Tanium pulls down $52M more venture capital for endpoint platform

Tanium has pulled in another $ 52 million in venture capital and is upgrading its endpoint software platform so it’s easier to tell it what to do and for it to gather threat intelligence from third-party platforms.

The company got the latest investment from Andreessen Horowitz, bringing total investment in the company to $ 142 million. It says it will use the money to help it innovate and grow faster and to make a push into the largest enterprises.

A new version of its Endpoint Platform software agents and server – for systems management and endpoint security – can now scale to millions of endpoints supported by a single server. The platform can perform routine IT operations chores – software distribution, asset discovery, compliance monitoring and the like – as well as gather intelligence to discover intrusions. A new capability is evaluating versions of software on endpoints and distributing software patches within seconds or minutes, the company says.
