Tanium, a unified endpoint management solutions provider, and Google Cloud together are delivering  a threat response offering built on the Chronicle security analytics platform.

The Tanium-Google Cloud offering helps organizations detect, investigate and evaluate advanced persistent threats (APTs), according to the companies. It provides a variety of security capabilities, including:

  • Analytics and Telemetry: Combines Tanium's real-time security telemetry with Chronicle's analytics and data capacity.
  • Threat Hunting: Enables security teams to hunt threats both live and across a year of endpoint activity.
  • Incident Response and Remediation: Provides historical data to investigate, scope and remediate APTs.
  • Storage: Delivers storage for endpoint telemetry with zero data volume charges.

Tanium and Google Cloud also announced an integration between Tanium and Google's BeyondCorp zero-trust security framework model. The integration enables Tanium customers to use endpoint identity, state and compliance data with the BeyondCorp Remote Access solution.
