IBM BigFix: The market-leading endpoint management and security platform

The endpoint landscape changes constantly.  IT infrastructure and security specialists struggle to access current information on operating systems, software versions, application usage and compliance drift on every PC, server, ATM or point-of-sale system across the enterprise. Without effective discovery, deployment and enforcement, the likelihood of a successful endpoint attack grows exponentially. If you can’t see it, you can’t fix it.

With IBM® BigFix®, IT departments can cut operational costs, compress endpoint management cycles and enforce compliance in real-time.
