zero trust strategies to prevent modern-day attacks. ThreatLocker’s Ops is available in early access.

ThreatLocker is a platinum sponsor at MSP Expo 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.
