ThreatLocker: New Data Centre to Advance Cybersecurity

US cybersecurity company ThreatLocker launches an advanced data centre in Sydney, Australia, to strengthen the country’s cybersecurity strategies

ThreatLocker aims to support the Australian government’s new cybersecurity strategy by launching an advanced data centre to enhance the country’s cybersecurity capabilities.

As part of a wider strategy to operate across the private sector, commonwealth, state, territory and local governments of Australia, ThreatLocker will work to expand endpoint security services and data infrastructure. It will assist Australian entities in complying with Australia’s urgently recommended cybersecurity strategy imposed by the government.

This news comes just over a year after the grand opening of the company’s second headquarters located in Dublin, Ireland.

Moving towards Zero Trust to thwart cyber threats

ThreatLocker is a leader in endpoint security technologies that provides enterprise-level cybersecurity tools to improve the security of servers and endpoints.

As a cybersecurity organisation, it enables Zero Trust security measures via application controls and ringfencing capabilities that align to the majority of businesses. These requirements are presented by the Australian Cyber Security Centre’s Essential Eight Maturity Model.

Zero Trust architecture means that no one is trusted by default from inside or outside a company’s network, requiring verification access. ThreatLocker serves a powerful Zero Trust endpoint security platform designed so that ransomware and other cyberattacks can be prevented by controlling what software can run in their environments. 

During a time of increased cyber threats, there is a challenging need for digital infrastructure to be tightened. A recent report conducted by Telehouse found that 95% of IT decision-makers view digital infrastructure as a risk to businesses as a result of large data surges. It speaks to a need for businesses operating within the data centre industry to invest in cyber resilience. 

The combined solutions of ThreatLocker, including Application Allowlisting, Ringfencing, Storage Control, Elevation Control and Endpoint Network Control, are designed to lead the cybersecurity market towards a more secure approach by blocking threat actors from creating application vulnerabilities.

These solutions will be utilised within Australia to ensure that the country can develop its data infrastructure and innovate further. As part of its Digital Economy Strategy 2030, the country is aiming to improve its digital economy through investment, infrastructure development and foster sustainable economic growth and prosperity.

Commenting on the extension of their security footprint, ThreatLocker Co-Founder and CEO, Danny Jenkins, says: "Zero Trust is a mindset, and I admire the Australian government's holistic approach, involving the wider community to tackle a modern-day threat. As one of the top vendors assisting businesses with Essential Eight guidelines, we are thrilled to strengthen our collaboration with Australia through this centre, bolstering their data protection and compliance initiatives.”
