Tanium is used for network security. We can acquire files, detect malicious file-related activities, and process-related activities in our environment.

Our primary use case of this solution is for endpoint protection and, more particularly, the patching. We are integrators and customers of Tanium and I'm a channel director.

We also use BigFix. Our primary use case for Tanium is for tool consolidation. Tanium is already equipped with multiple capabilities that BigFix has. These are almost parallel tools, running with similar kinds of capabilities. We are planning to flip to Tanium, which might primarily be used as a management solution. Overall, we use Tanium to interact and discover related queries. It is also used as our system information and event management tool.

From a licensing perspective, it is a bit expensive if I do compare them with basic settings. It is nearly two or two and a half times more expensive.

Modern-day servers are robust enough to accommodate as many applications and processes as possible. Still, there is a limit to how much load a server can handle. If your business does not heed the server constraints in time, you are bound to suffer from operational loss due to server downtimes. To closely monitor your server health, you must track specific metrics regularly. Here are some s...

Collecting as many metrics, statuses, and logs about the servers is indeed the first step, you never know what data you will need to solve a particular problem. The second step is to process and correctly pinpoint where the network performance/behavior differs from the expected range/baseline.  Can your network monitoring software automate the obvious (execute remote corrective actions in response to alerts) and notify the IT person about only critical situations where the human needs to make a decision about the resolution options? We expect the network monitoring software today to do just that.  I would say NetCrunch can do it, but do you have any experience with other monitoring products that provide a similar type of monitoring experience for IT teams?
