How Does the ThreatLocker Approval Process Work?

This approval process can be summarized as follows; an execution is blocked, a request is sent by the user, it’s evaluated by the administrator, and if permitted, within 60 seconds it can run.

When a file gets blocked by ThreatLocker, the user can request permission from an administrator.

Once the user clicks the 'Request Access' button, the request window will populate.
