Tanium is a privately held endpoint security and systems management company based out of California. Tanium has been recognized as one of the top 10 private cloud companies in the world on Forbe’s annual Cloud 100, but what really sets Tanium apart from its competitors is the tools unique architecture. Tanium is a tool for nearly real-time management of clients and is currently used at many of the largest organizations that have millions of endpoints.
At the heart of Tanium’s software is the ability to rapidly reach all endpoints throughout an organization, which can speed up both security and IT management tasks. Tanium makes this work by organizing endpoints into linear chains in which they communicate peer to peer.
Tanium’s unique linear chain architecture is more efficient than hierarchical systems that require servers to check in with multiple clients out at the edge of the network. How Tanium organizes its linear chains of devices to deliver data as quickly as possible is part of the core technology that the company set out to create when it was founded in 2007.
The ability to rapidly poll and modify end systems can pay dividends in security, helping enterprises detect and eliminate threats without having to wade through lengthy investigations of all their clients, Tanium says. It can also make software updates easier by showing what version each system is running and then quickly applying updates or patches.
With over 27.6 million endpoints secured worldwide and over 50% of the Fortune 100 utilizing their products, Tanium’s Unified Endpoint Security replaces legacy endpoint protection tools with a streamlined and scalable solution.
