Solution Overview

WWT's ATC Tanium Proving Ground Lab exists to provide a unified solution built around relevant use cases. It seeks to showcase an architecture that solves the business problems our customers are currently facing, including patch management, threat detection, asset management, software license reclamation and continuous compliance.

This lab consists of several servers running Tanium 7.4, Splunk and Nessus, as well as a number of user workstations. All Tanium modules are configured to show functionality. In addition, Splunk is used to show how Tanium data exports can be used to create valuable insights. 

You will access the environment using a Windows-based jumphost from which you can browse web consoles, open RDP/SSH sessions, etc. (see topology).
