    Our Verdict

    Ivanti is good at what it does: making IT management easier. From small businesses to global-scale corporations, this product will keep your workflow smooth. 

    The problem with a unified platform is departments lose their individuality. When there is corruption anywhere, it slows down the entire chain. Another issue is its antivirus capacity. It has problems working around your default AV and doesn’t have strong removal tools.

    In this aspect, this software doesn’t live up to the standards of leading brands like Norton, which provides protection across devices or McAfee and Trend Micro’s scalable protection


    • Patch management
    • Remote control web services
    • Software distribution
    • Malware detection


    • Weak Mac OS support
    • Scheduled tasks inconsistency
    • Bugs leading to application failures
    • Unclear error codes
    • Unspecified most effective routes for tasks
    • Clunky software inventory

    Privacy and Security
