BigFix New Deal Competitive Upgrade Discounts Kick Off Enterprise Systems Management Recovery Plan

The World's Best Patch Management for Up to Half the Cost of Other Patching Tools Maximizes IT Budgets and Capacity While Reducing Costs and Risk

EMERYVILLE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/17/09 -- BixFix, Inc., a leader in high-performance enterprise systems and security management solutions, has taken action to maximize enterprise IT budgets with competitive upgrade pricing for BigFix Patch Management when migrating from incumbent competitive products. For the competitive upgrade program, BigFix is offering BigFix Patch Management at up to 50 percent off the quoted renewal price for equivalent solutions from LANDesk, Lumension, Microsoft, Shavlik, Symantec/Altiris, and others. BigFix New Deal pricing enables an easy and cost-effective transition to what is widely regarded as the world's best patch management solution.

"It's time for a Software New Deal," said BigFix CEO Dave Robbins. "Too many software companies charge premium prices for commodity products that just don't work as advertised. This is simply unacceptable given today's economic environment. BigFix Patch Management is not only the world's best solution of its kind as validated in independent product reviews, it is now the most affordable. With BigFix Patch Management, customers can really do more -- and do it better -- at the best possible price."
