    From Ethical Hacking to Zero Trust: The Birth (and the future) of ThreatLocker

    Join Kevin Lancaster as he interviews Danny Jenkins of ThreatLocker to discuss how Jenkins created and owns the endpoint security category through continuous innovation. Jenkins discussed starting his tech career at age 15 through an apprenticeship with an early MSP, learning without modern tools.
    Jenkins founded ThreatLocker with a mission to "change the market, we're going to change the way that people think about endpoint security" by shifting the security paradigm to default deny. Despite initial skepticism, ThreatLocker's approach proved itself with the WannaCry attack. They now protect over 50,000 organizations through word-of-mouth referrals.
    Jenkins emphasizes the importance of understanding customer challenges through direct engagement and focusing on an excellent user experience while securing interactions with technology. To hear the full interview and discussion on ThreatLocker's journey and plans, listen to this episode of The Channel CEO podcast with Kevin Lancaster.
