What makes SanerNow the Best BigFix Competitor?

Immediate Patch Solution

When we find vulnerabilities in our systems, it’s crucial to fix them quickly by applying the necessary patches. If we delay or take too long, it leaves a door open for potential attacks. SanerNow’s patch management feature can help by instantly and automatically applying these patches without causing any disruptions to our operations. This process can even be scheduled, making it a seamless and continuous way to keep our systems secure.

Continuous Vulnerability Discovery

SanerNow is really good at finding and fixing vulnerabilities in your IT system quickly and continuously. It takes less than 5 minutes to scan for vulnerabilities and helps keep your digital enviroment safe. On the other hand, BigFix doesn’t focus as much on finding vulnerabilities. It’s more about managing devices and software. So, if you want a tool that’s fast at finding and fixing vulnerabilities, SanerNow is the better option for you.

Supports patching for over 400+ third-party applications

SanerNow is a great tool for keeping all your software up to date and secure. It can handle over 400+ different applications, making sure they are patched and safe. On the other hand, BigFix focuses on a smaller set of applications, mainly from big companies like Adobe, Google, and Microsoft. So, if you want to manage the security of various software, SanerNow is the better choice since it can handle a wider range of applications.
