Alliance Will Target Unique IT Security Risks Associated with Remote Office Environments
Charles River Associates (NASDAQ: CRAI), a worldwide leader in providing economic, financial, and management consulting services, today announced that CRA has formed a strategic alliance with Tanium, a leading provider of unified endpoint management and security. The alliance will bring together the deep technical information security expertise, threat intelligence and consulting practices of CRA’s Forensic Services Practice with massively scalable endpoint visibility and management from Tanium to help companies around the world address the challenges of securing and managing largely remote workforces.
The rapid shift to a work-from-home culture has exposed critical IT gaps, such as unmanaged computers and servers, and pitfalls in information security hygiene. According to research released by Tanium in July, 98 percent of CIOs and CISOs reported increased security challenges in the first two months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ninety
