Ivanti, the provider of the Ivanti Neurons automation platform that discovers, manages, secures and maintains computing resources from the cloud to the edge, today announced three new integrated solutions: Ivanti Neurons™ for Secure Access, Ivanti Neurons ™ for Project Portfolio Management (PPM) and Ivanti Neurons for Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC). With these releases, Ivanti continues to fulfill its mission of enabling and securing the Universal Workplace, empowering employees to use a variety of devices to securely access corporate networks, data, and services when they work from different locations.
Ivanti Neurons is a hyper-automation platform designed to meet the exponentially growing demands of IT services amid rapid growth in devices and data, as well as increasing cyber threats and the shift to remote working. It self-repairs and secures devices and delivers personalized self-service experiences to end users. Ivanti Neurons uses automation bots to deliver real-time insights into all Everywhere Workplace assets, including every device and IoT edge, while delivering a consumer-grade user experience. Ivanti updates Ivanti Neurons quarterly to further help customers quickly and securely embrace the future of work. See below for more details on the latest innovations:
- Ivanti Neurons for Secure Access makes it easier than ever to move to Zero Trust (as part of SASE – Secure Access Service Edge). In short, the Everywhere Workplace demands a Zero Trust security model to effectively combat the unprecedented increase in sophisticated cyberattacks. Zero Trust security enables organizations to create stronger, more impenetrable computing environments by continuously verifying every asset and every transaction before allowing any access. Ivanti Neurons for Secure Access enables enterprises to modernize their virtual private network (VPN) deployments and transform them into Zero Trust network access by leveraging cloud-based management technology that converges secure access to private applications and the Internet. Ivanti Neurons for Secure Access provides a single view of gateways, users, devices, and activities while reducing the risk of breaching stolen identities and internal user actions.
- Ivanti Neurons for GRC enables organizations to automate tracking and compliance by centralizing all authority documents and frameworks, citations, controls, and risks in a single system. This is critical as the shift to remote working has accelerated digital transformation by seven years and increased compliance risks. And according to a recent Gartner report, 39% more CEOs and business leaders identified risk management as one of their top priorities compared to 2019. We believe Ivanti Neurons for GRC addresses these issues by providing real-time visibility into the state of governance such as accurate tracking and compliance with identified risks and ongoing mitigation activities and audits.
- Ivanti Neurons for PPM helps companies optimize business performance and employee productivity by taking the guesswork out of portfolio management and project execution. Too often, projects are late, under-resourced and over budget. In fact, a recent study by the Boston Consulting Group shows that 70% of digital transformation initiatives fall short of their goals. Ivanti Neurons for PPM allows managers to capture and visualize demand and projects in one place and assess their benefits, costs, resources, and risks so they can prioritize the right projects and build a project delivery machine predictable that delivers effective business results. This is essential because successful digital transformations are largely dependent on project execution and delivery.
“These products were specifically designed to help our customers thrive in their workplaces everywhere,” said Nayaki Nayyar, President and Chief Product Officer, Ivanti. “Ivanti Neurons for Secure Access enables customers to modernize their traditional VPN deployments and transform them into Zero Trust architectures to reduce the risk of a breach. Ivanti Neurons for PPM helps clients drive digital transformation projects, which have accelerated over the past year but are often underperforming. And Ivanti Neurons for GRC helps customers automate compliance and risk assessment processes, which have become more complicated due to remote working.
