Not too long ago, the desktop computer was the primary computing device for enterprise employees. With the rise of mobile endpoints like smartphones, laptops and tablets, employees are connecting to corporate networks from a wide variety of places and devices. Today, especially with the popularity of the WFH (work from home) model, managing the multitude of mobile devices is more complicated than ever before. The statistics tell a sobering tale.
I am a challenger. It’s in my DNA somewhere I am sure. To find limits. Evaluate them. Develop an attack angle. Push beyond. Repeat. This is largely due to my hobby of cycling, which I had no idea would further develop my challenger habits when I took it up a handful of years ago. In cycling, it’s easy to find targets for goals. Sprint to the next intersection. Ride up a climb. Complete a 100-mile century. For me, it came in the form of a particular one-day cycling race covering 205 miles.
It’s September. Summer in the northern hemisphere is coming to an end. Going outside of your home is still somewhat unusual. And the year has been chaotic with politics, the pandemic, and civil activism. Our emotions are running high—we should probably stop right there in describing 2020. However, as with many things, rarely will you find a full understanding on the surface of a situation.

Very few things available online are truly free of cost. If you don’t pay with cash, chances are you are paying with your personal information or other data. The Chrome web store is filled with free extensions that users install on their browsers to enhance their online experience. However, more and more of these extensions are being discovered and removed from the store due to their malicious intent.
The trend of working from home has hit the ground running, and businesses have turned to strategies and tools that will ensure a no-plummet productive environment. There are two major forks in the road when it comes to provisioning remote endpoints—users can use their own devices, or the company can hand over corporate-owned devices.
As part of the re-affirmed commitment to customers as announced on January 30, Ivanti launched an Independent Business Unit (IBU) consisting of proven solutions with a large customer following (dare I say, fans?) that deserve some TLC. One of these solutions is Ivanti Endpoint Security (IES), previously referred to as Endpoint Management & Security Suite (EMSS) and also as Patch for Linux, Unix and Mac. So, what’s new with Ivanti Endpoint Security?
