HCL, a leading global technology company which recently acquired BigFix as part of a select software portfolio from IBM, elected blu Eye as a premium partner to market and service its proprietary, highly acclaimed endpoint management and security platform in Europe.


Under the agreement, blu Eye will provide software sales and technical, implementation and integration services including ancillary governance, risk and compliance consultancy to new and existing BigFix customers.


The HCL BigFix endpoint management and security automation platform comprises several components; Compliance, Lifecycle, Inventory and Patch management, enabling IT operations and security teams to collaborate more effectively from a single tool, regardless of the OS and whether the asset is on or off the network, thus cutting operational costs, compressing endpoint management cycles, enforcing compliance in real-time and improving productivity, service and coverage.


The BigFix product suite can be licensed as a bundle or as individual components and blu Eye intends to start offering several BigFix features and functionalities as a service, combining sophisticated and innovative asset and information management and security services with the solution.


“We were looking for a partner with a much more diverse skillset beyond the traditional software sales and technical capabilities. With a profound understanding of customers challenges in monitoring compliance with the myriad of ever-changing privacy, data security regulations and complex interdependencies and relationships that define the business and IT performance, blu Eye was the perfect candidate. They offer the experience, expertise, enthusiasm and vision required to take our product to the next level in the market as we enhance our BigFix capabilities”, said Mark Phinick, HCL VP of BigFix Sales and Services.


“Organizations often underestimate the onerous administrative tasks and the operational, financial and reputational risks and consequences associated with security threats, data breaches, violation of policies, regulatory and legal requirements and validation of software license usage” added Florian Forster, MD of blu Eye and blu Systems GmbH.


“Applying the appropriate measures and processes to counter these vulnerabilities is crucial and takes diligent preparation, a holistic approach, attention to detail, a forensic mind and a reliable and trusted toolset. We are proud to have assembled an exceptional team of technical experts and senior IP, data analytics and compliance professionals, headed by Wolf Opitz, former KPMG IP and computer forensic auditor and Murad Saleh, former IBM enterprise software compliance lead to perform and deliver our services.”


Rü Veitl, Board Member of blu Gruppe concluded; “We continue to see great things coming from BigFix, especially since HCL assumed responsibility for BigFix development and support in 2017.  We are excited to collaborate with HCL unifying the BigFix endpoint management and security solutions with our governance, risk and compliance practices to provide a unique customer service and experience in cyber-security threat prevention, asset protection, remediation and control.”
