Asset overview

With Asset, you can get a complete and up-to-date view of your enterprise inventory by aggregating live asset data with the most recent data from offline assets.

You can build reports to show an overview of all your assets, or you can drill down into specific computers or users.

Sources

Asset uses saved questions in Tanium to get information about your endpoints to populate the Asset database. These saved questions are run on a schedule to regularly update the database.

In addition to pulling endpoint information from Tanium, you can import data from an external database by defining a database source, and configuring mappings on where to add the data in the Asset database.

You can augment Asset inventory data with external data from a SQL Server database. By importing data that is typically not available on an endpoint into the Asset data store, you can enable filtering and reporting on information such as department, cost center, building, and location.

Online and offline asset data aggregation

Asset aggregates data from both online and offline assets into one complete reporting data set. This data is populated from saved questions that are scheduled on a frequent basis. All devices that have answered Tanium Asset questions are visible in Asset reports.

Predefined reports

Asset comes with a set of predefined reports to help you prepare for audit and inventory activities.

  • All Assets
  • Physical Machine Summary
  • Virtual Machine Summary
  • Platform Summary
  • All Users
  • All Software
  • All Microsoft Software
  • All Adobe Software

Report drilldown

If you create a summary report, you can drill down on the computer count and see a filtered list of computer details, which includes the software and hardware information about the asset.

Custom reports

You can build custom reports that are based on any existing report. You can also create your own reports from existing Tanium sensor data or custom content. You might choose to create custom reports to show assets by department, location, user group, or other attributes.

Data export

ServiceNow CMDB

Asset data can enrich the inventory data in ServiceNow CMDB, ensuring that it has up-to-date information. With Asset, you can define the server, attribute mappings, and schedule for data to be exported.

Tanium™ Connect

You can use any of the Asset predefined reports as a connection source and send to destinations such as Email, File, HTTP, Socket Receiver, Splunk, and SQL Server.

Flexera

With the Flexera integration, you can use the existing Tanium Client to populate information in Flexera FlexNet Manager Suite (FNMS).
