Describe your company's current technology and solutions
With Tanium, organizations can accomplish key use cases for asset inventory, patching, config management, performance monitoring, and software management across end-user, cloud, and datacenter systems - all at massive scale.

For enterprises and government agencies looking to reduce their attack surface and fortify endpoints, Tanium provides Unified Endpoint Management and Security that is fast and scalable, based on a modern, patented architecture. Organizations can accomplish most key use cases for endpoint detection and response, sensitive data discovery and vulnerability and configuration management.

Unlike legacy tools and narrow point solutions Tanium provides complete, accurate data in near real-time and powerful and flexible remediation capabilities at any scale.

Are you aware of any current government challenges or opportunities that would be addressed by using your technology solution? Or a future need you can identify?
The move to working from home has presented new challenges around managing and securing IT assets that are now living on a full-time basis outside of the corporate network. Basic security and maintenance functions such as patching systems, supporting users, and deploying software and responding to incidents are increasingly difficult with existing tools.

Tanium software is able to manage and secure IT assets wherever they are, at home, on-premise, or in cloud. For a list of specific use cases, please refer to our WFH web portal at: https://community.tanium.com/s/wfh

As the COVID crisis continues, please describe specific opportunities where your technology might support Canadian needs / government needs
Maintaining visibility and control of IT assets regardless of where they are physically located is a critical gap that Tanium is able to solve. Providing flexibility to governments around securing and managing IT assets as the physical location of their employees is a key capability that Tanium is able to provide. We currently provide this capability to over 50% of Fortune 100 companies, the US military, and Canadian financial institutions.
