The Orlando-based company provides cutting-edge cybersecurity tools which allow companies to chart their own course free from cybercriminals. ThreatLocker grows their existing partnership with the team to new heights through the COTC partnership, providing additional protection of the Magic’s endpoints through its market-leading cybersecurity services.
Through this partnership, ThreatLocker will be one of the team's eight COTC partners. These partners represent a unique tier of brands with a shared commitment to the Central Florida community. Magic COTC partners include AdventHealth, City National Bank, Florida Blue, L3Harris, PepsiCo, Simply IOA, ThreatLocker and Walt Disney World.

ThreatLocker will continue to grow these types of programs in the Orlando area.
