Maitland, Florida, February 22, 2022 – ThreatLocker, the cybersecurity firm protecting endpoints with enterprise-level tools for businesses and managed service providers (MSPs) announced today the release of ThreatLocker Network Access Control (NAC), which adds a new layer of protection to the company’s zero trust platform by controlling inbound traffic to endpoints.
With ThreatLocker’s release of NAC, customers now have the ability to configure network access to endpoints using global policies. The solution gives visibility into all permitted and denied inbound traffic within a unified audit, regardless of whether it’s a local server or remote laptop. Policies can be created similar to a regular firewall. The cloud managed solution provides customers with a centralized view of endpoints.
ThreatLocker NAC denies all traffic to published servers while only allowing a single IP address dynamically. This is made possible without needing to reconfigure firewalls every time a laptop or computer checks in on another device.
These policies can be created using authentication keys rather than just IP addresses. Unlike a VPN that needs to connect through a central point, the ThreatLocker NAC is a simple connection between server and client. It’s built in a way that creates a seamless experience, enabling users to work as normal while eliminating the need for a solution, such as a VPN.
“With remote work as the standard practice, the local network is no more. Companies need to have full visibility of the traffic going to their endpoints, as nation-state threat actors and everyday cybercriminals are hitting targets across every industry. This is a pivotal moment in the battle to stop attacks that have been launched on remotely accessible servers, including MSPs RMM servers” said Danny Jenkins, CEO of ThreatLocker.
“We now have the ability to take RMM servers off the general internet while dynamically allowing agents to connect from where they are without a VPN… This gives us peace of mind knowing that we are protected against an RMM vulnerability that could allow an attacker to use our tools to push ransomware to clients” - Says Neal Juern from Juern Technology, a Texas-based MSP.
