Ivanti, the provider of the Ivanti Neurons automation platform that discovers, manages, secures, and services IT assets from cloud to edge, announced three new integrated solutions: Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM (Microsoft Endpoint Manager), Ivanti Neurons for Risk-Based Vulnerability Management, and the Digital Experience Score capability within Ivanti Neurons Workspace. With these releases, Ivanti continues to deliver on its mission of enabling and securing the Everywhere Workplace by helping customers to further manage, automate, and prioritize cybersecurity and deliver secure, contextualized, and productive employee experiences.
Ivanti designed the Ivanti Neurons platform to help organizations address the exponential growth of edge devices, the unprecedented increase in cyberattacks, and the need to provide employee experiences that equal the quality of everyday consumer experiences. Today, Ivanti Neurons empowers organizations to autonomously self-heal and self-secure devices and self-service end users. Additionally, Ivanti releases updates to the platform on a quarterly basis to further help customers quickly and securely embrace the future of work. See below for details on the latest innovations:
- Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM (Microsoft Endpoint Manager): This solution enables customers to achieve Microsoft’s vision of modern management by extending existing Intune implementations to include third-party application update capabilities without the need for any additional infrastructure. Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM also provides actionable threat intelligence for IT teams to prioritize and remediate those vulnerabilities that pose the most risk to their organization. This is critical as a recent Ivanti survey revealed that 71% of IT and security professionals found patching to be overly complex and time consuming, and 53% said that organizing and prioritizing critical vulnerabilities takes up most of their time. With Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM, patch reliability insights enable users to evaluate application updates based on their real-world reliability before deploying them to avoid failed updates.
- Ivanti Neurons for Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM): This solution helps organizations measure, prioritize, and control their cybersecurity risk so they can better protect against ransomware and other dynamic cyber threats. This is critical as ransomware groups are continuing to grow in sophistication, boldness, and volume. The Ransomware Spotlight Year End Report revealed a 29% increase in CVEs associated with ransomware and a 26% increase in ransomware families in 2021 compared to the previous year. Ivanti’s proprietary Vulnerability Risk Rating (VRR) quantifies adversarial risk so customers can take risk-based prioritized action, while automation increases the efficiency and effectiveness of vulnerability management processes. Additionally, role-based access control (RBAC) plus information available in both ready-made and customizable views enable better communication and collaboration among security stakeholders.
- The Digital Experience Score within Ivanti Neurons Workspace: IT organizations are increasingly tasked with delivering great digital experiences, which can positively impact productivity, talent acquisition and retention, security, and operational agility. However, many IT organizations struggle to effectively quantify and optimize those employee experiences. The Digital Experience Score provides a 360-degree view and real-time insights into the devices, operating systems, networks, and applications that employees rely on in the Everywhere Workplace. It proactively monitors and effectively measures the impact of the total employee experience by individual, employee, division, department, and persona. It immediately gets organizations out of using ticket counts as a proxy for employee experience, as closing tickets alone is not the service-level agreement (SLA) that needs to be measured; rather, organizations need to quantify how effective IT and digital experiences (XLAs) are and seek new ways to improve them.
“I’m excited to unveil these new solutions, which massively enhance our security stack and create richer digital experiences for both IT teams and employees,” said Nayaki Nayyar, President and Chief Product Officer at Ivanti. “These products feature advanced AI capabilities and push the boundaries of innovation, while addressing the top challenges facing organizations around the world. With these solutions, customers can augment their IT and security operations with contextual insights and intelligent automation, and proactively provide better digital experiences and business outcomes.”
