Ivanti Desktop and Server Management, often referred to as ‘DSM’, is a proven endpoint management solution with a large customer following whose loyalty was put to the test by inconsistent messaging on the solution’s future. But boy o boy, did our DSM customers prove that they’re sticklers. And so, it’s time for us to return the favor and provide our commitment to them. We’re shouting it from the rooftops: Ivanti Desktop and Server Management is here to stay!

As one of the dedicated set of proven and treasured Ivanti solutions, cared for by the purposefully designed independent business unit, Ivanti DSM will receive continuous support and increased attention going forward. Watch our on-demand webinar for more details on what this means to you!
