Bigfix Endpoint Management
BigFix Endpoint Management is a comprehensive system management software solution that can manage a variety of devices including desktops, laptops, mobile devices, and other endpoints running Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, UNIX, as well as mobile operating systems like iOS, Android, Symbian, and Windows Phone. The software provides administrators with advanced features such as remote control, patch management, software distribution, operating system deployment, network access protection, and hardware and software inventory.
Originally developed by BigFix, the company was later acquired by IBM and became part of their portfolio.

In 2019, IBM sold BigFix to HCL Technologies.
