Tanium Unveils Groundbreaking Integration with Microsoft Sentinel
September 2022 by Marc Jacob
Tanium announced the first of several powerful integrations between Microsoft and the Tanium XEM platform. The integration marks the latest expansion in a relationship that includes Tanium’s membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) and its availability in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
By making Tanium’s rich, real-time endpoint data accessible directly from the Sentinel console, the integration enables IT organisations to comprehensively detect, investigate, triage, prioritise, and remediate threats automatically, extending Sentinel’s advanced security and analytics capabilities, reducing the number of false positives that require disposition, and allowing security practitioners to better identify threats that might otherwise be missed.
The Tanium integration with Sentinel also enables active threat hunting. With Tanium’s detailed real-time data taken directly from the endpoint, security practitioners are better able to contextualise and correlate alerts sourced from both Microsoft and Tanium with almost no delay across an entire IT environment. They get accurate real-time data rather than information that may no longer be correct as a result of inherent latency. Additionally, Tanium gives incident responders the ability to take immediate action on alerts as they happen including quarantining a device, deploying a patch, or updating software, all from the Sentinel console. Customers benefit from proactive, predictive, automated management of their entire IT stack.
Tanium + Sentinel gives Microsoft customers the ability to monitor and ensure their Microsoft’s solutions are highly available and operate at optimal health. With its real-time distributed architecture, Tanium can independently verify that all Microsoft services are deployed and up-to-date and validate that it is fully performant on every endpoint. If needed, customers can easily deploy a patch or quarantine a device in seconds to ensure they get the most out of their Microsoft investments.
In addition to joining MISA, Tanium is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. Customers can purchase and provision Tanium directly from the marketplace and apply the purchase to their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitments (MACC).
Tune in now to hear Tanium CEO Orion Hindawi and Microsoft Corporate VP of Cybersecurity Ann Johnson discuss the vision for the partnership and how Tanium’s real-time data and control can enhance security, performance, and automation for today’s growing enterprises.
