With Asset, you can get a complete and up-to-date view of your enterprise inventory. An asset is any computer, server, or virtual machine that is managed by a Tanium Client. The inventory aggregates 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 define how Asset gets data. By default, 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.
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.
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 configurable basis. All devices that have answered Tanium Asset questions are visible in Asset reports. You can configure how long to keep assets that have not been updated.
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
- Age of Assets
- Age of Assets for Lost Devices
- Age of Assets for New Devices
Summary reports group data by the attributes you select and display a count of matching endpoints.
You can drill down on the endpoint count and see a filtered list of computer details, which includes the software and hardware information about the asset.
If the report contains computer name or user name, you can also drill down for further details.
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.
Use views to build an alternative perspective of the Asset data. Views specify available attributes and can filter the included data. You can export data from a view to Tanium Connect.
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.
You can use any predefined reports, custom reports, or views as a connection source and send to destinations such as Email, File, HTTP, Socket Receiver, Splunk, and SQL Server.
With the Flexera integration, you can use the existing Tanium Client to populate information in Flexera FlexNet Manager Suite (FNMS).
Asset has built in integration with Tanium™ Trends for additional reporting of related data.
Asset features Trends boards that provide data visualization of Asset concepts. The Asset board displays how many endpoints are reporting to Asset, and how the data is being used in reports, views, and data exports. The following panels are in the Asset board:
- Total number of endpoints
- Number of endpoints seen today
- Age of assets
- ServiceNow insights
- Report operations
- Number of reports
- Number of views
- Average job duration
