Tanium Named a Finalist in the 2022 CISO Choice Awards

Converged Endpoint Management platform a clear leader in endpoint security for standout performance and proven capabilities in protection against cyber threats

KIRKLAND, Wash., Oct. 12, 2022 – Tanium, the industry’s only provider of converged endpoint management (XEM), today announced it has been selected as a finalist in the CISO Choice Awards™ 2022, a first-of-its-kind award, with a board of CISO judges selecting security companies based on real-world perspectives.  

The CISO Choice Awards 2022 recognizes leaders in key technology and business categories, and the Tanium XEM platform was selected for its leadership in endpoint security. Tanium XEM unifies teams and workflows and protects every endpoint from cyber threats by integrating IT, Risk and Compliance, and Security into a single platform. It complements anti-malware solutions with its visibility, management, and remediation capabilities – all in real time.  

“Companies spend >$160BN on point solutions that don’t improve cybersecurity, and CIOs have millions of globally distributed assets they need to see and act upon in real time,” said Tanium CMO Steve Daheb. “Disparate point solutions make it difficult to collect, assess, and act on data across operations and security. Tanium solves this problem by delivering up-to-the-minute visibility and control for every endpoint—across users, clouds, IoT devices—enabling CISOs to see instantly whether hundreds of thousands of assets are installed, configured, patched, and used according to their policies.”  

The specialized tools security vendors have been selling for the past two decades don’t provide the type of holistic risk management and resilience needed to protect against today’s relentless cyber threats. With XEM, Tanium has established an entirely new approach to address some of the most significant technology challenges organizations face today by offering a converged platform that provides industry-leading visibility to real-time endpoint data with advance security remediation, whether on-prem or in the cloud.

“Additional solutions are often required to remediate vulnerabilities or respond to incidents—adding to IT complexity and cost,” said Nic Surpatanu, chief product officer at Tanium. “XEM enables CISOs to mitigate risk and reduce costs while allowing customers to defend against attack surface proliferation and protect critical information and infrastructure. The convergence of real-time decision making, management, and remediation we offer uses a single pane of glass for one shared source of truth, a unified set of controls, and a common taxonomy that brings together siloed teams from across an organization.”  

As technical debt continues to run rampant through customer IT estates, Tanium XEM brings stability to the myriad of point solutions, flawed processes, and failed outcomes currently in use. XEM makes business insight readily available, reducing time to incident resolution, decreasing shelfware, and mitigating organizational downtime risk.

XEM utilizes a patented linear-chain architecture, providing cyber defense at scale, and a fully extensible data model with the ability to customize Tanium in any environment and with any desired integration among existing tools. The lightweight, performant Tanium single agent spans the breadth and depth of all XEM platform capabilities.
