We are excited to announce that Ivanti Neurons for MDM now fully supports all Windows Autopilot modes. This includes Autopilot pre-provisioned and self-deploying mode, in addition to the previously supported user driven mode.  In particular, this self-deploying mode works seamlessly to automatedly enroll and configure HoloLens2 and Windows PC devices.  

Why does this matter? 

Because mixed reality devices are still new to IT professionals, many assume a completely new security and management framework is needed to support them.  But while devices like HoloLens 2 may appear different than a tablet, Ivanti adopts the exact same security and management framework for HoloLens 2 as we have for other Windows devices. Ivanti is the only UEM vendor (besides Microsoft) that supports HoloLens 2 with Autopilot self-deploying mode.   

Why you need Autopilot to manage and secure HoloLens2

In recent years, many industries have deployed HoloLens2 and mixed reality technology, and we expect that trend to continue. There are, as we’ll touch on below, numerous potential use cases.  However, if you’re considering adoption, it’s important to note that the cost of the device and associated software is significant for any size organization, and deployment can easily overload IT.   

Given the large investment, then, it is critical to invest in a solution to properly manage and secure these devices. Windows Autopilot enables deployment for organizations of any size, which reduces device management overhead cost, time of manual device preparation and interaction with employees during the setup process., And because Ivanti is the only UEM vendor (besides Microsoft) that supports HoloLens 2 with Autopilot self-deploying mode, Ivanti Neurons for MDM can provide end-to-end lifecycle management of HoloLens 2 for customers in any industry. 

Understanding what’s possible with Ivanti and HoloLens

From manufacturing to healthcare and education, there are many ways to leverage HoloLens2 and mixed reality technology in the Everywhere Workplace.  


Since the pandemic, many workers have faced travel restrictions and their employers have had to find alternatives to train employees or run business operations remotely.  There are an increasing number of companies that have adopted and implemented HoloLens 2 in the field so workers can solve issues and complete tasks faster.  In one manufacturing site, HoloLens is being used to deliver real-time instructions and on-the-job guidance to reduce errors and improve productivity.  


It is not uncommon to see HoloLens 2 used to help surgeons in operating rooms improve surgery accuracy.  Because augmented reality accelerates telehealth solutions and enables imaging results/knowledge sharing between physician and patients, we can expect higher quality of care and patient satisfaction/outcomes.  


Educators can deliver interactive learning experiences to students by enabling them to visualize learning in 3D and better collaborate with each other.  In one trial, a student in the HoloLens lab scored 50% better compared to the rest of the medical school class. 

At Ivanti, we are excited to see all the capabilities and potential of the device in helping our customers achieve their goals.  And remember:  Ivanti Neurons for MDM can help deploy any size of deployment small and large – and simplify the onboarding process.
