Verify if BigFix is installed
Since BigFix allows us to track a computer, associate the computer with a specific user and collect system specifics (e.g., OS, CPU, RAM, hard drive space), we are able to determine if a system can support encryption. BigFix can also be leveraged to verify patch levels and anti-virus/anti-malware software versions.
Note: Having BigFix on your computer is also important because UCSF is implementing Network Access Control. This will prevent computers without encryption and potentially without anti-malware or anti-virus protection or minimum patch levels from connecting to the UCSF network.
How to verify BigFix installation
On a Windows computer, click on the icon with the purple circle and a green arrow in the system tray (lower right-hand corner of your screen).
On your Mac OS X computer, in the upper-right of the menu bar near the clock, look for the purple circle with a green arrow and click on it.
How to install BigFix
If you do not see the BigFix icon, download the appropriate installer for your computer or server (e.g., Windows, Mac OS X, Linux).
