Understanding and Changing the Module Options on the Organizations Page

From the Organizations Page, there are dropdown menus called β€œModule” (formerly Product) on the right side of the page, with check box options. When closed they say "X itmes checked". These dropdown menus are a list of all of the available ThreatLocker modules, which can be combined to customize your coverage. 

This article will detail what each of those modules entails, why some are occasionally grayed out, and how to change these options for your organization.

Explaining the Module Options Dropdown Menu

undefined

Platform - This is the main ThreatLocker Platform. This option is required and unable to be turned off. It will be continuously gray. 

Application Control - Our primary module which houses Allowlisting, including policy creation. This is the foundation module inside our platform and should always be selected except in very rare circumstances. 

Storage Control - Storage Control is an optional module that allows you to customize whether a user can access distinct types of storage such as USB drives, network shares, and local folders. Additionally, you can configure Storage Control to only allow specific interfaces to access particular file paths. 

Elevation - Elevation is an optional module that will allow you determine which programs and users should have access to run programs as administrators within a defined time period.  

Cyber Hero Management - This is an optional module that sends your application approval requests to the Cyber Hero team for processing on your behalf. 

Network Control - The optional Network Control (previously Network Access Control) module allows total control of inbound traffic based on IP addresses, specific key words, and/or objects to your protected devices between a server and client connection. 

Default Deny - This option enables the Default Deny policy for Application Control. While it is optional, deselecting it will cancel the Default Deny and put your organization at greater risk.

Ringfencing - Our optional Ringfencing module allows you the ability to specify what an application can or cannot interact with (i.e., other applications, your files, the internet, the registry, etc.). 

Co-Managed Direct Support - With this option, child organization administrators will have direct access to ThreatLocker Cyber Hero Support. 

ThirdWall (Legacy)- This option, exclusively available to MSPs, allows for simplified policy creation to further lock down your endpoints. 

ThreatLocker Ops - This option (not yet released as of April 2023) will allow a policy to detect and trigger a response. This allows for notifications of blocked threat actors and automated response to threats. 

Configuration Management - This option (not yet released as of April 2023) will allow for simplified policy creation to further lock down your endpoints. 

Application Audit and Storage Audit - these are legacy feaures and are no longer available to our clients. These options will be continuously gray.
