BigFix Wins Network World 2007 “Best of the Tests”


EMERYVILLE, Calif. - BigFix Inc., delivering the industry’s only real-time IT policy enforcement and security optimization platform, has won the Network World “Best of the Tests 2007” award for remediation management, and also earned a perfect five-star score and “Recommended” rating in SC Magazine’s Policy Management Group Test. These awards recognize BigFix’s unprecedented superiority in global-scale enforcement of vital IT security, operations and compliance policies and functions via a consolidated platform and a single agent.

“Honors such as these acknowledge the unparalleled functionality of BigFix,” said Dave Robbins, president and CEO for BigFix. “With BigFix, global enterprises now have a real-time command and control platform enabling them to align their IT infrastructures with new business initiatives and compliance requirements without massive investments in new hardware, bloatware software, and intrusive endpoint agents. BigFix makes the enterprise IT infrastructure frictionless and highly functional. Only BigFix delivers real-time visibility and control of all your computers anytime, anywhere and these awards provide further validation.”

BigFix was chosen as a Network World 2007 “Best of the Tests” winner, scoring a 4.5 out of a possible five points. BigFix was one of only 12 solutions honored, chosen from among 160 products that Network World tested last year. Network World noted that BigFix is particularly successful at delivering a broad range of cross-platform assessment and remediation capabilities as well as offering almost infinite customization possibilities.

Specifically, BigFix earned perfect scores in three categories including remediation capabilities, overall management, and reporting features. Network World observed that BigFix easily handled basic remediation while excelling at custom checks and custom deployments, and its management capabilities made it the easiest product to navigate and use, while its reporting supports both standard reports and has the flexibility to create custom reports.

Additionally, BigFix also recently received a perfect five-star score and a “Recommended” rating in SC Magazine’s March 2007 Policy Management Group Test. SC Magazine noted that BigFix can “do it all when it comes to policy management.” BigFix earned perfect scores in five categories including product features, performance, documentation, support, and value for money.

SC Magazine specifically recognized BigFix’s detailed reporting capabilities, noted that the installation and configuration screens are the “most detailed explanations ever seen in a product,” and labeled BigFix’s extensive product support, available via phone, email or internet, as “impressive.”
