Installing Network Quarantine

Use the Tanium Solutions page to install Network Quarantine and choose either automatic or manual configuration:

  • Automatic configuration with default settings (Tanium Core Platform 7.4.2 or later only): Network Quarantine is installed with any required dependencies and other selected products. After installation, the Tanium Server automatically configures the recommended default settings. This option is the best practice for most deployments. For more information about the automatic configuration for Network Quarantine, see Import and configure Network Quarantine with default settings.
  • Manual configuration with custom settings: After installing Network Quarantine, you must manually configure required settings. Select this option only if Network Quarantine requires settings that differ from the recommended default settings. For more information, see Import and configure Network Quarantine with custom settings.
