6 Tanium Features And Partnerships Unveiled At Converge 2020
From quantifying endpoint risk to debuting a cloud-hosted platform to forging partnerships with some of the most prestigious IT vendors in the world, here’s a look at six interesting things coming out of Tanium Converge 2020.
3. IBM Collaboration
IBM has consultants throughout the world, a phenomenal cloud environments and capabilities spanning from IT deployments to incident response, making them the perfect candidate for a deeper partnership, Hallenbeck said. COVID has made it more relevant than ever for organizations to get insight not only into their on-premise systems or laptops but also their cloud environments, according to Hallenbeck.
IBM was historically a rival of Tanium’s, but Big Blue’s sale of BigFix to HCL Technologies in July 2019 as part of a $1.8 billion transaction removed the competition element, causing both sides to start looking at partnership opportunities, according to Hallenbeck. If IBM were still a competitor, he said it would have taken longer to figure out how and where to partner, though it would have eventually happened.
Right now, Hallenbeck said customers point Tanium toward systems in their environment by deploying agents or by using an API to connect to another layer of assets within an organization. But by integrating with IBM Cloud, Hallenbeck said Tanium’s technology will be able to more easily reach cloud customers of Big Blue.
