The University of Salford Finds and Closes Hundreds of Thousands of Endpoint Vulnerabilities

“If we hadn’t invested in Tanium, we’d lack complete visibility into our assets and still have hundreds of thousands of missing critical patches. It would only be a matter of time before we were targeted by cyber criminals and potentially put in a really difficult position.”

Mark Wantling CIO, University of Salford

The Most Technically Demanding Organizations Trust Tanium

The visibility we gained with Tanium was incredibly impressive. Classifying inventory and discovering IoT devices has been made possible.

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.

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.
