  • ROI of 261%
  • Net Present Value (NPV) of $1.62 million

Organisations face constantly evolving cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. Protection against these threats has become more challenging with the everywhere workplace, Ivanti states.

Ivanti Neurons for UEM combines unified endpoint management with a comprehensive patch management solution to support organisations zero trust strategies across the entirety of employees' technology experiences.

Ivanti Neurons for UEM platform makes it possible for IT teams to manage devices - from Windows to macOS, iOS to Android and beyond to IoT - so employees can work securely in the everywhere workplace.

It also proactively secures and heals devices with AI-powered automation, from a single pane of glass.

The Forrester study found that while using the Ivanti platform, customers can save costs through: automated onboarding and provisioning, reclaiming unused software licences as a result of better inventorying, increasing security with automated patch management, increasing end-user productivity from automated self-healing, and retiring other endpoint management tools.

Additional unqualified benefits include vendor service/support, powerful imaging capabilities, and better communication between IT operations and security teams.

One customer, a manager for infrastructure and endpoint delivery services in the food production industry, interviewed for the TEIstudy said, “We call Ivanti our ERP of IT. We like to be able to plug in solutions and modules under one vendor rather than have to buy everything as its own siloed solution.

Another customer, a government IT specialist, also interviewed for the TEI study said, “We've tried to use Ivanti automation as much as we can. We really like the fact that it can span multiple departments Having that level of automation has really helped. I don't have to do nearly as many deployments for things. We reduced the level of overhead we had to patch and maintain these devices. It shifted a lot of the opportunity to viewing the analytics that we have on whether we actually did patch all of them.

Nayaki Nayyar, president and chief product officer at Ivanti, says, “UEM is key to enabling hybrid and remote work, which has never been more critical for organisations.

"We are proud of how we have helped all industries deal with the increased demands on IT, amplified need for security, and complexities of today's hybrid and remote work environments to enable people to thrive from anywhere.

"We believe this is a further validation of our vision and strategy of Ivanti Neurons Platform. We will continue to innovate and deliver even more automation and self-healing capabilities to our platform and further help organisations deliver contextual and personalised digital employee experiences.
