BigFix Review

Patch management makes it easy for out-of-band and in-band patching


What is our primary use case?

  • A central engine for endpoint posture improvements
  • Excellent compliance reporting with customizable dashboards
  • Scalability and expandability support any heterogeneous environment.

How has it helped my organization?

BigFix has helped us in improving the overall endpoint posture and lifecycle management of the workstations as well as applications.

What is most valuable?

  • Compliance reporting is the best.
  • Patch management makes it easy for out-of-band and in-band patching.
  • Inventory correlation with third-party tools.

What needs improvement?

  • Complex design and administration
  • Offline management
  • Remote support on unsupported platforms
  • A large infrastructure required to implement for a medium-sized organization
  • Also, I would like to see if BigFix could be application aware for more in-depth compliance and reporting.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.
