Ivanti has just announced the release of 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, integrated into Ivanti Neurons Workspace. With these releases, Ivanti remains true to its mission to enable and secure the Everywhere Workplace, helping companies manage, automate and prioritize cybersecurity, delivering secure, effective and context-aware employee experiences.
Ivanti has designed the Ivanti Neurons platform in response to the exponential growth of devices and the unprecedented increase in cyberattacks on organizations, as well as the need to provide employee user experiences that are equal in quality to those of the consumer. Today, Ivanti Neurons enables enterprises to autonomously self-heal and self-protect both devices and users. Ivanti releases updates to its platform on a quarterly basis, helping to achieve rapid and secure adoption of Everywhere Workplace in the enterprise environment. These are some of its latest innovations:
- Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM (Microsoft Endpoint Manager). This solution enables enterprises to align with Microsoft’s ‘modern’ management vision by extending existing Intune applications to include third-party update capabilities, without the need to add any additional infrastructure. Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM also delivers actionable threat intelligence, enabling IT managers to prioritize and remediate the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to their business. According to a recent study From Ivanti, 71% of IT professionals find patching too complex, and 53% acknowledge that organizing Y prioritizing critical vulnerabilities takes up most of their time. Ivanti Neurons Patch for MEM provides information on patch reliability, allowing users to assess application updates based on their reliability prior to deployment, thus avoiding failed update rollouts.

- Ivanti Neurons for Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM). This solution helps companies measure, prioritize and control their cybersecurity risk, in order to improve their protection against ransomware and other dynamic cyberthreats. This is a critical factor as ransomware groups are becoming more numerous and sophisticated. In 2021 and in relation to 2020, the Ransomware Spotlight Year End Report revealed a 29% increase in CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) associated with ransomware, and a 26% increase in ransomware families. Ivanti’s Vulnerability Risk Rating (VRR) measures the risk of vulnerability, allowing companies to prioritize their actions based on risk. For its part, automation increases the efficiency and effectiveness of vulnerability management processes. In addition, role-based access control (RBAC) along with the information available, both in generated and customizable views, enable better communication and collaboration between cybersecurity stakeholders.
- Digital Experience Score (integrated in Ivanti Neurons Workspace). CIncreasingly, IT teams have to take responsibility for delivering great digital experiences, which positively impact productivity, talent acquisition and retention, security, and operational agility. Still, many IT teams struggle to effectively quantify and optimize employee experiences. Digital Experience Score offers a 360º view and real time devices, operating systems, networks and applications used by employees in the Everywhere Workplace. Proactively monitor and effectively measure the impact of the overall employee experience by individual, division, and department. As a consequence, and immediately, companies stop using the incident (or ticket) count as the only indicator of the experience of their employees, since the closing of incidents does not reflect on its own the agreement on the level of service ( SLA). It’s more, companies must quantify the effectiveness of digital experiences and IT (XLA), as well as looking for new ways to improve them.
