Installing Zero Trust

Tanium Cloud automatically handles module installations and upgrades.

For information about configuring Zero Trust for Tanium Cloud, see Configuring Zero Trust.

Use the Tanium Console Solutions page to install Zero Trust and choose either automatic or manual configuration:

  • Automatic configuration with default settings (Tanium Core Platform 7.4.2 or later only): Zero Trust 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 Zero Trust, see Installing Zero Trust.
  • Manual configuration with custom settings: After installing Zero Trust, you must manually configure required settings. Select this option only if Zero Trust requires settings that differ from the recommended default settings. For more information, see Installing Zero Trust.

Before you begin

  • Read the release notes.
  • Review the Zero Trust requirements.
  • Assign the correct roles to users for Zero Trust. Review the User role requirements.
    • To import the Zero Trust solution, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role.
    • To configure the Zero Trust action group, you must be assigned the Administrator reserved role, Content Administrator reserved role, or a role that has the Action Group write permission.

If you have multiple Tanium Servers in an active-active configuration, you only need to perform these steps on one Tanium Server if you have Tanium Core Platform or later.

  2. From the Main menu, go to Administration > Configuration > Solutions.
  3. In the Content section, select the checkbox for Zero Trust and click Import.

    If you need to install any prerequisite Tanium solutions, select the corresponding checkboxes for those solutions as well.

  4. Review the content to import and click Begin Install.
