BigFix Partners With SEWP IV Prime Contract Holders

BigFix, Alvarez & Associates, and iGov to Provide Products and Services to All Federal Agencies

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - October 9, 2007) - BigFix, Inc., a global leader in real-time IT security and management solutions for the distributed Enterprise, today announced it is partnering with Alvarez & Associates, LLC (services disabled veteran owned small businesses) and iGov (small business classification), which have been chosen as SEWP IV Prime Contract holders. BigFix will work through both organizations to provide enterprise solutions to the federal government via the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) IV contract vehicle. SEWP IV contracts are seven-year, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts that were awarded by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

"Government agencies are centralizing IT operations as they face significant security, cost containment, and governance compliance challenges, which is why they are accelerating their acquisitions of BigFix, a consolidated IT security and operations platform that enables real-time visibility and control of distributed desktop, mobile and server computers," said Dave Robbins, president and CEO, BigFix, Inc. "We are extremely proud to be represented on the NASA SEWP IV contract by Alvarez and iGov. BigFix now has access to a streamlined and simplified procurement vehicle for federal government organizations, and we look forward to working with the U.S. government to improve IT security and operations for years to come."

"We welcome the opportunity to work with NASA to provide unequalled technology, dedicated people and trusted professional services support," said Everett Alvarez, chief executive officer of Alvarez & Associates. "Our firm has a dedicated focus on the federal marketplace, and partnering with BigFix allows us to provide unequalled endpoint security technologies and executive management services to a much greater pool of federal government agencies and SDVOSBs."

"Having the SEWP IV contract ensures that iGov's service delivery methodology, the iGov Implementation Methodology (iGIM), can provide a full lifecycle view of any project for any federal agency," said Gordon Hunter, President and GM, iGov Public Sector. "By partnering with BigFix, we can provide a full security platform across the enterprise to complement our lifecycle services for any federal agency."

SEWP IV was awarded through full and open competition. It offers low prices, the lowest contract surcharge, and the easiest and fastest ordering procedure. Through the SEWP contract, agencies can locate an exact fit solution for their requirements that is provided by leading hardware and software manufacturers at the best overall value. Products are available for ordering by all NASA centers, all federal agencies and their approved contractors. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), for example, has made NASA SEWP IV its mandatory contract for the acquisition of technology.
