Tanium Recognized as an Outperformer in the GigaOm Radar Report for Patch Management Solutions

Competitive ranking shows Tanium leading the pack with exceptional patch capabilities

KIRKLAND, Wash., November 10, 2022 – Tanium, the industry’s only provider of converged endpoint management (XEM), today announced that it has been recognized as a leader and outperformer in the newly released GigaOm Radar for Patch Management Solutions. 

The report provides a forward-looking analysis that plots the relative value and progression of vendor solutions along multiple axes based on strategy and execution, including a breakdown of each vendor’s offering in the sector. It focuses on patch management, the process used to identify, acquire, verify, and install patches to physical and virtual devices and software systems.  

“Patch management has become an increasingly complex and difficult process due to the number of new intrusion vectors now available to attackers and the integration problems stemming from siloed operations across many organizations,” said Nic Surpatanu, chief product officer at Tanium. “Our unique approach provides industry-leading visibility combined with the ability to remediate with real-time patch deployment. We are proud to continue to earn recognition for our award-winning XEM platform and our industry-leading patch solution.”

GigaOm rates Tanium’s patch capabilities as “exceptional, with outstanding focus and execution” for all market segments, deployment models, evaluation metrics, and patch management coverage areas across different operating systems. The report also scores Tanium’s automation capabilities as “excellent, allowing easy script creation, testing, and deployment.”  

“Tanium Patch is a strong asset in a very strong package of endpoint management and security tools. Patch coverage includes almost any conceivable endpoint,” said GigaOm Analyst Ron Williams, author of the report. “The patch management module provides real-time data collection at an enterprise scale, giving security and IT operations teams access to accurate information on the state of endpoints. It provides full coverage of Windows, macOS, and Linux desktops and servers, as well as mobile and remote systems.” 

The report also notes that Tanium’s customer-management options are a good fit for large enterprises that prefer control over the entire platform, as well as small and midsize businesses and managed services providers.
