Tanium Automate

This feature, which is now available in private preview for Tanium Cloud users, enables IT and Security teams to automate frequent tasks, whether they are simple or complex. Teams can build custom playbooks from the UI to reduce operational impact and automate recurring tasks such as patching, application deployments, vulnerability remediations, unused software license reclamation, and more. By creating and linking a series of Tanium Action Steps into logical, repeatable sequences, called playbooks, common tasks can run automatically or with user interaction and oversight.
