Tanium, backed by the likes of Andreessen Horowitz, TPG Capital & Citi Ventures, adopts a unique technology that provides visibility and control of network endpoints across an enterprise in 15 seconds

California-based Tanium is an endpoint security and systems management company founded by the father-son duo, David Hindawi and Orion Hindawi. The company, started in 2007, stands out in adopting a unique technology that provides visibility and control of network endpoints across an enterprise in 15 seconds

The company currently offers four solutions; firstly, IT operations management, with which IT teams can secure critical endpoint data and fix outages, push changes to endpoints at scale and consolidate a mixture of IT tools. Secondly, with increasing consumption of software, hardware and cloud-based services by companies, to grow their business and innovate, comes the challenge of keeping track of its assets, leading to higher software and server spends. To tackle this, its IT Asset Visibility Solution discovers IT assets quickly and helps companies gather live endpoint date to create an updated global inventory of all their hardware and software assets. Thirdly, it offers security hygiene, discovering unmanaged assets, locating unauthorized software, fixing local admin privileges and rectifying ad-hoc vulnerabilities (amidst more services). Lastly, with evidence that today companies face challenges pertaining to incomplete investigations due to lack of accurate data across endpoints, teams being overburdened with alerts which they can’t prioritize, lack of proper remediation and, security and IT teams operating in silos (causing difficulty in enforcing ongoing IT security), there is a dire need for bridging these gaps and creating a holistic, well connected endpoint security process. This is what its Endpoint Detection and Response Solution does; allowing 15 second visibility for faster threat detection, 15 second control at scale so that remediation is faster and successful, and shared visibility across IT and security teams, to name a few.

Tanium’s solutions are adopted by a good share of the Fortune 500 companies globally, across sectors such as financial services, healthcare, retail and Government. The company, since founding, has raised over US $5 billion in funding, across eight rounds, from notable investors such as TPG Growth, Geodesic Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, Franklin Templeton Investments, Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), Citi Ventures and T. Rowe Price.
