BigFix Patch for Mac provides unified, real-time visibility and enforcement to deploy and manage patches to all Mac endpoints from a single console. It keeps your Mac clients current with the latest Apple security updates and service packs for your OS X and applications.

Use Fixlet® to manage large numbers of patches and updates. From the console, you can access the Fixlet® through the available sites:
  • Patches for Mac OS X
  • Updates for Mac Applications
Note: Superseded Fixlet® content are in the Patches for Mac OS X (Superseded) site. Contact your Technical Sales Representative if you need access to the superseded content.

BigFix® clients identify when and if a patch is needed. For each new supported update that becomes available, BigFix releases a Fixlet® that identifies and updates all the computers in your enterprise that need it. For information on the supported updates, Supported operating systems and applications.

With a few keystrokes, the BigFix® Console operator can apply the patch to all the relevant computers and visualize its progress as it deploys throughout the network. The BigFix client checks the operating system version, file versions, the language of the system, and other relevant factors to determine when and if a patch is necessary.

You can use Fixlets to manage large numbers of updates and patches with comparative ease, enabling automated, highly targeted deployment on any schedule that you want. Large downloads can be phased to optimize network bandwidth and the entire deployment process can be monitored, graphed, and recorded for inventory or audit control.
