The HCL BigFix endpoint management platform provides Nutanix customers with a single pane of glass to manage every endpoint in the enterprise, including the ability to streamline Nutanix endpoint management processes, consolidate management tools, ensure continuous compliance, and deliver intelligent automation.

BigFix can remediate guest VMs faster than any other solution, delivering greater than 98% first-pass patch success rates. Additionally, BigFix helps IT Operations to deploy software, leverage server automation, inventory software licenses, and remotely control desktops. BigFix can help secure and protect endpoints running on Nutanix by leveraging the thousands of out-of-the-box security checks, ensuring continuous compliance that helps prevent ransomware and other cyberattacks.

Nutanix customers can also provide sub-capacity reports of guest VMs using BigFix Inventory. By integrating BigFix and the Nutanix Hypervisor, sub-capacity information of guest VMs can be collected and uploaded to the BigFix Inventory database for subsequent reporting purposes.

Recently, the BigFix Platform and core modules have received Nutanix-ready AVH certification, permitting the installation of the BigFix Enterprise Server, relays, consoles and modules on guest VMs running on Nutanix. BigFix Lifecycle, BigFix Compliance and BigFix Inventory have been thoroughly tested to run on Nutanix offering greater versatility and performance for BigFix deployments.
