Ivanti Wavelink, the supply chain business unit of Ivanti, today announced the integration of Ivanti Neurons for MDM, a cloud-based modern device management solution that can secure and manage any device, any OS, anywhere across your supply chain operation throughout its lifecycle. With this launch Ivanti Neurons for MDM now manages rugged mobile devices.
Recommended and integrated with Android Enterprise, Zebra LifeGuard, and StageNow, Ivanti Neurons for MDM detects, manages, and secures traditional, smart, and rugged devices in a single platform with automation AI that helps maximize technology and user uptime.
“Ivanti Neurons for MDM gives you visibility to know that your devices are updated and in operating condition, so your task workers are productive all shift long,” said Brandon Black, vice president and general manager, Ivanti Wavelink. “Additionally, software — including apps running on our Velocity platform — is easily deployed, updated, and configured, which helps reduce support tickets and technology failure-based downtime.”
Unlike alternative mobile device management solutions that support a limited set of device types and require “swivel-chair” management across multiple platforms to manage different endpoints, Ivanti Neurons for MDM consolidates all endpoint management into a single platform, making asset tracking, managing, and securing all devices across an organization easier with visibility and control from a single unified console. This includes traditional laptops, smart devices, rugged mobile computers, wearables, rugged smartphones and tablets.
Supply chain operations have no time for downtime. Ivanti Neurons for MDM supports simplified device staging and management of applications that power worker productivity. It also reduces risk through device firmware, operating system and application updates that aid vulnerability patching and reduce software-driven support requests. Organizations also have the option to add protection against known and unknown (zero-day) threats with Ivanti Mobile Threat Defense as part of the Ivanti Neurons platform. Additionally, Ivanti Neurons for MDM builds on the strength of Ivanti Neurons for UEM and enables a smooth upgrade from Avalanche or any other MDM solution.
“Supply chain security has become a target for threat actors, and manufacturers need to prepare against breaches. A lack of visibility of device and software update data can leave companies open to ransomware attacks,” Black said. “Ivanti Neurons for MDM helps reduce risks by managing updates across firmware, operating systems, and apps, and ensuring that devices are running at peak performance, giving workers the best opportunity to deliver for the business.”
