Tanium Console and Interact Overview

Tanium Console

The Tanium™ Console is the graphical user interface that you use to manage the Tanium™ Core Platform and use Tanium™ solution modules, including Tanium™ Interact. The Tanium Console is a web application that is installed with the Tanium Server; it does not require separate licensing. You use the Tanium Console to perform the following key tasks:

  • Import and use Tanium solutions and content packs
  • Manage content, including sensors, packages, saved questions, and filter groups
  • Manage actions
  • Manage role-based access control (RBAC) configurations for users, user groups, roles, computer groups, personas, and content sets.
  • Configure global settings that affect the behavior of the Tanium Console, Tanium™ Server, Tanium™ Zone Server, and Tanium™ Client

Tanium Interact

You use Tanium Interact to issue questions to managed endpoints, analyze their answers, and deploy actions to the endpoints based on the answers. Although it is licensed as part of the Tanium Core Platform, Interact is a Tanium module, so you can update it separately from the Tanium Console and the Tanium Server.
