VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), a global leader in cloud infrastructure and business mobility, and Tanium, the company that redefined endpoint security and systems management, today announced a new endpoint security solution, VMware TrustPoint™. VMware TrustPoint combines the speed and scale of Tanium’s endpoint security platform with VMware’s layered OS migration technology, to deliver an integrated solution for unified endpoint management and security. VMware TrustPoint will enable rapid visibility and control of every endpoint across global networks, next-generation threat detection and remediation, endpoint and application management, and automated Windows image migration and management.
“Tanium has invented a highly innovative approach to endpoint management and security that offers speed and scalability that is suited for mobile and cloud computing,” said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing and head of Global Marketing, VMware. “By integrating it with VMware’s innovative layered OS migration technology, we can help companies modernize their corporate endpoints as they embark on their business mobility journey. We look forward to the continued collaboration that will bring the best combination of Tanium and VMware products to mutual customers and partners.”
“Most security solutions on the market now were created before the invention of mobility, cloud computing, and virtualization,” said Orion Hindawi, co-founder and chief executive officer, Tanium. “VMware TrustPoint powered by Tanium is the only approach to endpoint security that provides visibility in 15 seconds and control at the speed and scale of today’s dynamic environments. No one else comes close.”
VMware TrustPoint – Endpoint Security and Management Redefined
VMware TrustPoint powered by Tanium, uses patented linear-chaining architecture technology to enable IT operation and security teams to gain rapid visibility into all information and behaviors on endpoints across global networks. In addition, business and IT teams can use natural language search to retrieve accurate and complete data about their computing environments.
To maximize security hygiene, VMware TrustPoint’s Image Service technology can accelerate the adoption of Windows 10 for improved endpoint security. The solution can mitigate the complex process of upgrading and managing devices and applications through automated Windows migration where a single technician can concurrently handle 100 or more migrations from a central management console.
The solution also helps detect hidden, unmanaged assets across large distributed global networks quickly with minimal impact on the WAN. Once unmanaged assets are detected and identified, administrators can block them from the environment to maintain a secure network and bring the assets under control so every connected device is accounted for and in compliance with corporate security policies.
According to industry analyst firm, Gartner, “Security organizations must assume they are compromised, and, therefore, invest in detective capabilities that provide continuous monitoring for patterns and behaviors indicative of malicious intent.”(1)
The world of endpoint security and endpoint management is converging. Combining endpoint security and automated Windows image migration into a single solution, VMware TrustPoint can help IT administrators provide improved security with better endpoint hygiene, real time threat detection, and incident response and remediation. With Windows 10 accelerating the replacement of legacy client management tools, VMware will offer a complete portfolio of unified endpoint management solutions with VMware TrustPoint for endpoint security and VMware AirWatch® for endpoint management.
VMware has been leveraging Tanium internally to provide real-time insight and remediation capabilities throughout the organization.

VMware TrustPoint is expected to be available this quarter in the U.S. and in additional regions later this year. The solution is priced at $75 per device for a perpetual license. For more information, please contact VMware sales.
