Security Controls 2020.1 Release
The Security Controls 2020.1 release launches the end of August with enhancements that help reduce the time to patch including Shared Credentials support and the ability to group agents in Machine View. Shared Credentials supports multi-admin environments by unlocking collaboration between admins. The ability to group agents in Machine View includes functionality to create user-defined, static groups for machines that are preserved even if the Last Scanned Group value changes. Other release highlights include ideas from the Ivanti Community such as adding original scan job names into the associated deployment names, and interface improvements like the addition of warning pop-ups in the software distribution flow.
