Description:

BigFix delivers endpoint lifecycle and security management using a unified, lightweight, extensible infrastructure. This solution enables organizations to proactively manage their servers, desktops, and laptops. BigFix provides a clear path for improving control and compliance with clear, accurate reporting, and easy integration with systems such as ticketing and change management databases.

Enhancements

  • BigFix V9.5 is now fully Unicode enabled and removes the need to set standard English code page for all systems when managing IT environments, which are located in various countries or geographical locations.

  • The IBM BigFix Compliance PCI Add-on provides reporting and compliance services to help ensure that your endpoints meet the technical and organizational requirements that are related to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

  • BigFix V9.5 provides a web user interface, an additional component of the BigFix platform, and is designed to harness the flexibility and power of BigFix. The interface is presented in an approachable format so that operators with little or no knowledge of BigFix can easily use it.

  • The web user interface augments the traditional BigFix Console but does not replace it.

Additional enhancements to the BigFix products are part of this update.
