BigFix Racks Up Perfect Score and "Best Buy" in SC Magazine NAC Test

BigFix Network Access Control Recognized for Massive Scalability, Rich Features, Ease of Use, and Best Overall Value

EMERYVILLE, CA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) - BigFix, Inc., a leader in high-performance enterprise systems and security management solutions, reports BigFix Network Access Control received SC Magazine's Best Buy Award for NAC tools in a group product review appearing in the publication's July 2008 issue. BigFix earned a five star overall rating, as well as a perfect string of five stars across all test criteria, including features, ease of use, performance, documentation, support, and value for money.

SC Magazine stated that BigFix Network Access Control is "a true top shelf product with easier administration than most, while still including a massive number of features." In addition to BigFix Network Access Control, the group test included Bradford Networks NAC Director, ForeScout Technologies CounterACT, NetClarity NACwall Micro, Sophos NAC Advanced, StillSecure Safe Access, and Symantec Network Access Control 11.

"We've always known that BigFix NAC is a great product -- adding significant ease of management as well as automated remediation for large NAC installations," said Dave Robbins, President and CEO of BigFix. "Now with the SC Magazine review, everyone else will know it too. It's a gratifying win for our engineers as well as the customers and partners who helped us shape and perfect BigFix NAC."

BigFix Network Access Control supports NAC solutions by helping enterprises set and maintain desired configurations to proactively meet network admission standards. This helps prevent BigFix-managed computers from getting caught in NAC quarantines and automates the process of evaluating and remediating computers that deviate from prevailing configuration standards. BigFix NAC effectively stops NAC from being a "denial of service" gatekeeper function to a mechanism for preventive security configuration management.
