Tanium’s fast-acting endpoint management tool grows up
A tool for nearly real-time management of clients like desktops, laptops and Windows tablets is now set to take on massive organizations that have millions of endpoints.
Tanium is software that can examine and modify all such clients across an enterprise within 15 seconds, according to the company. It’s already being used by customers with more than 500,000 endpoints, and the newly released Version 6.5 is designed to serve some of the world’s largest organizations, especially in the public sector, Tanium says.
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.
