Testing Environment

Learn how ThreatLocker Testing Environment helps administrators make quick and informed decisions on whether newly requested programs should be added to the allowlist.

Allowlisting for Dynamic Environments

ThreatLocker Allowlisting is a powerful solution that simplifies onboarding with our Learning Mode and audit assistance. In dynamic environments, allowlisting is not a set-and-forget solution. When users request to run new applications after the endpoints have been secured, administrators need to make a decision whether to allow or deny these requests. This requires specific knowledge about the requested application or a heavy research lift to investigate and verify whether an application meets the organization's safety requirements.

What Is the ThreatLocker Testing Environment?

ThreatLocker Testing Environment uses a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) to enable administrators to evaluate an approval request quickly. Without taking the risk of running an unknown/untrusted application in a production environment, the VDI creates a temporary testing environment in which to run the requested application. Businesses can now safely evaluate applications in a cloud-based environment to examine how they behave and decide, based on real-time information, the best course of action for their organization.

How Does the Testing Environment Work?

Without impacting your production environment, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) test environment is dynamically created to enable the requested application to run. When the application runs, ThreatLocker Risk Center opens and performs the following evaluations:

Real-Time Audit

Red alerts on these parameters will give the administrator additional information, and all data is logged in real-time, giving you the critical information needed to understand the risk before allowing a user to install new software.

Each of those checkpoints alerts in red for risks, and the tabs provide full details of the impact in a single click. This allows the administrator to quickly and confidently act upon an application install request.

The ThreatLocker Testing Environment is a powerful tool for rapid installation decision-making, keeping you moving at the speed of business.
