Pricing and Cost Advice
"You get what we call the Platform Edition, which you get for free. The patch service is maybe $0.50 per workstation per month. Then there's the basic server cost, which is about $1.50 per server per month. You also get into Lifecycle which does power management, OSD remote control, and those types of things, and that might be about 10 times the price - which works out to about $13 per server and, maybe $5 per workstation per month.""The price is very fair.""The price is reasonable, but our customers find it expensive.""It is too costly. It is one of the best tools, but because of pricing, not all clients support it. Its licensing is on a yearly basis.""The license is subscription-based."

With BigFix, enterprises can protect endpoints running Windows, UNIX, Linux, and macOS by achieving greater than 98% first-pass patch success rates and enabling continuous endpoint compliance.

It helps you to work more efficiently by scheduling automatic backup activities and rolling out configuration changes to multiple devices at the same time.
