What is most valuable?

I'm not so familiar with the tool but I like the interaction of the console to the picture. Patching is the primary model I have been focusing on for the last couple of weeks. So I have created a proof of concept environment and have been… more »

What needs improvement?

Tanium comes with multiple models, so definitely the threat protection is the primary opportunity area my organization is looking for. It is going to be primarily used for event collection, which is being fed into our centralized tools for… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

From a licensing perspective, it is a bit expensive if I do compare them with basic settings. It is nearly two or two and a half times more expensive.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Tanium has certain privileged features compared to BigFix. It has offline patching.

What other advice do I have?

From a tool perspective, it is capable. I do not want to comment on how efficient it is because ultimately, I'm not aware of its capability. My opinion is that it is definitely a capable tool and it all depends on planning. It's about how… more »

What is most valuable?

Being able to go as granular while looking at our network and users. Also, getting as much detailed information on analytics, which is good.

How has it helped my organization?

Tanium has made the process of detecting threats more proactive with its detection. So, the process is easier and more efficient. The solution has helped to increase staff productivity. It has made the process a lot quicker.

What needs improvement?

* I would like to have more integrations and custom plugins to input. Integration is always a big deal in a lot of different environments. * Custom modules would be nice. * Visualization of data could be added to it. * Making the initial… more »

What other advice do I have?

We use it pretty regularly on quite a large scale. I don't think I've heard anyone have any major complaints so far, just the little things. We have been growing quite a bit, so we have been trying out bigger solutions. From a maturity… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We look at what holes that we have in our system. The landscape is changing, and we look at what we could add to help improve detection and improve the visibility into our network more. So, based off of that, the team evaluates new products… more »

What is most valuable?

The security features are very valuable to us as is the fact that the solution is easy to use with a quick implementation time.

What needs improvement?

Our biggest issue with the solution is its lack of mobility. Also, when it comes to deploying the SaaS, it's more difficult to deploy on-prem.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used SCCM and we moved to Tanium because of the number of platforms we can manage with Tanium which is much greater than SCCM offers. SCCM is only Microsoft and we needed to cover all the platforms such as Linux as well as others.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the solution for what it is, but not for what it is not. It's actually lacking one major feature and that is mobility which is very important. The lack of this software is why I wouldn't recommend Tanium but in terms of security, deployment and installation, the solution is fine. I… more »
