BigFix Patch for Ubuntu provides Fixlets that you use to manage the security updates and service packs that Ubuntu releases. These Fixlets are available through the Patches for Ubuntu sites.

BigFix Patch for Ubuntu keeps your Ubuntu clients current with the latest updates and service packs. Patch management is available through the Patches for Ubuntu sites. For each new security update that becomes available, BigFix releases a Fixlet that identifies and updates all the computers in your enterprise that need it.

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 agent checks the operating system version, processors, and the existing installed packages to determine when and if a patch is necessary.

Using Fixlets, you can 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.
