At Airlock Digital, we want to turn the security paradigm on its head, because we believe a fundamentally different approach  is needed to combat the risk posed by adversaries, such as cyber criminals and nation state attackers.

About 10 years the industry moved from a prevention to a detect and response mindset. Having decided that it’s too difficult to prevent attacks, there was push to detect, respond and remediate.

Most organisations find it extremely difficult to reduce the risk of intruders and we believe at Airlock we can reduce the risk of sophisticated threats towards zero.

Application whitelisting is considered one of, if not the most effective control in reducing the risk posed by targeted attacks and malware/ransomware. Even though most security experts agreed on the effectiveness of application whitelisting as a security control we continued to see organisation were reluctant to embark on implementing application whitelisting. This was primarily due the reputation the application whitelisting had as being resource intensive to manage and maintain.

Airlock Digital was started with a single goal. To develop a solution to allow organisations to implement application whitelisting at scale in dynamic computing environments utilising a simple, well defined, repeatable process.

Our platform provides a framework and workflow that greatly reduces the burden typically associated with application whitelisting whilst ensuring the integrity of the control is maintained
