Our Vision:

To be the platform that every enterprise on the
planet will use to communicate with every IT
asset they own in seconds.

The Tanium Story


Two technology visionaries, inventors and entrepreneurs. A father and son. As founders of BigFix, David and Orion Hindawi have been working on the endpoint problem for the past 18 years: to invent a system that doesn’t slow down as it scales. Even across the world’s largest networks. Even across millions of endpoints.

We assembled a team of the smartest people with the deepest expertise in the market. We started with a blank sheet of paper, and with the team’s collective wisdom and experience. We spent five years developing the platform to make sure the technology would scale in the largest global networks.


Today, our platform is being used by the world’s largest organizations. For the first time, IT has 15-second visibility and control over every endpoint, even across the largest and most complex global networks. With this new level of visibility and control, new things are possible for IT.

We have over 400 of the smartest, most capable, experienced people on the Tanium team. We hire rock stars in every role. We are all on a singular mission to transform markets desperately in need of invention and solve previously unsolvable problems for our customers. And the future…well, we’re just getting started.
