ThreatLocker, a cybersecurity company that provides businesses and managed service providers (MSPs) with enterprise-level tools to protect endpoints, announced the release of ThreatLocker Network Access Control (NAC), which controls inbound traffic to endpoints to add a new layer of security to the company’s zero trust platform. 

Danny Jenkins, CEO of ThreatLocker, said “With remote work as the standard practice, the local network is no more. Companies need to have full visibility of the traffic going to their endpoints, as nation-state threat actors and everyday cybercriminals are hitting targets across every industry. This is a pivotal moment in the battle to stop attacks that have been launched on remotely accessible servers, including MSPs RMM servers. 

Customers can now configure network access to endpoints using global policies thanks to ThreatLocker’s introduction of NAC. Whether it’s a local server or a remote laptop, the solution provides visibility into all permitted and denied inbound traffic within a single audit. Like a typical firewall, policies can be created. A centralized view of endpoints is offered to clients by the cloud-managed system. 

Neal Juern from Juern Technology, a Texas-based MSP stated, “We now have the ability to take RMM servers off the general internet while dynamically allowing agents to connect from where they are without a VPN… This gives us peace of mind knowing that we are protected against an RMM vulnerability that could allow an attacker to use our tools to push ransomware to clients.”
