Mitsubishi Corp offers BigFix SW to SaaS providers

By : |January 31, 2010 0

TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsubishi Corporation, today announced that it has launched a business to offer the PCs and Servers unified management software of BigFix Inc., through Infosec Corporation.

The software from BigFix unifies business endpoint (PCs & Servers) management. Currently, it is being used to manage more than 8,000,000 PCs, servers, and mobile devices, said a press release.

By introducing the software as an operational platform, SaaS providers can manage several hundred thousand PCs with just a single server. The ultra-lightweight agent program facilitates upload of multiple functions, providing unified management of security, inventory, and power.

Mitsubish has offered the software to Hitachi Systems and Services, Ltd. (Hitachi Systems), for use in the latter’s SaaS type endpoint security service, "EdgeScreen".

Customers can begin receiving "EdgeScreen" security services employing the BigFix software from Hitachi Systems’ monitoring center beginning February 1, 2010.

Market growth in Saas is expected, in part because small and mid-sized enterprises will not be required to invest in these services in order to benefit from them.

Mitsubishi Corporation is one of BigFix’s main partners, and both the trading company and its subsidiary IS have pledged strong support for SaaS providers like Hitachi Systems to expand their businesses, the release added.
