McAfee and Tanium Team Up to Deliver Enhanced Real Time Technology with Instant, Actionable Visibility

RSA CONFERENCE McAfee today announced a technology partnership with Tanium, Inc. to provide enhanced McAfee Real Time technology. McAfee Real Time Command enriches security and systems management with instant visibility into system data and immediate intervention ability. This product empowers administrators to manage incident responses, outbreaks, current patching levels, security policies, and software compliance proactively. Enterprises today need up-to-the-second information to identify and resolve security issues within minutes versus days – the McAfee/Tanium partnership is the only product that fulfills that need at enterprise scale.

Other systems management tools are unable to provide the time-sensitive data enterprises need in order to efficiently prevent and respond to threats and outages. According to the 2013 Verizon Data Breach Report, 69 percent of breaches went from initial compromise to data exfiltration within hours. Conversely, over a third of breaches took weeks to months resolve.1 To minimize the damage of attacks and protect the business, it is essential that security analysts are able to quickly identify attacks, determine the root cause and remediate the threat. McAfee Real Time Command delivers an extensible enterprise platform for deep insight into the critical endpoint data to identify threats, including information about running processes, hashes of files, established network connections, user activity, configuration information, and more as well as the ability to instantly take action in response.

“Time is everything when it comes to stopping threats,” said Orion Hindawi, chief technology officer at Tanium. “By the time the problem is discovered, the damage has been done, and threats have spread throughout the environment. Together with McAfee, we’re helping businesses rapidly expose and stop these threats before they infiltrate the environment. We’re helping them pivot from being the hunted to being the hunter.”

McAfee Real Time Command Capabilities:

  • Instant querying: Query every endpoint in your environment and get answers back within seconds. The ability to gather data quickly is essential when an organization is confronted with outages, viruses, or zero-day vulnerabilities. McAfee Real Time Command empowers organizations to both detect and respond to incidents instantly.
  • Instant actions: The instant querying capability enables enterprises to identify and diagnose problems as they occur, but organizations also need the ability to take action at light speed. McAfee Real Time Command delivers immediate action so IT administrators can make changes across an entire network within seconds.
  • Plain English: McAfee Real Time Command gives users the ability to ask questions in plain English, instead of having to learn a complex scripting language. IT administrators can simply ask questions and get answers back in seconds.
  • Enterprise ready: McAfee Real Time Command includes features critical to enterprise security and scalability, including FIPS-ready cryptography, rigorous management rights, large-scale support for administrators and managed assets.
  • Simple infrastructure: Based on its innovative network topology, McAfee Real Time Command uses a single server to manage globally distributed networks and large organizations, simplifying deployment and reducing costs.

"IT professionals know that seconds can mean the difference between a successful attack and a blocked one,” said Ryan Allphin, senior vice president and general manager of the security management business unit at McAfee. “By utilizing the Tanium technology we’re able to eliminate costly manual effort and provide immediate data collection and action capabilities, with McAfee Real Time Command. This allows users to focus on what data to collect and why it is important, by providing answers within seconds. This provides huge benefits to the security and efficiency of an organization.”

The McAfee Real Time Command solution is another key element of the McAfee Security Connected platform of integrated, intelligent and connected security solutions that are needed in the battle against advanced threats.
