Accurate and real-time visibility and
continuous enforcement of security configurations and patches. Security and
compliance analytics identify, manage and report on policy exceptions and
deviations. The software also shows trending and analysis of security
configuration changes. The intelligent agent provides continuous compliance
with automated audit cycles measured in minutes rather than weeks.
Provide Payment Card Industry Data Security
Standard (PCI-DSS) compliance with BigFix Compliance Payment Card Industry
(PCI) add-on. It helps with the enforcement and compliance reporting needed to
satisfy the latest PCI-DSS requirements. BigFix Compliance automatically
manages system configuration to improve endpoint security and helps protect
organizations from the loss of confidential customer information, while
lowering operational and security administration costs.
Support a large variety of endpoints. These include servers, desktop PCs, as well as
specialized equipment such as point-of-sale (POS) devices, ATMs and
self-service kiosks. It provides endpoint management for major operating
systems, third-party applications and policy-based patches, and helps discover
endpoints that you might not have known were in your environment.
Get a variety of security functions plus you can
add other targeted functions without adding infrastructure or implementation
costs. Patch management delivers patches to endpoints on your operating system
and for application vendors. Security configuration management helps detect and
enforce security configurations; and enables management of third-party endpoint
security clients and agents.
Place an intelligent agent on each endpoint.
This single agent performs multiple functions including continuous
self-assessment and policy enforcement with minimal impact on system
performance. It includes real-time and continuous reporting and analysis from
the intelligent agent. The software also allows agents to be configured as a
relay between other agents and the console, which lets existing servers or
workstations transfer packages throughout the network.

The future of BigFix is secure! We are excited to share plans for innovation and growth for our customers.
Manage up to 250,000 endpoints, regardless of
location, connection type or operating system from a single management console.
Manage heterogeneous platforms across more than 90 operating system versions.
BigFix Lifecycle does all of this through an intelligent agent on each endpoint
that performs continuous self-assessment and policy enforcement with minimal
impact on system performance; and enables remote desktop control to streamline
help desk calls and problem resolution.
the full system lifecycle including asset discovery and inventory, software
distribution, operating system deployment, migration and re-imaging, patch
management, power management and remote desktop control. Asset discovery and
inventory features create dynamic situational awareness about changing
conditions in the infrastructure. Quickly discover new systems, deploy agents
and take complete control with closed-loop policy-based management.
Automate patching, remote software deployments,
Windows 10 migrations, OS updates and re-imaging. It can also automate more
advanced tasks like operating systems and application patching on clustered
servers to minimize labor costs and ensure servers are patched and secure
according to your policies. It also supports other common system administration
tasks that need to be sequenced, such as server builds that can include
deploying an operating system or changing the host name.
single console, single server, single intelligent agent view of all assets that
is highly scalable and provides “always-on” software asset management to ensure
audit readiness. It helps you manage software assets across hundreds of
thousands of endpoints and can be installed throughout the entire enterprise in
hours instead of weeks or months.
Simplify software identification with
information on more than 8,000 software publishers, 40,000 software products
and 105,000 application signatures. BigFix combines gathered inventory data
with the software identification catalog to create a browsable warehouse and
delivers continual updates through a cloud-based update service with
information on commercial applications and publishers. The catalog can be easily extended to track
home-grown and proprietary applications with no coding required.
Get reports on the health and compliance of software
assets in minutes—regardless of the size of the environment—with both full
reporting and sub-capacity reporting. Gain visibility into software license
consumption to help plan software budgets based on inventory and usage trends.
BigFix helps you plan for software upgrades and migrations by enabling
administrators to determine which endpoints meet prerequisites; and sets
security compliance policies for software and system configurations.
Discovery for software, processes, and file
systems along with hardware usage and metering to help ensure audit readiness.
These capabilities also provide cost savings and reduced security risk by
identifying unused software. It allows users to browse data about software
license usage to identify unused software and help limit audit and security
exposures; and provides aggregated statistics and usage gathered by searching,
filtering, sorting, viewing and exporting data.
Support up to 250,000 endpoints from a single
management server. Patch more than 90 OS types and delivers patches to
endpoints for third-party applications. The software supports a variety of
endpoints: physical and virtual servers, laptops, desktops, POS devices, ATMs
and self-service kiosks. It supports patching of online and offline virtual
machines, including roaming devices, so that virtual and cloud environments
have the same level of security as physical systems.
Create patch policies using Fixlet messages,
which wrap the update with policy information such as patch dependencies,
applicable systems and severity level. It uses an intelligent agent on every
endpoint to enforce and assess patch compliance and recognizes which patches
are required for that machine. Then it automatically retrieves and applies the
needed updates. BigFix Patch deploys patches more efficiently, even over
low-bandwidth or globally distributed networks.
Gain flexible, real-time monitoring and
reporting with BigFix Patch. It helps you enforce policies and quickly report
on compliance to improve audit readiness. It automatically assesses the
endpoint status once a patch is deployed, confirms successful installation and
updates the management server—supporting compliance requirements that require
definitive proof of installation. BigFix Patch helps you comply with government
regulations, service level agreements and corporate policies.
The software offers integrated web reporting, which
allows users, administrators and executives to view dashboards and receive
reports showing patch management progress in real time. It indicates which
patches were deployed, when they were deployed, who deployed them and to which
endpoints. BigFix Patch uses intelligent agents to continuously monitor
endpoint states, including patch levels, and reports them to a management
server. It compares endpoint compliance against defined policies.
With BigFix Patch, you can reduce security risks by
streamlining remediation cycles from weeks to hours or minutes. It allows you
to create reports showing which endpoints need updates, and then distribute
those updates within minutes. IT administrators can safely and rapidly patch
Windows, Linux, UNIX and Mac operating systems with no domain-specific
knowledge or expertise required. In addition, the software automatically remediates
problems related to previously applied patches.
