KIRKLAND, Wash., June 27, 2024Tanium, the industry’s leading provider of Converged Endpoint Management (XEM), today announced it is once again a recipient of the Microsoft Partner of the Year Award, this time in the prestigious 2024 Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Innovation category. The award recognizes Tanium for its innovation using Microsoft Copilot AI and Cloud advanced services, and for introducing new techniques, approaches, and applications that push the boundaries of what is currently possible. Tanium recently announced their partnership with Microsoft Copilot for Security to provide security teams with an autonomous-driven edge. Tanium’s real-time endpoint data, a critical enabler for AI, is integrated into Microsoft’s Copilot for Security, an OpenAI-powered product. Security professionals from leading companies like AstraZeneca and JLL are already seeing the benefit from access to real-time visibility and AI-driven cybersecurity. With Microsoft and Tanium, customers more quickly respond to threats and can evaluate and act on risk exposure in minutes.

“One key aspect of Tanium and Microsoft working together is automation,” said Jeff Haskill, VP of enterprise technology services, AstraZeneca. “We can detect anything in our environment and then – seamlessly and without human intervention – shut it down.”

Tanium has also been named a finalist in the Microsoft Commercial Marketplace categories for Global and Americas regions. These awards recognize the top three partners in their respective category.

“Tanium’s real-time endpoint intelligence is the driving force that allows customers to leverage AI to quickly identify risks, investigate incidents and accelerate response. This significantly reduces incident workload, addresses resource constraints while also mitigating risks faster,” said Rob Jenks, Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, at Tanium. “It’s an honor to again receive a partner award that celebrates our joint product innovation, solutions that significantly improve our customer’s security posture. We are excited to continue our partnership with Microsoft to bring organizational resiliency with unmatched speed, accuracy, and usability for security teams.”
