BigFix Stability

Michelle McGough
BigFix Offering Manager at a tech services company
I haven't had issues with stability other than that sometimes when an issue needed attention I didn't always know at first because the solution kept running. Over time I had to develop monitoring indicators specific to the customer environment where I was working so that I could get in front of an issue rather than find out later when it might have an impact. It was extremely rare that the solution stopped working and to be honest, it was network related - our fault - 99% of the time. View full review »

Until our most recent information security system that we stood up, which is unrelated to BigFix, BigFix was our most solid system, in terms of how much engineering effort it requires to keep up and running, relative to the number of servers involved. It's a pretty solid system. We do run into bugs and interesting functional quirks, usually around how the endpoint agent reports into the relays. It mostly just takes care of itself, for the most part. We do have to do a little care and feeding, but it's mostly self-sufficient. View full review »

I've been admining the system for two and a half years now and other than server side issues we have never had stability problems. My core system is four servers and they're not maxed out. We've never had any performance issues. View full review »

CEO/ Chief Strategist at GreenWave Tech Corp
The stability is paramount. It has definitely reduced the need for multiple products down at the endpoint, it's reduced the number of agents needed at the endpoint, and overall because the product was created so many years ago when networks were not nearly as robust as they are now, the improvement of the product over time along with the improvement of the stability of large networks, has coincided. It is as stable today as when you could only transfer 15 bits across the line. View full review »

Product Line Manager at a tech company with 10,001+ employees
The core capability is very strong and hasn't changed a lot. Sometimes it is harder than others to get to some of the newer features, mostly just because we have a very large install base, and so having the time to roll out new capabilities is hard. Overall the stability and the upper trend of the capability is very good. View full review »

It's very stable. We haven't had any major issues from it. Most times, we have false positives. Our people tell us that BigFix is doing something and we go back and look and it doesn't. View full review »

Joshua Hickok
Senior Security Consultant at Tech Data Corporation
Stability is incredible. A lot of times people will let it run forever without touching it because it just keeps going. Once you stand up the solution, there's very little that you have to do. Just the occasional update and that's it. View full review »

Technica6700
Technical Lead at a university with 1-10 employees
The stability is generally pretty good. The one thing that we came across is the battle between load on endpoints and load on our servers and relays versus how quickly, effectively and reliably actions can be taken. I'd like to not have to take an action on a system while I'm working with someone and then have to say whether something will happen between five seconds or thirty minutes from that point.
