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.
1. Tanium Risk
Tanium has unique insight into everything that’s happening on the endpoint such as how many unpatched assets exist and where vulnerabilities are, Hallenbeck said. Businesses have often overlooked unmanaged machines such as IoT devices – which can compromise 15-to-20 percent of all IT assets – since they’re not under the purview of patch management tools, which Hallenbeck said introduces risk.
Tanium Risk gives customers insight into how their endpoints are operating by providing them with a score that contextualizes how secure the company’s IT assets are, Hallenbeck said. The tool is expected to be released in spring 2021, and Hallenbeck said organizations can adjust their risk score by noting issues they don’t feel are worth the cost of remediating such as vulnerabilities behind a patched firewall.
Down the road, Hallenbeck said Tanium hopes to be able to compare an organization’s risk score with that of peers who have a similar vertical focus or company size. The risk score has key metrics across operational, security and regulatory domains to assess business continuity, endpoint configuration and vulnerabilities, and the mapping of technical controls to desired cybersecurity frameworks.
