BigFix Wins Codies for Security, Distributed Computing

EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 18 -- BigFix Inc., the only real-time IT service delivery platform that automates and optimizes enterprise computer security and management, today announced that the BigFix Platform has won two prestigious 2007 Codie Awards for Best Security Solution and Best Distributed Computing Solution at the 22nd Annual Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA) Awards. Each year, the Codie Awards celebrate outstanding achievements and vision in the software, digital information and education technology industries.

The SIIA judges are made up of a cross section of software industry experts including industry analysts, technology journalists and product reviewers, consultants and other industry experts. BigFix was chosen from more than 1,200 nominations submitted by over 600 companies, and bested finalists such as Aladdin Knowledge Systems, Appistry, Bit9, Citrix Systems, CodeRyte, CollabNet, NextSentry and Opsware.

"These Codies are further validation that IT organizations demand a consolidated management platform that can deliver both pervasive visibility and fully integrated security across their entire infrastructure, said Dave Robbins, president and CEO of BigFix. The bottom line is that legacy point solutions, tools, and frameworks cant solve the problems they need to solve in order to be useful to the enterprise. The BigFix Platform was built from the ground up for complex and distributed IT environments while combating todays ever-increasing security threats. Weve invested significant time and resources in developing our next-generation technology, so its extremely gratifying that the SIIA has resoundingly recognized our advances.

This is the third consecutive year that the SIIA has recognized the BigFix service delivery platform for its unmatched real-time visibility and control of endpoints across highly distributed, global enterprises. BigFix enables enterprise IT organizations to enforce IT security, IT policy compliance and IT systems management on all computers, anytime, anywhere while leveraging existing investments in applications, operating systems and point tools. As a result, IT organizations can focus scarce human and technology resources on new technology initiatives such as empowering mobility, SOA, SaaS or any number of other strategic IT projects.

Centering on the BigFix platform, the IT.Next vision is characterized by real-time visibility into managed devices across an entire enterprise infrastructure, and the ability to propagate and enforce policies where needed without delays or guesswork. The BigFix Platform uses a unified console and a single, multi-function endpoint agent to distribute intelligence, operations, and security while lowering costs and increasing productivity for end-users.
