Unified Endpoint Manager
Ivanti Asset Intelligence discovers what hardware and software exists in an organisation’s environment, tracks usage, and identifies areas where IT assets can work harder. The solution helps IT reclaim unused licences and reallocate software to reduce IT spend. Plus, with compliance management software, IT can share timely information with auditors verifying compliance to ensure software audit survival.
Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager
Ivanti Endpoint Manager is a proven client management solution that helps IT do more than keep the business up and running. It is core to: 1) discovering everything that touches the network; 2) automating software delivery; 3) managing all the devices users access; and 4) integrating actions with multiple IT solutions—all from a single, unified management suite.
This solution brings together best-practices protection, controlled from one console, to prevent, detect, and remediate. Organisations gain media protection, remote endpoint control, security diagnostics, flexible dashboards and reporting, and more—with app control and automated patch management. Detect and prevent threats, respond swiftly to infections, and provide employees the tools they need to be effective.
Benefits to Cypress Fairbanks
Reliable patch management and remote control
With more than 700 software packages, Cypress Fairbanks can push out software, updates, and patches to computers from a central point.
720 Hours Saved every Quarter
Historically, IT would have to visit all 54 elementary schools to instal new testing software each year. Now the team runs an update job automatically overnight and at week’s end.
Accelerated, simplified Windows 10 migration
Cypress Fairbanks employed the Ivanti imaging process to migrate all student laptops to Windows 10. IT finished early.
Ability to monitor migration progress
During the rollout to Windows 10, the IT team used Ivanti Xtraction to display rolling statistics on a 70-inch monitor in its operations room.
