Endpoint Security for Educational Institutions
State of Educational Institutions
Internet of Things (IoT)
Granular Network Control to prevent unapproved network connections, diminishing the potential for compromised IoT devices to serve as an entry point into the network.
Storage Control helps mitigate the risk of external breaches and internal data leaks by providing policy-driven control over access to USBs, local folders, or network shares.
Third Party Apps
Allowlisting and Ringfencing™ provide superior protection against malware, ransomware, and other unknown threats. Regardless of how the malware enters a system unless it is on the Allowlist, it will be unable to run, protecting organizations from mistakes, poor judgment, and cybercriminals.
Securing Devices from Unsecured Networks
Using Network Control, you can block inbound traffic to all assets based on IP address, object, and dynamic ACLs. Add a default deny Network Control policy to block all inbound traffic and create policies to permit access to only what is needed.
How ThreatLocker Helps Educational Institutions
Providing Protection & Earning Trust
ThreatLocker has allowed us to provide our clients with genuine security and gives us peace of mind
We can sleep easier knowing viruses aren't installing things, employees aren't installing things, and nothing is running without someone getting an alert and having eyes on it and approving it.
ThreatLocker is very easy to use. Most things are intuitive but when I need help the Cyber Heroes send me a quick tutorial video that solves the problem easily.
ThreatLocker® Key Uses
Proactive Approach to Cybersecurity
Unlike antivirus or traditional EDR, ThreatLocker Allowlisting solution puts you in control of what software, scripts, executables, and libraries can run on your endpoints and servers. This approach stops not only malicious software in its tracks but also stops other unpermitted applications from running. This process greatly minimizes cyber threats and other rogue applications from running on your network.
Preventing the Weaponization of Legitimate Tools
ThreatLocker Ringfencing™ controls what applications are able to do once they are running. By limiting how software can interact on your devices, ThreatLocker® can reduce the likelihood of an exploit being successful or an attacker weaponizing legitimate tools such as PowerShell.
Limiting Application Hopping for Administrators
Elevation Control puts IT administrators in the driver’s seat, enabling them to control specific applications that can run as a local admin without giving users local admin rights.
With applications such as Quickbooks that need to run with local admin access; Elevation control can limit that access without impacting operational workflow, which can prevent the further spread of an attack, like application hopping, in case there is a breach in the endpoint.
Control Over Storage Devices and Data Access
ThreatLocker Storage Control provides policy-driven control over storage devices, whether the storage device is a local folder, a network share, or external storage such as a USB drive. Storage Control allows you to set granular policies, such as blocking USB drives or blocking access to your backup share except when your backup application is accessed.
