Endpoint and security management provider Tanium has expanded its cloud-based endpoint visibility and control platform, Tanium as a Service (TaaS), to local data centres in Canada, the UK, Brazil and Australia.
By making TaaS available via local data centres, Tanium is able to provide customers within those regions with “enhanced TaaS performance, better support for their compliance programmes and high-fidelity endpoint data to inform their critical IT decisions”.
TaaS, which is also newly-listed on the AWS marketplace, enables businesses to overcome IT challenges such as ransomware attacks, Tanium claims.
“We hear a lot about how big enterprises are facing IT challenges such as supporting a remote workforce and responding to ransomware attacks, but small to medium-sized organisations are also facing the same issues,” said Pete Constantine, chief product officer at Tanium.
“They need real-time endpoint data and visibility to overcome these challenges, delivered through a platform that operates without any infrastructure requirements. This can now be accessed at the click of a button via the AWS Marketplace, which is a really simple way to start using the product,” added Constantine.
Businesses located in other countries can also use the newly-available data centres, as well as the facilities already available in Germany, the U.S. and Japan.
This expansion comes as organisations continue to ramp up their support for a remote or hybrid workforce, which demands the kind of ‘increased business agility’ that can be provided by cloud-delivered, as-a-service solutions, Tanium said.
