A new version of the BigFix Endpoint Protection suite that integrates technology from BigFix and Trend Micro has been released.


The new solution brings together the BigFix Platform and Trend Micro Core Protection Module, with BigFix endpoint firewall, network access control and client manager for third-party endpoint protection.


The suite enables customers to consolidate to a single console and a single agent and the platform offers real-time visibility, while significantly reducing the amount of hardware and software needed for keeping endpoints up to date.


Amrit Williams, CTO at BigFix, said: “The providers of legacy solutions may argue about whose widget provides the best protection against traditional viruses or worms, but they completely lack the ability to effectively manage threats in dynamic enterprise environments. The important thing is to stay ahead of events and manage down forward risks - not burn up time and money on damage control.”


Tom Miller, general manager of the enterprise business unit at Trend Micro, said: “The fast time-to-market for the BigFix-Trend Micro EPP solution really says a lot about the flexibility, openness and robustness of the BigFix unified management platform.


“Together, we can offer our respective customer bases a no-compromise best-of-both-worlds solution that enlists high performance management to enhance the effectiveness of some of the world's best content security point capabilities.”
