Earlier this week, we closed the acquisitions of MobileIron, a leading provider of mobile-centric unified endpoint management solutions, and Pulse Secure LLC, a leading provider of Zero Trust Secure Access and mobile security solutions.

I’m personally super excited to join forces with MobileIron and Pulse Secure and combine our strengths to deliver unparalleled coverage across all device types in the Everywhere Enterprise. With this announcement, Ivanti is now the only vendor in the market to deliver an end-to-end solution across Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Zero Trust Security, and IT Service Management (ITSM).

So, what does this mean for customers? First, let’s look at what’s happening in the market and the challenges that enterprises are facing. The world is changing fast. And the demands on IT are growing exponentially as employees are increasingly working from anywhere, on any device and expecting contextualized, personalized, consumer-like experiences.

This remote work environment is driving an explosive growth of endpoints, edge devices, and data. ​According to Gartner, approximately 75% of enterprise-generated data will be created and processed at the edge by 2025. This is significant if you consider that it was less than 10% in 2018. At the same time, cybersecurity threats are reaching catastrophic new heights and reports are showing up to a 30,000% increase in COVID-19 themed attacks, such as phishing, malicious websites and malware targeted at remote workers, since January.

Enterprises urgently need to deal with this explosive growth in devices, data, cybersecurity threats and remote workers. In this next normal, applying hyper-automation technologies like deep learning, supervised and unsupervised learning capabilities, is the only way for enterprises to ensure that all endpoints, edge devices and data are discovered, managed, secured and serviced. With hyper-automation, enterprises can proactively and predictably detect issues, self-heal and self-secure devices. This, in turn, results in a seamless, secure and personalized user experience.

Now that we have closed the acquisitions of MobileIron and Pulse Secure, we will apply Hyper-Automation across our converged pillars of UEM, Zero Trust Security, and ITSM to completely transform enterprise operations. For our customers, this provides a single pane of glass to discover and manage all devices, provide Zero Trust access from Cloud to Edge, and deliver consumer grade employee experience. We’ll also expand our strengths into industry verticals to manage rugged devices for supply chain customers, retail kiosks for retailers, and healthcare devices for healthcare organizations.  

In conclusion, I’m very excited for our customers as we deliver integrations across Ivanti Neurons, MobileIron and Pulse Secure technologies. Stay tuned for more innovations as we accelerate on our vision of Self-Healing Autonomous Edge!
