Global cybersecurity leader ThreatLocker launches a new data centre in Toronto, Canada to protect against rising cyberattacks on national infrastructure

Over the course of 2024, Canada has seen a continued increase in high-profile cyberattacks. 

Retailers and critical infrastructure systems in particular have been targeted, sending business leaders scrambling to bolster their data protection and compliance initiatives across a range of sectors. These include the private sector, commonwealth, state, territory and local governments.

As a result, leading cybersecurity solutions provider ThreatLocker announces the launch of its new data centre in the city of Toronto. The facility seeks to significantly improve cybersecurity capabilities for Canadian businesses and organisations.

The news comes less than three months after the company opened its data centre in Sydney, Australia to assist the country in complying with its national cybersecurity strategy.

Expanding Canada’s threat prevention infrastructure

Canadian businesses are continuing to invest in new digital transformation strategies to upscale, harnessing the power of technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) in order to do so. As a nation, Canada is already well-known around the world for its technology leadership in AI research and the growth of innovative companies.

Companies such as Microsoft, STACK Infrastructure and Telehouse have already expanded their data centre infrastructure across the country to engage in the digital economy, as well as to combat large infrastructure challenges - something that is becoming more frequent.

ThreatLocker’s new data centre has been designed to assist Canadian businesses by aligning with baseline cybersecurity controls as recommended by the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security, the unified source of guidance and services on cybersecurity for Canadians.

More specifically, ThreatLocker offers Zero Trust and Least Privilege capabilities in the form of Application Control, Ringfencing, Network Control and Privilege Access Management solutions, in addition to other options.

Expanding across Canada in this way means that ThreatLocker can better support its clients to mitigate and prevent cyberattacks, as company co-founder and CEO Danny Jenkins explains.

“As one of the leading Zero Trust cybersecurity vendors assisting organisations with aligning with essential compliance framework guidelines, we are excited to enhance our collaboration with Canada through this data centre, bolstering their data protection initiatives,” he comments. “ThreatLocker strives to ensure the security of every client, no matter the location.”

Powering cyber-secure data centres

First founded in 2017 by Danny, alongside Sami Jenkins and John Carolan, ThreatLocker currently protects more than two million endpoints across more than 40,000 organisations worldwide.

The company provides around-the-clock Cyber Hero support with an average response time of 60 seconds or less. In particular, its Zero Trust endpoint security platform is designed to help organisations stop cyberattacks such as ransomware by controlling what software can run in their environments. 

ThreatLocker’s combined solutions help to contribute to a safer cybersecurity market, enabling a more secure approach by blocking threat actor exploits of application vulnerabilities that are unknown to businesses.

Whilst the data centre industry continues to face immense pressures, given new demands for technology, it is essential that companies are considering stringent cybersecurity strategies in order to support customers responsibly.
