- With the new integrations, Tanium’s real-time endpoint data will be available directly from the Microsoft Sentinel console.
- Using Tanium’s detailed real-time data from endpoints, security professionals can put alerts from both Microsoft and Tanium in context and find connections across an entire IT environment.
Tanium Inc, a cybersecurity software provider, announced several integrations between Microsoft Corp and the Tanium XEM platform to improve security, performance, and automation at a large scale.
The new integrations are a part of a relationship that includes Tanium’s membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association. They will make Tanium’s real-time endpoint data available directly from the Microsoft Sentinel console.
The companies said that the integration would enable IT organizations to automatically find, investigate, triage, prioritize, and fix threats. In doing so, the integration expands Sentinel’s advanced security and analytics capabilities. This reduces the number of false positives that need to be fixed and helps security professionals spot threats they might have missed otherwise.
With the integration of Tanium and Sentinel, active threat hunting will also be possible. Using Tanium’s detailed real-time data from endpoints, security professionals can correlate alerts from both Microsoft and Tanium and find connections across an entire IT environment. When practitioners use the integration, they get accurate data in real-time instead of information that may no longer be correct because of a delay.
Also, the integration lets incident responders take immediate action on alerts as they happen, including putting a device in quarantine, deploying a patch, or updating software, all from the Sentinel console. This way, responders can lay access to a proactive, predictive, and automated IT stack.
Customers of Microsoft will be able to monitor and ensure that their Microsoft solutions are always available and running at their best. Tanium uses a real-time distributed architecture to check that all Microsoft services are installed, up-to-date, and valid on every endpoint.
Rob Jenks, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Tanium, said, “Already we work together to make Microsoft environments healthier and more secure by reducing risks for customers and protecting their investments in Azure. He added, “And soon, we’ll be releasing a series of powerful integrations with Microsoft tools in addition to our Sentinel Integration.”
Tanium is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and can also be directly purchased. Users can apply the purchase to their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitments.
