Endpoint Management

BigFix Patch Management

Automated patch management to help reduce patch cycle times from days and weeks to hours or minutes

IBM BigFix Patch provides an automated, simplified patching process that is administered from a single console. It provides real-time visibility and enforcement to deploy and manage patches to all endpoints – on and off the corporate network.

Clients have reported seeing more than 98 percent first-pass patch success rates. The solution not only increases the effectiveness of the patch process, but it cuts operational costs and reduces patch cycle times.

IBM BigFix Patch:

  • Provides automated patch management to hundreds of thousands of endpoints for multiple operating systems and applications – regardless of location, connection type or status.

  • Applies only the correct patches required by the endpoint.

  • Gives you greater visibility into patch compliance with flexible, real-time monitoring and reporting.

  • Provides real-time visibility and control from a single management console.

  • Proactively reduces security risk by streamlining remediation cycles from weeks to hours.

Provides automated patch management to hundreds of thousands of endpoints

  • Patches 90+ OS types and versions including Microsoft Windows, UNIX, Linux and Mac operating systems.

  • Delivers patches to endpoints for third-party applications from vendors including Adobe, Mozilla, Apple and Java, along with customer-supplied patches.

  • Supports a variety of endpoints. These include servers, notebooks, desktops and specialized equipment such as point-of-sale (POS) devices, ATMs and self-service kiosks.

  • Supports patching of online and offline virtual machines, including roaming devices using Internet connections so that virtual and cloud environments have the same level of security as physical systems.

  • Can support up to 250,000 endpoints from a single management server.

Applies only the correct patches

  • Creates patch policies using IBM Fixlet® messages, which wrap the update with policy information such as patch dependencies, applicable systems and severity level.

  • Uses an intelligent agent on every endpoint to enforce and assess patch compliance. It recognizes which patches are required for that machine, then automatically retrieves and applies the needed updates.

  • Deploys patches more efficiently, even over low-bandwidth or globally distributed networks.

Gives you greater visibility into patch compliance

  • Automatically assesses the endpoint status once a patch is deployed.

  • Confirms successful installation and updates the management server. This step supports compliance requirements, which require definitive proof of patch installation.

  • Helps to establish, document and prove compliance with patch management processes. Supports compliance with government regulations, service level agreements (SLAs) and corporate policies.

  • Provides proof of continuous compliance, which can help you pass audits and comply with regulations.

  • Can enforce policies and help you quickly report on compliance to improve your organization’s audit readiness.

Provides real-time visibility and control

  • Provides integrated web reporting. This allows users, administrators, executives, management and others to view dashboards and receive reports showing patch management progress in real time.

  • Indicates which patches were deployed, when they were deployed, who deployed them and to which endpoints.

  • Uses the intelligent agents to continuously monitor endpoint states, including patch levels, and reports them to a management server.

  • Compares endpoint compliance against defined policies, such as mandatory patch levels.

Proactively reduces security risk

  • Allows you to create reports showing which endpoints need updates, and then distribute those updates within minutes.

  • Allows IT administrators to safely and rapidly patch Windows, Linux, UNIX and Mac operating systems with no domain-specific knowledge or expertise.

  • Automatically remediates problems related to previously applied patches.
