EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- BigFix Inc., a leader in real-time IT security and management solutions for the distributed enterprise, has released BigFix Discovery 7, the latest version of its real-time security and systems management platform. The BigFix platform is the foundation for all BigFix solutions including award-winning Data Leak Prevention (DLP), AntiThreat, Security Configuration Management, Asset Discovery and Patch Management, as well as enabling pervasive and continuous enforcement of critical IT policies and processes on all enterprise endpoints. BigFix Discovery 7 showcases several significant enhancements that include business continuity and high availability features, support for virtualized environments, greater remote endpoint control functionality, OS deployment, and expanded ability for end users to perform updates and remediation functions on-demand.
Discovery 7 is a quantum leap forward for IT management and security professionals to finally achieve real control of their infrastructures, said Dave Robbins, President and CEO of BigFix. To really meet business imperatives IT has to operate effectively in 3D across data centers, desktops, and mobile devices. With the BigFix Discovery 7 platform, organizations can see, change, and continuously enforce critical IT policies and processes globally, or on individual endpoints, with a single agent and console. Other vendors can operate in one or two dimensions, but no other technology in the market delivers what BigFix Discovery 7 does, regardless of the hype coming out of Redmond, Cupertino, or Santa Clara.
Global enterprises need a single, highly reliable solution that ensures fine-grained, real-time security policy enforcement without handicapping operational agility, said David Giambruno, vice president, Global Infrastructure Service Delivery at Revlon. BigFix 7.0 uniquely enables IT professionals to master increasingly dangerous threat environments, as well as crucial compliance and operations initiatives.
