Tanium + CRA Partnership
CRA Services Built on the Tanium Platform
Charles River Associates (CRA), a leading global consulting firm specializing in economic, financial, and management consulting services, has a long-standing strategic alliance with Tanium to provide clients with services that reduce cyber risk, reduce attack surface, and effectively manage threats and vulnerabilities.
CRA uses Tanium across multiple proactive and reactive solution areas, including Cyber Incident Response, Compromise Discovery Assessments, and strategic security consulting.
Tanium and CRA help increase visibility, mitigate risk, manage threats
The rapid shift to a work-from-home culture has exposed critical IT gaps, such as unmanaged computers and servers, and pitfalls in information security hygiene.
Cybersecurity can be an enabler – not a hinderance – to your business.
We have teamed up to help our clients through a unified endpoint management and security platform.
Together, we help address challenges with clients who are:
Unclear if and where legacy unsupported software versions exist that create an exposure point
Uncertain if key security controls are in-place across all corporate assets, and determine IT hygiene
Unable to determine the quantity and software of servers and workstations (assets) in the environment
Struggling to properly remediate security gaps without having full visibility across all endpoints in the environment
Challenged with the ability to detect the presence of active compromises and threat actors present in their environment
