“BigFix makes … work very simple.”

We love endorsements like that, especially when they come from respected professionals like Jason Cordell of CBI. Cordell has 20 years of experience in the industry and now works at a firm that specializes in helping clients make sure their data is secure, compliant and available.

Enforcing Compliance With BigFix

Cordell writes an ongoing blog series about IBM BigFix. His latest post focuses on compliance enforcement and remediation — two areas that are often fraught with complexity for most customers.

He discussed ways to:

  • Stay in compliance with a complicated, ever-changing web of federal regulatory guidelines when configuring and managing a server-workstation setup.
  • Identify compliance status and see configuration drift within minutes.
  • Automatically remediate noncompliance and enforce continuous compliance across all endpoints.

Further Reading

Check out Cordell’s full blog for all the details. It’s a short and worthwhile read for any security professional interested in learning how technology can help keep client data safe, secure and out of the hands of the wrong people.
