Establish and maintain a secure IT environment with BigFix Compliance. As the number of security attacks grow, IT operations and security teams seek more effective ways to enhance security posture, automate the fight against cyberattacks, reduce costs and complexity, while increasing staff productivity and effectiveness. With BigFix Compliance you can achieve all this and more. Understand the most important capabilities necessary to create and implement an effective security and compliance solution across the organization.
Compliance is a complex topic. Different industries, regions or counties have their own IT security related regulations/standards for organizations to comply with, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR. On the other hands, a few general-purpose IT security frameworks have been defined to help organizations implement security programs to harden the infrastructure posture and reduce security breach risks, such as ISO 27001, CIS Controls, NIST 800-53.
While complying with an industry or country specific regulation will often drive the need to implement a general-purpose security framework, a good implementation of a security framework will help an organization meet many regulatory requirements.
With its rich set of endpoint management capabilities and realizing the ‘continuous compliance’ concept, BigFix can help an organization effectively implement various popular security frameworks or meet industry or country specific regulatory requirements.
CIS Benchmarks, developed by a global community of cybersecurity professionals, are a collection of best practices for securely configuring IT systems, software, networks, and cloud infrastructure.
HCL BigFix Compliance has the richest contents in the industry to help an organization implement CIS Benchmarks. It provides checklists out of the box for more than 60 operating systems and middleware applications to enable an organization to implement CIS benchmarks effectively and consistently. The checklists are constantly refreshed by the BigFix team to support the latest benchmarks.

Developed by many leading security experts based on threat data and security incidents across the industries, CIS Controls consists of a set of recommended security best practices to be implemented by all organizations to block security attacks and establish a better defense posture. CIS Controls are also recommended to be implemented to help demonstrate compliance to some regional regulations such as California State’s CCPA or New York State’s SHIELD.
HCL BigFix is an effective endpoint management solution to help organizations discover, manage and protect all their endpoints. Many of the CIS Controls can be effectively addressed by leveraging the BigFix capabilities.

Expedite CIS Controls for California’s CCPA and New York’s SHIELD compliance with BigFix
CIS Controls consists of a set of recommended security best practices that can be implemented by any organization to block attacks, reduce attack surfaces and establish better defense posture.
For the benefit of the cybersecurity community and network defenders—and to help every organization better manage vulnerabilities and keep pace with threat activity—CISA maintains the authoritative source of vulnerabilities that have been exploited in the wild: the Known Exploited Vulnerability (KEV) catalog. CISA strongly recommends all organizations review and monitor the KEV catalog and prioritize remediation of the listed vulnerabilities to reduce the likelihood of compromise by known threat actors.
HCL BigFix has released a new dashboard in reducing the amount of time and resources required to gather up all the items in the KEV, link them to the correct content that applies to your specific environment, and then automate the remediation of these vulnerabilities on applicable endpoints.

ISO 27001 is an international information security standard applicable to all organizations, regardless of type, size or nature. It includes a set of Security Controls — a total of 114 Controls, divided into 14 categories — with clearly stated objectives and implementation guidance for each Control. ISO 27001 has been widely adopted by organizations to create a comprehensive information system security program.
BigFix can be used by an organization to implement applicable ISO 27001 Controls to establish a secure baseline across an organization’s servers and clients devices.
