BigFix Achieves Top "Best Buy" Rating in SC Magazine Endpoint Security Test

BigFix Recognized for Offering Superior Protection Against All Types of Endpoint Security Threats

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - September 9, 2008) - BigFix, Inc., a leader in high-performance enterprise systems and security management solutions, reports BigFix products received SC Magazine's "Best Buy" designation in the magazine's Endpoint Security Group Test appearing in the September 2008 issue. BigFix earned a five-star overall rating, receiving a total of 29 out of 30 stars, with perfect five star scores in the Group Test's Features, Performance, Ease of Use, Support, and Value for Money categories.

SC Magazine stated, "The BigFix product is very robust and, in the area of endpoint security, it is one of the few products which crosses the boundaries of types of endpoint control. The BigFix tool provides everything from anti-spyware to anti-virus to enforcement of encryption on all removable media. These features, as well as all of the others, are controlled through a single console, making it very convenient for administrators to define the security posture of their organization." In its overall verdict, SC Magazine wrote, "The more time we spend evaluating the product, the more impressed we become with it. We rate this product as our Best Buy."

"We believe the main strength of the BigFix platform is in its ability to consolidate multiple security and system management functions through a single agent, single infrastructure, and single console to address security and system management challenges at enterprise scale," said Dave Robbins, President and CEO of BigFix. "The old debate about single-purpose best-of-breed solutions verses multi-functional integrated approaches is obsolete. With BigFix you get both. As we move forward, our vision remains fixed on helping our customers do much more for their constituents despite constrained budget and headcount resources."

The BigFix Discovery 7 Platform implements a distributed single agent, single infrastructure approach to enterprise scale security and systems management. By giving customers comprehensive real-time visibility and control over an interdisciplinary collection of anti-malware, security configuration management, intrusion defense, security policy enforcement, asset discovery and lifecycle management services, BigFix products and solutions help sharply reduce security risks and improve quality of IT service delivery at lower cost than alternative approaches.
