Endpoint Protection for Business (EPP) Questions
Aug 19 2021

Hello peers,

I am working as an IT member at a research company with 200 employees (at most).

I am looking at the pros and cons of SCCM and BigFix software. 

At the moment, we are using BigFix just for updating and I think if we switch to SCCM that would be a more complicated and costly solution because of my company's infrastructure and requirements.

Thank you!
