Salt Lake City-based Ivanti, which automates IT and security operations to manage and secure data from cloud to edge, and processor-making market leader Intel have announced a new strategic partnership to offer Device-as-a-Service (DaaS) with self-healing capabilities for the next-generation workforce.
DaaS helps enterprises save capital costs by taking a typical hardware device, such as a laptop, desktop, tablet, or mobile phone, bundling it with a variety of services and software, and offering it to a customer for a monthly subscription fee.
As a result of the new alliance announced last week, Intel Endpoint Management Assistant (Intel EMA) now integrates with the Ivanti Neurons hyper-automation platform, which enables IT organizations to self-heal and self-secure with Intel vPro platform-based devices–both inside and outside a corporate firewall.
“As remote becomes the next normal, auto-healing, securing and servicing endpoints and edge devices becomes a key priority for organizations,” Nayaki Nayyar, Ivanti executive vice president and chief product officer, said in a media advisory. “With Ivanti Neurons, organizations supporting Intel vPro platform-powered devices can gain a 360-degree view of users, devices, and applications and auto-remediate performance, security, configuration issues.”
With the integration of Intel Endpoint Management Assistant, Neurons provides next-generation remote management for on-premises and cloud-based endpoints. Ivanti Neurons can handle remote actions on Intel vPro platform-based devices, such as powering on a device, restarting a device, setting wake-up times and controlling a system–even during OS failure–and repairing devices at scale.
This also takes into account security patching and other actions.
