Tanium - Endpoint management re-defined
How did your company get started?
Tanium founders, David & Orion Hindawi, founded the company to address a fundamental problem with the industry. No matter how many endpoint management and security tools that an organization uses, they still struggle to answer the most basic of questions:
- How many endpoints do we have?
- Where are they?
- Who's using them?
- What's running on them?
- Are they vulnerable?
- Is there sensitive data exposed?
Even if they could answer some of these questions, they typically don't have an effective way to remediate any issues when they find them. This results in a lack of confidence or trust in the data, which often leads to friction between IT operations and cybersecurity teams.
Tanium's XEM platform provides a single source of truth, and enables IT and cybersecurity leaders to gain more visibility over their enterprise wide endpoints, take more control of their endpoints, and drive faster remediation of vulnerabilities.
Tanium gives business leaders more confidence in critical decision making with real time, trusted data from their endpoints.
Why are you different?
The current approaches our industry has been pushing are flawed. Other IT security and management providers offer only a small piece of the solution required to protect our environments. They represent a patchwork of point solutions deployed across IT Operations, Security, Risk and Compliance groups. CIOs and CISOs are forced to buy tens of these different solutions, stitch them together themselves and make decisions based on data that is stale, inaccurate and incomplete. The reason why so many enterprises fall victim to ransomware attacks is that the tools they use are no match for the sophistication of attackers: tools are slow, unreliable and lack a common dataset to operate from. And they inherently create silos. Tanium is different. Tanium is a converged endpoint management and security platform based on 3 pillars: speedy, simplicity, and scale. Tanium enables real-time accurate visibility, more control, and faster remediation of risk on your endpoints.
