IBM BigFix Compliance is an effective solution to help organizations enable continuous compliance with government regulations and security policies while reducing costs and mitigating security risks. Leveraging the BigFix infrastructure and best-practice checklists implemented based on benchmarks published by CIS, DISA STIG, USGCB, PCI DSS, BigFix Compliance provides near real-time visibility into security configurations across an organization while facilitating continuous, automated policy enforcement to all endpoints, including laptops, desktops, servers, ATMs and POS devices., regardless whether they are on and off the cooperate network.
BigFix Compliance now includes a new “Patch Reporting” capability to track, analyze, and report the current status and historical trend of patching activities across all the endpoints in a BigFix deployment. Leveraging the same Compliance Analytics engine and a similar reporting methodology, this new capability enables BigFix Compliance to provide additional benefits to the Security, IT Operations and Compliance teams in an organization:
- Complete assessment of the patching posture by SOC or IT Operations Managers
- More efficient prioritization of vulnerability remediation by IT Operations Specialists
- Effective demonstration of compliance with regulations or organization policies by Compliance Specialists
Patch Reporting” extends the analytics and reporting capabilities of BigFix Compliance from security configuration to security patch. It allows an organization to monitor, assess, and report the current and historical posture of these two important endpoint security areas, to get a more complete picture of the organization’s overall security and risk posture.
