Description:

IBM BigFix V9.2.6 includes updated license information, new program product electronic media, and publications. BigFix V9.2.6 also introduces capability that helps organizations looking for additional security when users access product interfaces. Users are asked for an authorization smart card that requires a personal identification number.

  • Smart card is a credit card sized card that has an embedded microchip and one or more certificates. The information on the card identifies the user and the certificate also includes the user's private key used for asymmetric cryptography. Users are often required to enter a personal identification number (PIN) along with the smart card. Using a smart card (something you have) and a PIN (something you know) provides multifactor authentication. Combining two or more factors of authentication is more secure than using only a single factor.

  • Common Access Card (CAC) and Personal Identification Verification (PIV) card provide the same benefits of a smart card, but also include photo identification.

In order to support multiple factors of authentication capabilities BigFix bundles the following products:

  • IBM Security Access Manager Virtual Edition V9.0

  • IBM Security Access Manager Virtual Edition Federation Module V9.0

Additional enhancements:

  • Improved IBM BigFix Patch with enhanced patch management process for additional middleware applications server components and clustered configurations.

  • Improved IBM BigFix Inventory with enhanced capability of software inventory and license usage metering for IBM and non-IBM products.

  • Improved IBM BigFix Compliance with enhanced and updated content in checklists content that include wide set of industry and government standards.

  • Improved IBM BigFix Protection with enhanced capabilities for near real-time protection from malware and other malicious threats through file and web reputation, personal firewall, behavior monitoring.
