Direct Connect overview
Direct Connect provides a communication channel for other Tanium™ modules and a central location for configuring and administering direct endpoint connections across modules.
With Direct Connect, you can configure the connection settings that are shared by Tanium modules for establishing direct endpoint connections. Since Direct Connect uses mutual authentication, both IP addresses and self-signed certificates are supported.
Use Direct Connect with Performance to view historical process-level data from a single endpoint for analysis and troubleshooting. For more information, see Performance User Guide: Connecting directly to endpoints.
Protect encryption management policies use Direct Connect to securely retrieve encryption keys from the endpoint. For more information see Protect User Guide: Encryption management.
Reveal uses Direct Connect to view files on endpoints that match configured rules and patterns. For more information, see Reveal User Guide: Investigating rule matches and Reveal User Guide: Validating pattern matches.
Tanium™ Threat Response
Threat Response uses Direct Connect to connect to live endpoints and explore data. For more information, see Threat Response User Guide: Connecting to live endpoints and exploring data.
You can review open and pending endpoint sessions across Tanium modules. Use active endpoint connections to see the active connections on the server. For more information, see Reviewing active endpoint sessions.
