Platform Overview

This section provides you with an overview of BigFix Platform.

BigFix enables organizations to securely manage even the most intermittently connected mobile users, delivering continuous updates regardless of connectivity to the internal corporate network and enforcing policies offline to ensure regulatory compliance.

BigFix V9.2.6 provides the following new features and enhancements:

  • New reports within the Web Reports component to provide more analytics on hardware and software inventory and patch information
  • Microsoft Windows 64-bit support added for all BigFix server components (allowing the components to access more than 4 GB of memory) and Microsoft Windows 10 support added for the agent.
  • Supports use of SAML V2.0 authentication via LDAP-backed SAML identity providers for the Web Reports and the Web UI. This support can be used to enforce two-factors authentication for BigFix with Common Access Cards (CAC), Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards, or other factors. For more information, see SAML V2.0 Authentication Support.
