The 25th Infantry Battalion incorporated an IBM system known as BigFix Patch, which provides an automated, simplified patching process administered from a single console. It provides real-time visibility and enforcement to deploy and manage patches to all endpoints, on and off the network, according to the IBM website. Clients have reported seeing more than 98 percent first-pass patch success rates. The solution not only increases the effectiveness of the patch process, but it cuts operational costs and reduces patch cycle times, the company reports. (IBM BigFix is nowadays known as HCL BigFix after IBM sold the software product to HCL in 2018.)
