Creating Efficiencies That Save Tens of Thousands of Dollars

With over 20,000 endpoints across 300+ locations nationwide, AutoNation struggled to deploy critical patches and remediate incidents in a timely manner. Without needing additional resources, Tanium brought previously unthinkable efficiencies that ultimately saved AutoNation tens of thousands of dollars.

99% Patch Success Rate

Before Tanium, hundreds of thousands of patches had not been correctly applied and 91% of endpoints had an outdated version of Adobe Flash. With Tanium, patches are now deployed at a first pass success rate of over 99%.

Unparalleled Deployment Speed

Deploying a single patch used to take more than an hour and installing software across the entire network used to take several months. With Tanium, patch deployment is now done within minutes and new AV software was installed across 20,000 machines in only four days.

Real-Time Visibility into Compliance

AutoNation now has near real-time visibility into endpoints needed to determine compliance with auditors' ever-increasing regulatory requirements and can satisfy auditors’ requests in an instance.

Operating on a global scale provides a lot of challenges when it comes to knowing your environment. For the first time, we’ve been able to get a fast and accurate picture of our environment with Tanium.

Using Tanium, a team member asked ‘What machines are running Thunderbolt monitors?’ and got the answer back immediately. Leveraging Tanium, the team correlated the event of a specific monitor being plugged in with the network outage, which was the key data needed to isolate the issue with the display.

Our ability to respond to incidents was slower than we needed it to be. Tanium has made the team much faster.

Tanium is very good at answering very specific questions, being able to get the data back is so satisfying and raises the level of quality of the analyst data.

Before Tanium we were always behind the curve with virus definitions. We were always playing catch up. It wasn’t unusual for 5–10% of our devices to be out of compliance with our policy. Once we deployed Tanium, our average went down to less than 1% almost overnight.
