Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

For millions of companies, cyber security is high on the agenda, especially as remote working has become the norm. Tanium offers a security and systems management platform that allows real-time data collection at an enterprise scale. It covers customers such as AutoNation, GoDaddy, and Whirlpool who use the company’s software to stay abreast of the ever-increasing level of sophisticated cyber attacks.

A valuable tool for enterprises and government organisations, it partners with leading platforms and service providers across the world like Google Cloud, Oracle and Verizon. In doing so, it allows security and IT teams access to accurate information on the state of endpoints, helping it to realise new levels of business resilience.

Tanium added a former US Defence Secretary to its Board in 2021. A collaboration with Salesforce provided a platform that supports IT service management, remote monitoring and management, and cybersecurity capabilities. In the same year, the appointment of CFO Mark Levine could signal an IPO in the near future.
