The Tanium Building Blocks


This video introduces you to the eight primary building blocks of Tanium. We group these eight building blocks into three categories: content associated with retrieving data from endpoints, content associated with organizing endpoints, and content associated with sending instructions to endpoints.

One of the most powerful attributes of Tanium is its ability to perform endpoint functions across many domains, such as security, IT operations and asset management. This means that the platform often acts as a Swiss army knife, performing different functions for different situations. Fortunately, the architecture under the hood is very consistent. All Tanium modules use the same underlying mechanisms to accomplish their workflows. In this video, we dive into the primary building blocks that make up the various Tanium modules and workflows. By understanding the eight building blocks described in this video, you will have a better understanding of how Tanium accomplishes its diverse set of functions.
