March 3, 2022:ThreatLocker, the cybersecurity firm protecting endpoints with enterprise-level tools for Businesses and Managed Service Providers (MSPs), today released the commissioned Total Economic Impact™ TEI study conducted by Forrester Consulting which examined the potential return on investment (ROI) businesses and MSPs may realize by deploying ThreatLocker. Based on interviews with ThreatLocker customers, the study determined that companies can significantly reduce the risk and financial impacts of security breaches while increasing internal operational efficiencies.
An increasing number of businesses and MSPs are adopting ThreatLocker, a comprehensive Zero Trust endpoint security solution, to transition away from a reliance on threat detection within traditional antivirus tools.
“I think what ThreatLocker does, besides the kind of one-two punch of allowlisting and ringfencing is give us a view into something that none of us had before.”

Key benefits experienced by ThreatLocker customers
Avoided risk of data breach costs of nearly $1.6 million.
ThreatLocker users enable a default-deny approach that prevents zero-day attacks from evolving crimeware threats. According to the study, companies using the solution could conservatively expect a 45% decrease in the number of data breaches based on their investment in ThreatLocker, avoiding nearly $1.6 million in data breach costs over three years for the composite organization.
Decreased impact of financial breaches nearing $1 million.
Interviewees used ThreatLocker Ringfencing to limit application and storage use to its intended purpose, ultimately preventing attacks from causing widespread damage on their internal networks. ThreatLocker prevents applications from maliciously running other programs like PowerShell and exposing the company to outside threats while limiting the exposure from internal attacks. The composite organization experienced a decreased impact of financial breaches nearing $1 million over three years. Interviewees noted a significant drop in security breaches from ransomware, reporting no incidents since deploying ThreatLocker.
Enhanced and streamlined security stack for savings of more than $442,000.
Organizations using ThreatLocker reduce their reliance on antivirus and EDR solutions to meet their endpoint data security needs. As a result, the composite organization saved more than $442,000 over a three-year period by decommissioning or downgrading legacy tools after deploying ThreatLocker.
Improved control and visibility within internal network.
ThreatLocker helps organizations better understand internal and external activity within their network, while granting more appropriate access to its users.
