The contract signed on Sept. 26 calls for Tanium to provide cyber monitoring support to up to 1 million Army endpoint devices such as desktop computers and laptops.

Ralph Kahn, vice president for federal affairs at Tanium, said the company's platform works to detect the spread of a cyber vulnerability across all endpoints in about 15 seconds upon the detection of a bug in one system.

The contract has a one-year base term and four option years.
