HCL Software is pleased to announce an update to BigFix WebUI. This release introduces a range of enhancements, including new features, functionality, and improved security.
BigFix WebUI General Release
Enablement for BigFix 10 new features !
BigFix Insights: Administered and configured through WebUI, BigFix Insights enables organizations to quickly visualize risk as well as costs, while easily finding the endpoint issues that matter most, to drive action throughout the organization. The results are quick responses, streamlined processes and improved security posture.
Modern Client Management: Enables the consolidation of multiple vendors, cost reduction and complexity while managing Windows 10 and macOS endpoints with simple enrollment and policy management! Take advantage of new filters and management capabilities within the WebUI to improve efficiency and streamline operations.
Multicloud Management: Enables administrators to have full 360-degree visibility, control and compliance enforcement of both cloud and on-premise endpoints from a single solution! Take advantage of new filters (including cloud provider, and tags) and management capabilities within the WebUI to improve efficiency and streamline operations.
New Inline Reporting feature in the WebUI !
Inline Reporting is a new feature that provides WebUI users a better visualization experience to improve their operational efficiency. It includes the following features:
Render visualizations of real-time data summary, categorized in various dimensions, for Device, Patch, and Deployment pages in WebUI.
Dynamically update visualizations based on data refined by filters or research.
Export data to csv or xlsx files for additional consumption.
Hidden content now respected within the WebUI !
WebUI now appropriately hides or displays Fixlet content, respecting what BigFix operators designate in the BigFix Console as hidden, or the configuration set in the BigFix Administration tool. This allows organizations to fine tune what their BigFix operators can see and do within the WebUI.
All these new features require BigFix Platform v10: BigFix 10 Platform is now available!. However, new sites with security improvements, fixes and other enhancements apply to all BigFix platform versions.
Beginning with this release, Profile Manager application in the WebUI is being deprecated. It will be removed in the future, as Modern Client Management provides equivalent and additional functionality.
