The subscription patch content was the most useful because it made patching a lot easier, faster, and more successful than alternative options requiring prescans and custom code development. View full review »

The most valuable feature is the patching. It's much more flexible than SCCM. There are more things we can do and especially the cross-platform support is better. View full review »
John Livinston says in a BigFix review
CEO at Verve
The ability for the agent to be customized, to both, run the fix list and the relevant language, but also to be able to be designed so that it only allows for outbound ports rather than inbound is the most valuable feature. We work in a lot of environments where there are segmented networks and we have to have an agent and a communication where we don't have any inbound ports into that environment. Having that agent be really small, and the ability to not have to have any open inbound ports into that environment is wonderful. View full review »

Ben Cotton says in a BigFix review
Founder at CyFIR
With BigFix, the ability to do device discovery and the installation of our CyFIR agent across the environment is a very autonomous, automatic-type function that is a very significant feature for us. We combine CyFIR and BigFix to provide a total cybersecurity solution, including computer forensics disk imaging, memory analysis imaging. As part of that, we tend to leverage BigFix from the remediation side and from the installation side. The peer to peer file transfers as a solution are fine. View full review »
Joshua Hickok says in a BigFix review
Senior Security Consultant at Tech Data Corporation
It's incredibly powerful and it's very extensible. Meaning, it's very easy for us to customize the platform to solve a number of different tasks for us. We enjoy using peer-to-peer file transfers as a peering system for files. It provides built-in redundancy and we can control it all from the console, which is nice. View full review »

BigFix Admin / Win SysAdmin at Costco Wholesale
Some of the most valuable features are its: * Ease of use * The fact that it's a single port access across the board. There's only one firewall to be required. * The user community is great, very helpful. * There's not a lot of overhead to the client. There's a bit of set up to do but it's pretty simple once it gets running to maintain it. It basically maintains itself. As such for as big of a system, it only requires a little manpower. There's only a couple of people that have to manage it. My impressions of peer to peer file transfer in relation to BigFix, is that it's a relay structure that goes up and down the chain, as servers check in they check into their relays, the relays pass up and down the chain. It has tight security. They say it heals itself. It doesn't put a load on the system and doesn't give our guys any headaches or anything. It just seems to work pretty well and it's easy to maintain.

The ease of use is the most valuable feature. Underlying that is the truth that the information that's being derived from the endpoints is accurate. There's no gray matter, and we don't have to interpret the results. View full review »
