2. Rewritten Underlying Protocol For Core Platform

The entire underlying communication protocol in Tanium has been rewritten to better secure devices that are not on a traditional corporate network such as remote and disconnected devices as well as cloud-hosted workloads, Constantine said. Specifically, Constantine said the new protocol turns on by default encryption of each component as well as encryption key rotation.

Tanium’s previous protocol had been in place for eight years and was pretty rigidly defined, while the company’s new protocol is both extensible and upgradable while still maintaining backwards compatibility, Constantine said. A fair amount of work went into restructuring the protocol in such a way that allows for future enhancements, according to Constantine.

As a result, Constantine said customers will be able to move away from a somewhat manual key rotation process to a fully automated one. And making end-to-end encryption the default rather than a configurable option is particularly vital given the increased use of remote workers and remote workforces, Constantine said.
