As a company, IBM faces the same security threats and attacks that other organizations face in protecting its endpoints, infrastructure and data for over 425,000 employees. And of course, like other organizations, IBM continues to look for ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency.
Likewise, other organizations may also be seeing the number of nonstandard endpoints increase significantly, like IBM has through:
So why not use your own products to address these challenges? IBM is doing just that. IBM has begun a worldwide internal deployment of IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager software, built on BigFix technology, initially to address challenges of patch management, security configuration and software distribution.
Some results from the internal IBM pilot deployment of the Tivoli Endpoint Manager solution included:
David Merrill, Senior Technical Staff Member, IBM Chief Information Security Office has indicated that “Leveraging this solution internally will deliver an outstanding ROI while very rapidly transforming and strengthening IBM’s endpoint security.”
IBM had already deployed Tivoli Endpoint Manager to over 550,000 endpoints within six months, out of a total of 750,000 Windows, Mac, and Linux endpoints targeted by the end of 2011. This is the largest and fastest internal deployment within IBM’s history.
