VMware, Tanium Unveil New Endpoint Security Solution

VMware, Inc., a provider of cloud infrastructure and business mobility, and Tanium, a provider of endpoint security and systems management, today announced a new endpoint security solution, VMware TrustPoint.

VMware TrustPoint combines the speed and scale of Tanium’s endpoint security platform with VMware’s layered OS migration technology, to deliver an integrated solution for unified endpoint management and security, said VMware.

VMware TrustPoint will enable rapid visibility and control of every endpoint across global networks, next-generation threat detection and remediation, endpoint and application management, and automated Windows image migration and management.

VMware TrustPoint powered by Tanium, uses patented linear-chaining architecture technology to enable IT operation and security teams to gain rapid visibility into all information and behaviors on endpoints across global networks. In addition, business and IT teams can use natural language search to retrieve accurate and complete data about their computing environments.

To maximize security hygiene, VMware TrustPoint’s Image Service technology can accelerate the adoption of Windows 10 for improved endpoint security. The solution can mitigate the complex process of upgrading and managing devices and applications through automated Windows migration where a single technician can concurrently handle 100 or more migrations from a central management console.

The solution also helps detect hidden, unmanaged assets across large distributed global networks quickly with minimal impact on the WAN. Once unmanaged assets are detected and identified, administrators can block them from the environment to maintain a secure network and bring the assets under control so every connected device is accounted for and in compliance with corporate security policies.

“Tanium has invented a highly innovative approach to endpoint management and security that offers speed and scalability that is suited for mobile and cloud computing,” said Sanjay Poonen, executive vice president and general manager, End-User Computing and head of Global Marketing, VMware.

 “By integrating it with VMware’s innovative layered OS migration technology, we can help companies modernize their corporate endpoints as they embark on their business mobility journey,” he added.
