Andreessen Horowitz invests $90 million in Tanium
Andreessen Horowitz has invested $90 million in an enterprise security and system management company Tanium. Tanium lets IT departments control a network using natural language using a search engine like interface.
You can use commands like “show computers where CPU > 75%” and “show computers with a process named WINWORD.EXE.” It shows a list of computers on the network that are based on those parameters.
You can also use Tanium to take actions like distributing and installing updates, shutting down processes, or removing or quarantining files. This is Tanium’s first venture capital investment since it was founded in 2007.
Tanium is already profitable. The company managed to not raise any venture capital for seven years since it was operating at full-scale with dozens of customers. Today Tanium has hundreds of customers on the Forbes 1000 list across multiple verticals.
