Reference: Airgap support

You can use the Airgap Operations menu to configure your Taniumâ„¢ deployment to access Tanium content in an airgap environment.

Install an airgap module

TanOS has menus to support installation of airgap modules and content packages provided by Tanium.

Before you begin

This installer supports both RPM and Zip airgap content files. RPM content files are very large, so they take several minutes to install.
