Easy to set up, simple to manage, and is easily accessible
Once in a while, some servers don't get patched, usually from our end of things. Maybe a server hasn't been reported in the last few weeks, and we don't know whether that server has been decommissioned or not. That's not on in BigFix in particular. The relevant language takes a little getting used to since it's not used anywhere else in the industry. It's just in the BigFix environment. If there's anything that could be improved, it would be making the relevant language more readable and more common. We'd like the solution to be agentless, similar to, for example, Ansible.

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price is very fair."
"We have a subscription-based contract with BigFix."
"So, the pricing is slightly more expensive than the others. I have to keep buying licenses every time I add a new device."
"The tool's price continues to go up. The cost per endpoint can vary, ranging from approximately 30 to 80 dollars per year. Compared to other products, pricing is in the middle. You need to buy an additional database license, but most users already have it."
"The price of the solution is high. There are not any additional fees from the standard license."
"It is too costly. It is one of the best tools, but because of pricing, not all clients support it. Its licensing is on a yearly basis."
"You get what we call the Platform Edition, which you get for free. The patch service is maybe $0.50 per workstation per month. Then there's the basic server cost, which is about $1.50 per server per month. You also get into Lifecycle which does power management, OSD remote control, and those types of things, and that might be about 10 times the price - which works out to about $13 per server and, maybe $5 per workstation per month."
"The product is less costly when compared to other solutions, and this is a good solid solution for what we have paid."
