Big news out of Tanium…
They released a cybersecurity study today of more than 400 IT leaders at large enterprises, 67 percent of businesses say that driving collaboration between security and IT ops teams is a major challenge, which not only hampers team relationships, but also leaves organizations open to vulnerabilities. Over forty percent of businesses with strained relationships consider maintaining basic IT hygiene more of a challenge than those with good partnerships (32 percent). In fact, it takes teams with strained relationships nearly two weeks longer to patch IT vulnerabilities than teams with healthy relationships (37 business days versus 27.8 business days).
The study also found that increased investment in IT solutions has not translated to improved visibility of computing devices and has created false confidence among security and IT ops teams in the veracity of their endpoint management data.
Enterprises who reported budget increases said they have seen considerable additional investment in IT security (18.3 percent) and operations (10.9 percent) over the last two years, with teams procuring an average of five new tools over this same time period.
The study also showed that 71 percent of respondents struggle to gain end-to-end visibility of endpoints and their health, which could lead to consequences such as poor IT hygiene, limited agility to secure the business, vulnerability to cyber threats and collaboration between teams.
In addition, this $6.5B company that provides a unified endpoint management and security platform – just announced significant platform and portfolio enhancements reinforcing fundamental needs in speed, simplicity, and scale for endpoint management and security.
New Tanium features and benefits—engineered using direct input from customers and unveiled during Tanium’s annual CONVERGE conference today—include the following:
Tanium Core Platform 7.4, which includes numerous user-experience updates that allow security and operations practitioners to make decisions based on the rich data provided by Tanium, leverage updated Role-Based Access Control (RBAC), and enhance security to better support off-network and cloud-hosted instances.
New enhancements that enable better management of cloud endpoints, including visibility into unmanaged virtual machines in cloud environments, enriched asset inventory and reporting about cloud infrastructure, and immediate visibility into what virtual containers are running in public and private cloud deployments.
Enhanced support to configure, report, and enforce security and other configuration policies across a range of operating systems, including Windows and MacOS.
All of the enhancements announced today will be available to Tanium customers in early 2020.
“A majority of businesses struggle to gain end-to-end visibility of endpoints and the overall health of their IT systems. Without full visibility and control, IT teams leave themselves open to cyberattacks and other forms of disruption, and an overreliance on point products only adds to the problem,” said Pete Constantine, Tanium Chief Product Officer. “With the enhancements announced today, we further extend the Tanium platform to help solve our customers’ hardest IT challenges. We don’t compromise on speed, simplicity, or scale-even in the most complex technology environments.”
