Will BigFix protect me against viruses?

I am worried about getting infected by viruses. Will BigFix help protect me from viruses? If I am using BigFix do I need to use an anti-virus product?


BigFix will help prevent virus and worm attacks by keeping your computer updated with the latest patches. However, BigFix should not be considered "anti-virus" software because it does not check for a comprehensive list of viruses.

To scan and protect against viruses, you should get anti-virus software, which is available from a number of different companies.
