BigFix SCCM Comparison

How would you compare this solution to SCCM?

Ben Cotton
Founder at CyFIR
Compared to SCCM it's much more robust, much more capable, and you can be much more targeted with SCCM. The challenge with SCCM is it doesn't have much of a discovery module so if we're going in blind to a network, we really want to know what's there, not what they think is there. BigFix provides us that picture.

It's much more flexible than SCCM. There are more things we can do and especially the cross-platform support is better.

BigFix has faster ROI than SCCM. It's more scalable, requires a lot less hardware, has faster reporting, quicker data to get out of it; it's better.

Compared to SCCM, I always feel like I'm fighting the tool. I do not feel that way with BigFix.

It's really easy to say SCCM is free so you'll just use it but you don't know what you're missing until you actually give BigFix a shot and try it. It's dramatically easier. It significantly reduces the time and effort that it takes to do things and it's more certain. You know what you've got rather than getting in there and guessing each time.

BigFix is way better than SCCM. SCCM doesn't do MAC OS or Linux. It takes a lot of time to manage, it's just a lot of work, there are all kinds of ports that you need to open, and it's just a pain to manage.

SCCM is a complex solution that needs a lot of licenses which means a lot of money. It only supports Windows and BigFix can be deployed across Linux, Microsoft operating systems.

The main reason why we chose BigFix is because at the time we were looking for a single solution for multiple OS, and SCCM at the time couldn't handle a Windows, Linux, and AIX coverage as Big Fix does. I haven't directly managed SCCM myself, but I do feel that it's a much simpler set up, simpler configuration. It's better accepted by our marketing solutions, to get into some of the restricted VLANs, we have a much easier time connecting to restricted LANs than they do. BigFix has better reporting, they're just better integration. The one part where I think SCCM is better is in the remote control. The BigFix solution remote control is a little dated.

We also looked at Microsoft SCCM. We chose BigFix because it's more inclusive, it's centered towards Microsoft and Windows. There's a lot more content and things like that so, it's much more in-depth and widespread than SCCM.

SCCM will do most of the Mac stuff I want but doesn't give you the highly targeted capabilities I have in deploying anything I want to endpoints in any configuration that I choose.

It's far superior and there's no comparison to SCCM. It is so easy to navigate in the console. Everything's in a single view within a fix it or a task. You can tell what actions are taking place versus having to go through separate menus in your console to figure it out. Just that alone and knowing instantly what your environment looks like based off of content makes BigFix superior.

It's a night and day difference between BigFix and SCCM. Anyone who's used SCCM before knows that BigFix provides a far better product in scalability, reporting, and the accuracy of patching.
