Singapore, 16 July 2019 – Today, PwC and Tanium announce a strategic partnership in Singapore that will bring together PwC’s deep expertise in cybersecurity and digital transformation together with Tanium’s endpoint IT security and operations platform. This partnership will help businesses gain near real-time endpoint visibility and make timely and confident business decisions in response.
The Tanium platform provides security and IT operations teams with accurate endpoint data, even across the largest and most complex networks. The partnership between PwC and Tanium will not only help organisations manage cyber threats, but also help clients gain valuable insights into endpoints, whether it’s laptops, servers, virtual machines, containers, or cloud infrastructure.
Through the improved visibility of endpoints using Tanium, organisations will also be able to better manage procurement and compliance of licences as well as enhance governance of data stored in endpoints. PwC’s breadth of expertise in digital transformation will provide any organisation seeking to adopt Tanium with end-to-end support across competencies such as change management, upskilling, best practices, governance frameworks and technology implementation.
A study by the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore anticipated six upcoming trends in Singapore which include more frequent data breaches, increased threat to global supply chains and more disruptive attacks against the cloud. Against the backdrop of increasingly frequent and sophisticated cyberattacks, Singapore’s cybersecurity landscape must continue to evolve and this partnership is a welcome boost to the cybersecurity ecosystem in Singapore.
Tan Shong Ye, Digital Trust Leader, PwC Singapore says: “We are proud to be working with Tanium to enhance our capabilities as PwC as we bring cyber threat hunting into our suite of service offerings. Tanium’s technology, coupled with the breadth of industry expertise of our cybersecurity practice, will empower organisations to better assess, identify and manage the threats and vulnerabilities they face on a daily basis.”
Freddy Wee, Cybersecurity and Privacy Leader, PwC South East Asia Consulting said:
“For any system adoption to be successful, organisations must keep in mind that the investment is not just in the technology - it includes training the people and ironing out the processes surrounding the use of the system. Working together with Tanium, we are confident that we can help organisations successfully optimise endpoint management and fulfil their security objectives.”
Tom Herrmann, Vice President of Global Alliances and Channel at Tanium said:
“PwC has been a valued partner of Tanium for over five years and we are thrilled to expand our partnership across Singapore. This is an important step in our relationship together, as it means that our work is now truly global – giving us coverage across North America, Europe and Asia. Our technology, coupled with the industry expertise from PwC, will continue to provide our customers with the power to manage cyber threats and gain a comprehensive overview of their endpoints.”
