KIRKLAND, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Tanium, the industry’s leading provider of Converged Endpoint Management (XEM), today announced it has furthered its dedication to the protection of the U.S. government and other federal organizations through the Federal Risk and Authorized Management Program (FedRAMP®) with the authorization of Tanium Cloud for U.S. Government (TC-USG) at the Moderate Impact Level. A foundational security platform, especially for customers in highly regulated industries, Tanium technology currently supports five branches of the Department of Defense, civilian agencies, and more than 70% of the Fortune 100 companies.
FedRAMP is a risk management framework that outlines a standardized approach to security authorizations for cloud service providers. It applies to U.S. government entities and authorized industry partners as it seeks to improve the security of operations, technology, and the use of cloud products across the federal government. Now authorized, TC-USG will deliver the full functionality of the Tanium XEM platform as a fully managed, cloud-based service that converges multiple point solutions spanning asset discovery and inventory, endpoint management, unified policy configuration, risk, compliance, and incident response.
“Government organizations are tasked with protecting our nation’s most sensitive information and therefore require comprehensive solutions that are built to anticipate the threats of today – and tomorrow,” said Matt Quinn, chief technology officer, Tanium. “In delivering solutions that provide real-time visibility across highly complex IT landscapes, we empower our federal customers to stay ahead of today’s increasingly sophisticated and pervasive cyber threats. We’re proud to extend the most comprehensive XEM platform offering to the U.S. federal government sector through the FedRAMP Marketplace.”
TC-USG will empower organizations to spin up an instance quickly, with critical IT operations, risk, and security solutions ready-to-go and infrastructure free. This helps federal IT teams - who have more off campus endpoints than ever - more effectively manage their infrastructure at a time where bandwidth and resources are scarce. This includes the management of legacy, on-premises tools that steadily require manual software updates, the replacement and maintenance of old servers, and support for on-premises tools and protection against today’s modern threats.
“Government operations and the functions of federal agencies rely on the innovation, efficiency, and security that only the cloud can deliver,” said Rob Dao, vice president of the federal government practice at Tanium. “Tanium’s FedRAMP certification is further evidence of our commitment to strengthen and better serve some of the most highly targeted agencies in the country as they leverage and benefit from the power of cloud technology.”
Tanium’s FedRAMP authorized offering allows U.S. government customers to retire legacy hardware and ensure they operate on the latest version of software without the need to provision servers and implement longer timelines for on-premises deployments.

FedRAMP is a government-wide program with input from numerous departments, agencies, and government groups. The program’s primary governance body is the Joint Authorization Board (JAB), comprised of the CIOs from DOD, DHS, and GSA. In addition to the JAB, other organizations such as OMB, the Federal CIO Council, NIST, DHS, and the FedRAMP Program Management Office (PMO) also play key roles in effectively running FedRAMP.
