VMware Carbon Black vs. Tanium


Built for IT, Not SecOps

Tanium is built for IT operations, leaving security professionals to implement a completely separate product for their needs.


Limited Data Source

Tanium uses data from your own environment with access only to endpoints that are online and on the corporate network.


On Premises

Tanium is an on premises solution, which makes it more complicated and expensive to operate and maintain.


VMware Carbon Black

Single Lightweight Agent Built for SecOps

VMware Carbon Black Cloud meets the needs of both cybersecurity professionals and IT operations teams, consolidating multiple agent actions.


Complete Visibility

Access your data whenever you need it, even if systems are offline. Leverage a global network of data for visibility into both historical and current data across your endpoints—on and off the corporate network.


Cloud Native EPP

Deploy, manage and stay updated with the latest threat intelligence. Through its single agent, VMware Carbon Black Cloud allows you to quickly query and remediate endpoints, investigate alerts and prevent threats.
