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.

Tanium

Peer-to-peer connections, optimized for traditional LAN networks

1E Tachyon

Scalable direct client-server network, topology and location agnostic

Tanium

High-friction P2P design means slower response times

1E Tachyon

Optimized connections mean faster response times and less network load

Tanium

Supports mainly Windows & Mac on static office networks

1E Tachyon

Supports Windows, Mac, Linux, Mobile and IoT devices, anywhere

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.”

“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.”
