The Difference a Future Proof EDR Architecture Makes
Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) published the findings of their evaluation of two of the leading endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms currently available: Tanium and 1E Tachyon.
Future proof architecture delivers Speed and Scalability
While Tanium enjoys broad recognition for its approach to endpoint communication using peer-to-peer (P2P) networking, it’s important to keep in mind that Tanium’s development predates the mobile revolution. This is why Tanium’s architecture is best suited for static environments supporting non-moving PCs on dedicated LANs.
Recognizing today’s more dynamic end user computing environments, 1E architected its Tachyon solution to provide high-speed responses that are also much faster than traditional approaches to endpoint monitoring but without the need for linking endpoints in unmovable chains.

According to the EMA report, Tachyon’s underlying architecture offers a lower friction approach, delivering faster overall performance than what is possible by negotiating through a Tanium P2P chain. This means that more enterprise devices can be supported regardless of location, but also enables support for portable endpoints such as laptops, tablets, smartphones, and IoT devices that would otherwise have to be managed separately. If your organization needs to manage a mixture of remote/mobile and static devices, and do it fast, Tachyon provides a modern architecture for simplifying the job, cost effectively.
