IBM is making another acquisition today, buying up computer security software company BigFix. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

BigFix security software identifies all of a company’s PCs, laptops, server and then monitors and flags IT administrators when devices are not in compliance with corporate IT security standards. Its software promises to make security fixes across at least 500,000 machines in a matter of minutes.

IBM says that this acquisition is important to helping Big Blue’s customers protect themselves against realtime security threats. IBm plans to include BigFix is a part of its Dat Center offerings. BigFix’s software is used by more than 700 customers including Miami-Dade County Public School BlueCross/BlueShield of Alabama, Allianz Global Investors and Princeton University and SunTrust Bank.

This year alone, Big Blue has acquired Coremetrics, Sterling Commerce, Cast Iron Systems, Initiate and Intelliden.
