IBM BigFix: A collaborative endpoint management and security platform

IT security and operations teams are struggling to keep pace with global cyber criminals – often using up to 85 different tools from up to 45 different vendors. This makes it hard to prioritize patching and remediation. Plus, not all remediation tools are created equal.  If you can’t see your endpoints and your tools don’t work together, you can’t secure your devices and data.

With IBM® BigFix®, IT operations and security teams can collaborate more effectively to cut operational costs, compress endpoint management cycles, enforce compliance in real-time and improve productivity. Here's how:

  • Extending existing capabilities and addressing any functional gaps that may exist within a particular tool
  • Enabling staff to use solutions they’re already familiar and avoiding training costs and ramp-up delays
  • Empowering security and infrastructure teams to see and act on the same endpoint data without switching between multiple applications (which also saves time and can enable better decision making)
  • Optimizing ROI on existing investments

Can effective patch posture reporting help you identify security risk, reduce operational cost, and enhance compliance effectiveness?
