Cybersecurity software provider Tanium Inc. today announced several integrations between Microsoft Corp. and the Tanium XEM platform to deliver enhanced security, performance and automation at large scale.
The new integrations, part of a relationship that includes Tanium’s membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, will make Tanium’s real-time endpoint data accessible directly from the Microsoft Sentinel console.
The companies said the integration will enable information technology organizations to detect, investigate, triage, prioritize and remediate threats automatically. In doing so, the integration extends 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. Using Tanium’s detailed real-time data taken directly from endpoints, security practitioners can contextualize and correlate alerts sourced from both Microsoft and Tanium across an entire IT environment. Using the integration, practitioners get accurate real-time data rather than information that may no longer be correct because of inherent latency.
Additionally, the integration allows incident responders to take immediate action on alerts as they happen, including quarantining a device, deploying a patch, or updating software, all from the Sentinel console. That way, responders are delivered proactive, predictive and automated management of their entire IT stack.
For Microsoft customers, the integration delivers the ability to monitor and ensure their Microsoft solutions are highly available and operate at optimal health. With real-time distributed architecture, Tanium independently verifies that all Microsoft services are deployed, up-to-date and validated on every endpoint.
“Already we work together to make Microsoft environments healthier and more secure by reducing risks for customers and protecting their investments in Azure,” Rob Jenks, senior vice president of corporate strategy at Tanium, said in a statement. “And soon we’ll be releasing a series of powerful integrations with Microsoft tools in addition to our Sentinel Integration.”
Tanium is available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and can be purchased directly. Customers can apply the purchase to their Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitments.
