Simplifying your Software Asset Management Journey

Software Asset Management (SAM) involves a complex set of challenges, requiring high levels of support and engagement blending the right mix of people, processes, and tools. In the face of this complexity, in organizations that lack the required sponsorship or dedicated SAM functions, managing software assets can disproportionately fall into the asset management tools themselves.


Now Available: Ivanti Cloud Service Appliance (CSA) 4.6

Ivanti Cloud Service Appliance (CSA) 4.6 is now available for customers to download.

Ivanti Device and Application Control (IDAC) now supports MacOS!

In case you haven't heard the news.... Our beloved Ivanti Device and Application Control (IDAC) is no longer limited to just Microsoft Windows! With the release of IDAC 5.3 earlier this month, we have now expanded the platform support with a brand new MacOS agent. And with all the exciting features already included in the 5.3 release earlier this year (you can read more about the IDAC 5.3 release here) we have increased the functionality even more with the recently released Update 1 for IDAC 5.3.


When it comes to IT asset discovery, a snapshot won't suffice

How clear, complete, and colorful is your IT asset data? Is it like the picture below, where you see only a small portion of the bigger picture to answer important questions about your IT estate? Without color, you’re missing even more context. You need better IT asset discovery. Having a snapshot provides a limited view. It lacks context and is like managing your IT assets in silos. It’s cumbersome, inefficient, and ineffective.
