The Problem with Traditional Configuration Management Tools

Traditional configuration management tools:

  • Were designed for simpler environments, homogenous devices, and on-prem connections.
  • Often lack granular, specific controls, and force admins to rely on broadly defined policies.
  • Use a “spray and pray” approach, and send out policies without knowing if they were actually applied.

Traditional configuration management tools cannot reliably present the configuration status of all of your endpoints, and are often unable to define and enforce diverse policies across the environment.

What Tomorrow Looks Like With Tanium

With Tanium, establish standardized configurations across your endpoints in the environment.

Tanium will meaningfully transform your operational and security risk posture. You will develop a comprehensive picture of your endpoint environment, and deploy tools to remediate misconfigurations or conflicts.
