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."

Unified Platform for Systems and Security Management

Today, BigFix provides 18 applications within a single-console, single-agent unified management platform addressing solution areas such as System Lifecycle Management, Endpoint Protection, Security Configuration and Vulnerability Management, and Software Asset Management. Consolidated security and system management with BigFix also extends across a remarkable breadth of computing devices and operating systems, thereby delivering the most complete enterprise IT management and security infrastructure in the market today.

    their computing assets at their fingertips and can typically handle the
    work formerly performed by multiple staff members using traditional
    solutions.

    EAL3, FIPS 140-2 Level 2, SCAP and FDCC.
