BigFix Technology Integrated Into Orange Business Services' "Secure My Device" Managed Services Offering

Expanding OEM Relationships Spread BigFix Footprint Globally

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - BigFix, Inc., a leader in real-time IT security and management solutions for the distributed enterprise, reports that its technology, including the BigFix Platform and BigFix Agent, has been integrated as key enabling elements in Orange Business Services' "Secure My Device" managed security and system management solution for distributed computers.

Dave Robbins, BigFix CEO, said, "The relationship with Orange Business Services marks an important step in developing new channels to meet global demand for simplified, consolidated, low-cost ways to maximize return on investment from distributed IT infrastructures. BigFix is clearly getting traction with world-class IT service and solution providers, and we look forward to expanding these relationships as our business moves forward."

Orange Business Services' "Secure My Device" Offering

Announced November 20, 2008 by Orange Business Services' business unit of France Telecom, "Secure My Device" complements the company's "Business Everywhere" and "Mobile Office from Orange Business Services" offerings. "Secure My Device" is a customer-adaptable solution that covers many security requirements, including:

--  Central Visibility -- Central reporting and management provided by a
    global solution gives an IT manager end-to-end visibility of what security
    policies and rules end-users have on their PC.
    
--  Easy and Rapid Roll Out With Low Operational Risk -- Orange Business
    Services host the platforms in secure data centers, manage, maintain and
    support the core service infrastructure without a dedicated customer
    infrastructure.
    
--  Flexible Security and Management -- The consolidated compliance check
    and patch distribution with security policies can be adjusted per category
    or per use of devices. The security policies and rules range from mere
    compliance and patch to a full Network Access Control feature.
    
--  Cost Control -- An adaptive pricing model allows for "pay-as-you-go"
    pricing in which customers only pay for the options chosen.
    
--  Future Proof -- The solution helps mitigate zero-day attacks and is
    ready for today's and tomorrow's security challenges.
    

Working closely with BigFix, Orange Business Services provides a unique service architecture in order to design and deliver a new security service into the market quickly and effectively. By focusing on key security requirements, Orange Business Services relieves IT organizations from the routine core service infrastructure management burden and keeps them focused on end-user device security.
