CRN Tech Innovator Finalist

Orlando, FL, November 16, 2021 – ThreatLocker, the cybersecurity firm protecting endpoints with enterprise-level tools for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), is announcing that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named ThreatLocker as a Finalist for the 2021 CRN Tech Innovator Awards. ThreatLocker is recognized for its ThreatLocker Elevation Control in the Endpoint Protection category.

This annual award program showcases innovative vendors in the IT channel across 47 different technology categories, in key areas ranging from cloud to storage to networking to security. To determine the winners, a panel of CRN editors reviewed hundreds of vendor products using multiple criteria, including key capabilities, uniqueness, technological ingenuity, and ability to address customer and partner needs.

CRN’s Tech Innovator Awards honor the most groundbreaking products and services in the IT channel. These offerings are crafted by vendors who have shown an unwavering commitment to technical ingenuity that empowers solution providers and their customers through state-of-the-art advances. 

ThreatLocker Elevation Control, a Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution, connects to its cloud-based Application Control Suite to help MSPs streamline management of local admin rights and add an extra layer of security by creating access policies for individuals on specific applications. Combined with ThreatLocker’s Application Whitelisting, Ringfencing™, Elevation Control, and Storage Control, application vulnerabilities will not be exploited. 

This approach ensures software does not step out of its lane and steal data through malicious behavior caused by ransomware, malware, and other cyber threats. ThreatLocker Elevation Control enables control over what applications can run, who can access them, and how they interact in an organization’s environment. Key capabilities include complete visibility of administrative rights, streamlined permission requests, varying levels of elevation, and secure application integration. 

ThreatLocker offers users the ability to approve or deny an individual’s access to specific applications within an organization even if the user is not a local administrator; request permission to elevate applications and attach files and notes to support their requests; and set durations for how long users are allowed access to specific applications by granting temporary or permanent access and ensures that once applications are elevated, users cannot jump to infiltrate connected applications within the network.

“CRN’s annual Tech Innovator Awards acknowledge technology vendors that display their ongoing commitment to empowering and enabling end-users, while also promoting continuous business growth for solution providers, with cutting-edge, purpose-built products and services,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “I’d like to personally congratulate every one of this year’s CRN Tech Innovator Award winners. We are proud to recognize these best-in-class vendors that are driving transformation and innovation in the IT space.”

“We’re honored that ThreatLocker has been named a finalist on CRN’s 2021 Tech Innovators Award list in the Endpoint Protection category,” said Danny Jenkins, CEO of ThreatLocker. “We strongly believe ThreatLocker has proven to be an important product that improves cybersecurity posture for our channel partners and their clients. By reviewing and approving many common applications proactively, ThreatLocker Elevation Control offers a cost-efficient approach to meet current security challenges.”

The Tech Innovator Awards will be featured in the December issue of CRN and can be viewed online at
