Tanium's Global Expansion Boosts Cyber Security in Australia

Empowering organisations including the Department of Defence and GenesisCare to manage and protect their mission-critical networks

Melbourne, Australia, 11 November 2020 – Tanium, the provider of unified endpoint management and security built for the world’s most demanding IT environments, today announced that it is working with organisations including the Australian Government Department of Defence and GenesisCare, a leading provider of oncology and cardiology treatments in Australia, as it continues to expand into the region with sales and support teams.

“For GenesisCare, the security of our patient data is essential. As cyber threats increase in our rapidly evolving digital world, we know that we have a responsibility to gain real time visibility of our endpoints and real time awareness of threats. Tanium has given us the ability to reduce vulnerabilities by quickly discovering and taking control of our hardware and software assets with zero-infrastructure. With Tanium, we can be confident that we are continuing to not just provide the best healthcare for Australians, but we are providing best in class care for patient data and our business continuity,” said GenesisCare’s Head of Information Security, Mike Kleviansky.

“Undergoing treatment for cancer or heart disease can take a huge toll on people’s mental health. It is a time when people need the most caring and respectful support from the organisations around them. This extends to the care and protection of their private Information—from the time it enters the system and at all times after that. Having real time visibility and protection of endpoints is simply part of the care and respect every health care provider needs to support their patients,” said Kleviansky.

“At a time where cyber security is critical, with research showing that 90% more cyberattacks than usual were reported in the first two months of the COVID-19 pandemic, our work helping organisations gain visibility and control of their endpoints is more vital than ever,” said Armando Dacal, VP APAC at Tanium. “Tanium transforms how organisations manage and secure their endpoint devices including laptops, servers, virtual machines, containers and cloud infrastructure. With the speed, scale and simplicity of Tanium’s platform, IT security and operations teams now have accurate information on the state of endpoints to more effectively protect against modern-day disruption and cyber threats.”

When it comes to protecting the information and safety of Australians, good IT hygiene is vital.

“As Australia progresses its work to protect the nation with its Cyber Security Strategy 2020, we look forward to working with more organisations to support them to be safe and secure as they embrace a digital future,” Armando said.

Worldwide companies such as half of the global Fortune 100 and all branches of the US Armed Forces trust Tanium to make confident decisions, operate efficiently and remain resilient against disruptions. The IT security and operations management company is valued at over US$9 billion dollars.

Tanium is on a mission to empower the world’s largest organisations to manage and protect their mission-critical networks. This has always been the vision of father–son founders David and Orion Hindawi. Tanium is excited to support organisations and governments across the world and in particular in Australia, where cyber security and gaining real-time visibility of endpoints is a high priority.
