The Problem with Traditional Vulnerability and Configuration Management Tools

Traditional vulnerability and configuration management tools:

  • Are too narrowly focused and require multiple siloed tools to cover all relevant standards.
  • Lack real-time visibility and require days or weeks to assess modern environments for issues.
  • Often lack remediation tools, requiring an additional set of tools to deal with issues identified.
  • Create a substantial amount of network load and bandwidth usage every time they run a scan.

Traditional vulnerability and configuration management tools do not present an accurate or actionable view of vulnerabilities and misconfigurations within the endpoint environment, leaving exploitable issues open for days, weeks, months or even longer.

Perform Fundamental Vulnerability and Configuration Management Actions from One Console

Tanium gives users a streamlined, intuitive console that lets them switch seamlessly between critical vulnerability and configuration management actions, accelerating and simplifying their workflows.

Vulnerability and Misconfiguration Assessments

Launch on-demand or recurring assessments of any segment of your endpoint environment – or of your Tanium-managed environment as a whole.

Remote Remediation and Control

Perform critical actions on any number of endpoints in your environment – remotely, with just one click – to help close the vulnerabilities and correct the misconfigurations you find.

Reporting and Audit Preparation
