Scalable, responsive management and protection of dynamic cloud-based infrastructure

Elsevier’s transition from traditional data centers and on premises applications to an agile, hybrid cloud infrastructure powers the company’s digital transformation and sustains a continuous pipeline of new products, leveraging multiple cloud environments to deliver greater scale and agility.

Managing thousands of transitory, virtual server instances

The need to constantly spin up thousands of servers, sometimes for only a few hours, requires incredible control on a daunting scale. Before Tanium, managing, tracking and controlling the software, licensing and patch levels for these often transitory server instances was enormously complex.

Security at scale

To manage its highly ephemeral virtual environment, Elsevier implemented a suite of Tanium products to bring visibility and control to its vast and dynamic pool of virtual servers. The Tanium Platform helps the Elsevier security team rapidly identify vulnerabilities across cloud endpoints and take immediate action to eliminate the exposure.

Visibility and control over a vast and volatile environment

Insights offered by the Tanium Platform have uncovered several opportunities for enhancing the performance of Elsevier’s cloud operations, such as highlighting underutilized stored data or software assets nearing end of life. With Tanium, the company now has a detailed map of its applications, devices, and cloud endpoints.
