Protecting Windows Servers from Exploits and Malware

ThreatLocker® Application Control protects servers from viruses, malware, and exploits, using our combination of RingFencing™ and Application Whitelisting.

Businesses often focus their protection efforts on desktops and laptops but fail to protect their most important assets. Files, Emails, Applications, and Web Servers are all vulnerable to attacks. Computers that connect to your network can use vulnerabilities in operating systems and difficulty in gaining administrative control or infect servers with malware, such as ransomware or viruses.

ThreatLocker® RingFencing™ protects Windows servers from known and unknown vulnerabilities. ThreatLocker® RingFencing™ isolates core processes, preventing them from exploiting or accessing other parts of the operating system, which dramatically reduces the risk of an effective exploit on a Microsoft Windows Server.

The NSA had used the EternalBlue vulnerability for years before it was publicly made available. This exploit was used to spread ransomware and gain administrative access to computers and servers around the world. Antivirus software is useless in defending operating systems with this type of vulnerability, and while Microsoft did eventually patch the vulnerability, it has been used for years by the NSA and potentially foreign governments to access computers around the world. ThreatLocker® RingFencing™ was able to prevent EternalBlue and other exploits from launching code against accessing your documents and installing malware before the vulnerability was even known by Microsoft or a patch was installed.

The ThreatLocker® Application Whitelisting takes securing Microsoft Windows Servers to another level. In addition to RingFencing™ processes, it prevents any unauthorized software or libraries from being opened.

Windows File Servers and Domain Controllers are at a higher risk of exploits from vulnerabilities because SMB ports must be left open to the Local Network.
ThreatLocker Ring Fencing™ Reduces the surface area of attack of Windows Servers. This prevents attackers from exploiting vulnerabilities that may not have been patched yet or are unknown by the general public.
Malware can swap out executable files, DLL files, or other libraries, which can result in malware running on your Windows Servers.
ThreatLocker® Application Whitelisting stops any software that is not explicitly permitted from running. ThreatLocker® Whitelisting can be deployed in a few hours and required little management overhead.
Application and Web Servers that face the Internet are at higher risk of being damaged by malware or other exploits.
ThreatLocker® Ring Fencing™ limits the surface area of public facing servers and stops any authorized software including malware, ransomware, and viruses from executing on Microsoft Windows Servers.
