Forescout and Tanium Join Forces to Provide the Industry’s First Real-Time Cybersecurity Platform

SAN JOSE, Calif. and KIRKLAND, WA, October 21, 2021 – Forescout, the leader in Enterprise of Things security, and Tanium, provider of endpoint management and security built for the world’s most demanding IT environments, today announced a strategic partnership to drive a fundamental shift in the cybersecurity industry by introducing a new paradigm for real-time visibility and control across the extended enterprise: campus, datacenter, remote workers, cloud, mobile, OT and IoT.

The continued rise in severity and number of cyberattacks has shown that current security controls are insufficient to protect most organizations. Legacy solutions and security approaches have not kept up with broader trends in the industry: sophisticated adversaries are targeting increasingly complex, heterogenous compute environments while security teams are inundated by incidents and false positives that they cannot triage.

By combining industry leading endpoint and network solutions, Tanium and Forescout are pioneering a cybersecurity platform that provides visibility and control in real-time, at the edge, across all enterprise-connected devices. An integration is in the planning stages for release later this year and will provide the following proactive capabilities to meaningfully reduce an organization’s attack surface and comprehensively respond to threats and attacks as they happen.

  • Comprehensive, real-time asset discovery and inventory: Customers to achieve a complete 360-degree view of their enterprise environment by combining centralized network visibility and distributed endpoint visibility.
  • Attack surface management: Real-time risk assessment and remediation of endpoint posture to harden devices, along with segmentation policies to enforce least-privilege network connectivity that enables a true Zero Trust architecture.
  • Rapid visibility and control: Automatically assess posture and enforce compliance, identify known vulnerabilities and indicators of compromise, quarantine at-risk devices, remediate problems, and allow endpoints back onto the network with appropriate network segmentation policies, all enforced from a single platform. From comply to connect without ever losing context.
