It’s never an easy decision to switch out existing tools for a new one, but high operating costs and functional needs can sometimes make it necessary. IBM Tivoli® Endpoint Manager, built on BigFix® technology, can significantly reduce the barriers by minimizing switching costs, disruptions, and the new-tool learning curve. Customers have seen significant cost savings consolidating many tools down to the single Tivoli Endpoint Manager architecture.
What makes the Tivoli Endpoint Manager architecture better?
The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager architecture sets out to solve a problem: Why do most systems and security management tools just not work as promised in the real world across the entire enterprise? Long before the first product release, the company spent years developing a platform that could be used to successfully deliver any type of content, command, or query to any computer, anywhere. It had to operate in real-world conditions and be easy to implement, fast, and accurate.
Tivoli Endpoint Manager’s patented technology distributes computing power to the devices themselves, using the intelligent Tivoli Endpoint Manager agent to provide a level of visibility and control not possible in legacy solutions. This level of innovation translates into significant advantages in speed, flexibility, and scalability, while reducing the infrastructure and training costs associated with traditional systems and security management.
Each agent acts independently and simultaneously to process policies, report changes, or execute actions—pulling only relevant content from the management server as needed. This parallel processing, combined with the performance optimization of our agent code, results in rapid assessment and remediation cycles, real-time reporting, continuous enforcement, ability to control off-network devices, and minimal network chatter.
