With 100,000 employees and 70 manufacturing and technology research centers around the globe, Whirlpool was unsatisfied with its security hygiene efforts. Before Tanium, security teams would manually pull a report from their antivirus tools, and send out emails asking people to update their systems. If the emails from Greg’s team went unanswered, the next step was to reach out to the local IT team to track the person down—but this only worked if the person was in the same office as the IT team.

Improved Incident Response Time and Coverage
Whirlpool now can automate the scan and remediation response to ensure updates are completed quickly.
The company has slashed incident response times since installing Tanium, improving the best case average discover period by 83% and response time by 99%.
