Latest Network Computing rolling review of Patch Management products, this one focused on BigFix Enterprise Suite (here)
BigFix is unique in our testing thus far in that its core patching functionality is an integrated part of a larger framework focused on all aspects of endpoint security and management. This framework, the BigFix Enterprise Suite, can include IT policy management and BigFix’s own antivirus product as well as the patching functionality tested. Not surprisingly, that makes for a more complex user interface than we’ve seen in pure patch management products. It took us some time to get a handle on BigFix’s modus operandi, but once we did, we found the interface and operations fairly straightforward.
