ThreatLocker® uses Application Control techniques such as Ringfencing™ and Application Whitelisting to stop zero-day malware threats.
Malware creators are getting faster and faster at releasing new threats. Last year, nearly 1 million new pieces of malware were created each day. Antivirus vendors use methods such as definition files with a list of known viruses, heuristics, or AI to try and identify if a file is a virus.
Unfortunately, this kind of old school way of thinking leaves you vulnerable and at risk of being infected by a virus or malware from zero-day attacks. Antivirus vendors take hours or even days to update their definitions or their analytics to detect a new trend of malicious software. Ransomware and other malicious software can copy or encrypt your files in a few minutes.
ThreatLocker® uses a more logical approach to stop viruses and malware from affecting your business. ThreatLocker® Application Control uses a combination of Application Whitelisting and Ringfencing™ to protect your business from known and unknown malware threats.
