Too Many Tools…Not Enough Staff (Tanium to the Rescue)
Show Notes

If you are in and around the technology sector, you hear about two things every day.   Another technology hack and a shortage in IT staff. The third thing you hear about is another tool to help you solve problems, which leads to what we call “tool sprawl.” You have never-ending security threats which are the result of unmanaged infrastructure because of lack of staff and more tools than people in a lot of companies. The end result is a mess and a bad one. 

Today’s discussion will be centered around a way to get started to bring some normalcy to the IT Security/Operations (SecOps) issue.  We’ll introduce you to Tanium, which is a “Swiss Army Knife” that can end tool sprawl and allow you to regain control. Tanium calls it the power of certainty.
