Great inventory tool that that scans well for vulnerabilities and offers minimal end-user disruption

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for inventory and incident response for the most part.

Pros and Cons

  • "For incident response tasks, all these tasks can get done in minutes with minimal disruption to the end-user."
  • "The solution can give a lot of false positives."

What other advice do I have?

I'm a customer and end-user. We are using the most current version of the solution in our organization at this time. I'm not sure how the solution is typically deployed. It's great for inventory and even incident response. It's right up there with some other top-notch products. However, in terms of the implementation, getting everything on board, all that sort of thing, a company initially setting it up is going to need help troubleshooting. I would advise a company takes the time to definitely engage with some sort of professional services. It's going to be required. I'd rate the solution…

Offers privileged features and has fast asset discovery

What is our primary use case?

We also use BigFix. Our primary use case for Tanium is for tool consolidation. Tanium is already equipped with multiple capabilities that BigFix has. These are almost parallel tools, running with similar kinds of capabilities. We are planning to flip to Tanium, which might primarily be used as a management solution. Overall, we use Tanium to interact and discover related queries. It is also used as our system information and event management tool.

Pros and Cons

  • "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 checking the available features."
  • "Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that are obviously agent-based."

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 to plan your implementation and leverage its available features. It is very fast. Asset discovery is also very fast. I would rate Tanium a nine out of ten. Most of the time, agent-relative issues have to be more equipped with self-healing features. At times, the agent is there, but for some reason, it doesn't report a status. It gives certain problems that…

Great security features but the solution lacks mobility

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for endpoint protection and, more particularly, the patching. We are integrators and customers of Tanium and I'm a channel director.

Pros and Cons

  • "The security features are very valuable."
  • "The solution lacks mobility."

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 would rate this solution a seven out of 10.
