IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager


IBM Tivoli® Endpoint Manager—built on BigFix® technology—helps you achieve smarter, faster endpoint management. It combines endpoint and security management into a single solution that enables your team to see and manage physical and virtual endpoints—servers, desktops, roaming laptops, and specialized equipment such as point-of-sale devices, ATMs and self-service kiosks. As threats emerge, the software allows you to rapidly remediate, protect, and report on endpoints in real-time. By automating time-intensive tasks across complex networks, you can control costs while reducing risk and supporting compliance. Tivoli Endpoint Manager can be deployed in days for any network size or configuration, providing a very rapid return on investment.

For over 15 years IBM Endpoint Manager (BigFix) has helped clients of all sizes deliver greater value back to the business at a lower run rate.
