Enforce overview

Tanium™ Enforce enables unified endpoint management and security by providing centralized policy management across operating system, application, and security for Windows and macOS environments regardless of the device’s location - on premises, remote, or cloud.

Policy

To manage and secure endpoints across environments by providing control and visibility to all devices, configure a policy.

Policy setting

Specific settings and controls contained within a policy.

Enforcement

An enforcement occurs when a policy is successfully applied to a computer or user group. Policies can have one of these enforcement states:

Applied

A policy has been successfully enforced. All rules and configurations of the policy are in effect on the targeted endpoint.

If ALL settings in one policy are duplicates of ALL settings in another policy, both policies are shown as applied even though only the policy with the lowest priority number is applied.

Partially Applied

Some of the policy settings are enforced and some are not. This may be because similar policies with one or more duplicate settings are taking precedence. When some settings are duplicated across different policies, the settings with the lowest number priority are applied and higher number priority settings are not applied. This results in some settings from a policy being enforced while other settings in the same policy are not enforced.

Five is the maximum number of not applied or partially applied settings that can be displayed in the status column.

Not Applied

The policy is not in effect on the endpoint. This could be due to a timing issue if the policy has been sent to the endpoint but not yet executed on that endpoint. See the enforcement state reason for more information.

Unsupported

An unsupported status may be due to a policy being applied to an operating system that does not support the policy settings.

Error

All known and unknown errors.

Integration with other Tanium products

Threat Response

Use Threat Response findings to create process and network rule policies for Windows endpoints in Enforce to prevent future incidents across the network. Failing to identify and address more fundamental vulnerabilities exploited during an incident leaves the organization with no net improvement to their security posture.

Trends

Enforce has built-in integration with Tanium™ Trends for additional reporting of related data. The Trends initial gallery features boards that provide a data visualization of Enforce concepts.

For more information about how to import the Trends boards that are provided by Performance, see Tanium Trends User Guide: Importing the initial gallery.
