How Tanium Helped the United States Navy Succeed

The Navy is joined by its fellow military branches – the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps – in taking new, innovative approaches to secure and manage their endpoints. As cyber threats advance at rapid speed, these agencies are staying a step ahead of attackers and continually hardening their networks, while simultaneously managing IT at a much lower cost. We’re proud to help our nation’s Armed Forces achieve their cyber defense goals.

Proud to Help Our Nation's Armed Forces Achieve Their Cyber Defense Goals

When it comes to cybersecurity, moving fast is crucial. Organizations need to be able to execute changes across their IT environment in seconds, even if that environment has millions of endpoints. The U.S. Department of Defense clearly recognizes this and is taking steps to make sure its IT teams have this capability.

Audit-Ready in Minutes, Not Months

Prior to Tanium, the Navy would spend months preparing compliance audits because existing technology could not collect accurate data across the millions of endpoints on the network. Now, the process takes minutes.

Separating Signal From Noise

One of the hardest things for a cyber defender is separating the noise from the signals indicating a serious attack. With Tanium's unprecedented visibility and speed, the Navy’s cyber defenders can now immediately spot intrusions that require their attention.

Attracting Top Talent

Some of the nation’s top tech talent has historically resisted coming into government because of its bureaucratic perception. Navy cyber teams are bucking this trend as they seek out best-in-class technology, adopting innovative solutions.

The Most Technically Demanding Organizations Trust Tanium

The visibility we gained with Tanium was incredibly impressive. Classifying inventory and discovering IoT devices has been made possible.

Operating on a global scale provides a lot of challenges when it comes to knowing your environment. For the first time, we’ve been able to get a fast and accurate picture of our environment with Tanium.

Using Tanium, a team member asked ‘What machines are running Thunderbolt monitors?’ and got the answer back immediately. Leveraging Tanium, the team correlated the event of a specific monitor being plugged in with the network outage, which was the key data needed to isolate the issue with the display.

Tanium is very good at answering very specific questions, being able to get the data back is so satisfying and raises the level of quality of the analyst data.

Before Tanium we were always behind the curve with virus definitions. We were always playing catch up. It wasn’t unusual for 5–10% of our devices to be out of compliance with our policy. Once we deployed Tanium, our average went down to less than 1% almost overnight.
