Tanium Joins CISA’s Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency has selected Washington-based cybersecurity company Tanium to join the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative.

As a JCDC member, Tanium will work with private- and public-sector organizations and operators in exchanging cyber threat intelligence and disseminating threat indicators to the IT security community. Sam Kinch, director of technical account management at Tanium, said joining the JCDC will improve U.S. cyber resilience.

JCDC is part of the Biden administration’s cybersecurity efforts that prioritize technology modernization within the federal government, Tanium said.

Tanium offers the Converged Endpoint Management platform, which converges multiple-point solutions into a unified platform to enhance resources management. Five Department of Defense branches and other federal and civilian agencies use XEM for asset discovery and inventory, endpoint management, risk compliance, incident response and unified policy configuration.

JCDC was launched in August 2021 with the goal of developing and executing cyber defense operation plans in partnership with agencies across all government levels. Specifically, JCDC members will design and implement plans to address cyber risks, share insights to shape a joint understanding of cyber-related challenges, implement coordinated defensive cyber operations and support joint exercises to improve cyber defense operations.

Some of its members are Proofpoint, Forcepoint, Fortinet, Motorola Solutions, SentinelOne and NTT.
