On day two of Zero Trust World 2023, ThreatLocker unveiled Ops, a new community-driven threat detection tool. MSPs are looking forward to making use of the tool with their clients.

This new product helps administrators detect attempted breaches or weaknesses in their systems. Zero Trust World, ThreatLocker’s largest ever conference, is happening this week in Orlando.

Ops is a policy-driven system. It uses data received from the ThreatLocker agent to determine good or bad behavior. The data can be used to alert IT administrators of attempted attacks. It can also trigger actions to further harden an environment using other components of the platform.

The Ops platform also integrates into ThreatLocker’s new community, which allows businesses to publish policies that may be relevant to other, similar businesses. That allows for information sharing and a larger set of alerts.

Ops Can Help Companies Dealing with Tight Budgets

As companies scale back resources to become more budget conscious amid economic uncertainty, Ops limits reliance on other IT resources with more security controls, less agent fatigue and no overhead on PCs, ThreatLocker said.

“Zero trust is the required foundation of security for all organizations,” he said. “By combining controls with Ops, organizations are not only able to benefit from knowledge ThreatLocker has received of attempted attacks, but from similar businesses defending their system from these attacks.”

Also during Zero Trust World, ThreatLocker announced the integration of the Third Wall plug-in in its zero trust platform. This announcement follows the acquisition of Third Wall last November. This configurations manager for Windows consists of 58 lockdown policies and emergency actions to broaden the scope of ransomware prevention, and ensure users are compliant with privacy and security regulations.
