Episode 49 - Endpoint Solutions as a Business AND Security Tool
July 21, 2021
In this episode I have a special co-host Natasha Young. Natasha is my WomSA security mentee. Here and I had a chance to speak with Stephanie Aceves about endpoint solutions as a security AND business tool. Stephanie is an Threat Response Subject Matter Expert Leads for Tanium.
- What’s the difference between EDR and what Tanium does? Specifically, how can end-point management systems close the gap between traditional detection systems and automation while still being able to manage time sensitivity?
- What are some of the lessons learned from recent cyber attacks, such as SolarWinds, Microsoft Exchange, and the Colonial Pipeline where a tool like Tanium (end-point management) could have prevented or mitigated the damage?
- President Biden signed an executive order recently, this past May to improve cybersecurity in America. In the executive order talked about Improving Detection of Cybersecurity Incidents on Federal Government Networks. “The Federal government should lead in cybersecurity, and strong, Government-wide Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) deployment coupled with robust intra-governmental information sharing are essential.” Where can Tanium be used with some of the statements made around EDR?
- What does this executive order mean for Tanium and has the company adopted this as an opportunity to help other companies?
