BigFix Management Comment
David Appelbaum, senior vice president of marketing for BigFix, said, "IT dinosaurs have dominated the ecosystem for eons, but as the IT management and security climate changes, we're all learning just how fragile and ill-equipped they are to deal with life in the 21st century. Solutions in use today were simply not built for the challenges that have become standard fare for IT organizations. Architecturally, they're too heavy, require too much feeding—both in supporting IT resources and cash—and their effectiveness is only as good as their ability to operate within a distinct perimeter. Given the worldwide migration to globally distributed infrastructures with significant proportions of mobile devices, archaic dinosaur-era systems are simply doomed to extinction."
