Security insights from ThreatLocker
Company hires European VP of operations to lead regional growth, hiring, development, and to help more customers protect their enterprises from network and application threats.
Maitland, FL. – February 18, 2021 – ThreatLocker, a global cybersecurity leader providing
enterprise-level tools for Managed Service Providers (MSPs), today announced that it will open
a European headquarters in Ireland to deliver ThreatLocker’s Zero-trust, data storage
and proprietary Ringfencing solutions to businesses through MSPs across the EMEA region.
ThreatLocker currently works with over 2000 partners globally, and the company is already
operating in Europe and the United Kingdom. The opening of its European headquarters in
Ireland will further support the company’s growth and plans to grow our partner community
across Europe. The company also expects to hire 50 new employees to support engineering,
sales and R&D in the region.
“Organizations are rapidly accelerating their digital transformations, while facing an ever-
shifting cybersecurity landscape and increasing threats,” said Danny Jenkins, CEO, ThreatLocker.
“This combination is driving huge demand for enterprise-level security from organizations that
previously did not have the resources or means to procure them. We are excited to plant our
stake in the ground and help more organizations across Europe to gain the breadth of security
needed to operate in the digital economy.”
The Irish headquarters will be led by Rob Allen, Vice President of Operations (EMEA) for
ThreatLocker. Rob brings more than two decades of experience working with Ireland’s
community of MSPs to remediate the effects of ransomware, viruses and malicious software
running on endpoints and servers. He will lead ThreatLocker’s hiring in the region to add an
additional 50 employees, as well as to help deliver ThreatLocker’s enterprise-level security
products to customers throughout the EMEA region.
“ThreatLocker’s unique approach to combining a Default Deny approach, Privileged Access
Management (PAM) and Ringfencing is the ideal solution to help small businesses as well as
enterprises defend against and recover from cyber and ransomware attacks,” said Rob Allen,
Vice President of Operations, ThreatLocker. “I’m thrilled to join this fast-growing team and help
MSPs across Europe and the UK to improve the cybersecurity posture of their customers and to
mitigate growing risks.”
Helping EU Organizations Meet GDPR Standards
GDPR fines are rapidly increasing in Ireland. According to a recent DLA Piper report, the number
of data breach notifications that organizations made in the past year to regulators reached
121,165, marking a 19 percent increase from the 101,403 breach notifications issued the
previous year. Malicious software is one of the most frequent ways that companies are
breached and ThreatLocker’s Ringfencing capabilities provide new levels of application control
and peace of mind for customers to combat this threat.
ThreatLocker enables MSPs to whitelist applications as well as to limit access to connected
applications using Ringfencing, which defines how applications can interact with each other to
reduce risks. This technology also controls which resources applications can access, such as the
network, files, and registry.
