Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted an objective and independent evaluation of two of the leading Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) platforms currently available: Tanium and 1E Tachyon.
Peer-to-peer connections, optimized for traditional LAN networks
Scalable direct client-server network, topology and location agnostic
Supports mainly Windows & Mac on static office networks
Supports Windows, Mac, Linux, Mobile and IoT devices, anywhere
High-friction P2P design means slower response times
Optimized connections mean faster response times and less network load
So, which is better?
“While both Tanium and Tachyon can be extended for multiple use cases, Tachyon is significantly faster and cheaper to operate at scale thanks to its innovative modern architecture. Tachyon works well with endpoints on home-WiFi, hotels, etc. that are not connected to the corporate LAN or VPN and is easier to interoperate with, thanks to the RESTful API approach.” - EMA Research Paper: “Adapting Effective Solutions in Endpoint Detection and Response” (June 2018)
“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.”
