Tanium provides a single platform that delivers complete, accurate, and real-time endpoint data in any type of environment at scale. Cylitic Security provides enterprise grade security tools and managed services to small and medium sized businesses.

The Cylitic team emerged as the winner among a field of 22 fellow partner teams during the 4-hour competition. Challenges included:

Cylitic is proud to offer Tanium as part of their overall managed security service offering. "Many small and medium businesses do not have the resources, team, or expertise it takes to keep their company safe from cyber threats," added Thornton. Cylitic offers risk reduction, reporting, and response services by delivering AI-driven malware protection, cloud-based DNS and HTTP(S) filtering and automated compliance reporting all with 24x7x365 support and monitoring.
