Endpoint Protection for Financial Services

Protecting Sensitive Data and Credibility

Organizations within the financial service sector are prime targets for cyberattacks because of the sensitive data they host. A cyberattack within the finance industry can ruin an organization's reputation, leading to severe harm like stunted growth or complete failure.

Rising Breach Costs for Financial Institutions

Financial institutions hold valuable PII for each of their customers. This PII commands a high price on the dark web. In 2019, the average cost of a breach in this industry was over $5 million dollars. Many large-named organizations have experienced multiple breaches in recent years, signifying the growing importance of ensuring companies in this industry have adequate cybersecurity controls in place.

Growing Cybersecurity Challenges

The financial industry struggles to keep up with today’s evolving threat landscape. As businesses balance the need to keep costs low and remain profitable, legacy systems may not be replaced. These legacy systems are ripe targets for threat actors that have had time to discover all their vulnerabilities.

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

Normally, applications have access to all the same data as the end user. If an application is absolutely necessary, ThreatLocker® Ringfencing™ can implement Zero Trust controls comparable to, but more granular than, traditional application containment toolsThreatLocker® 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. These controls can prevent applications from interacting with another application, your files, data, or the internet.

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.
