Tech Services would like to announce a new endpoint management software for computers on campus. The software, Ivanti is an industry-leading suite of management and security tools. This product will replace KACE on all Windows-based devices. This software will install an agent on computers and scan devices for configuration, asset management and software updates. Ivanti will allow Information Technology to update Windows, Office and many other third party applications - thereby making the computing environment more secure and stable.
How does this affect me?
What else does this software do?
Additionally, Ivanti allows IT to more consistently and pro-grammatically release software to campus. We are also happy to announce the IT Trailblazers Program which will help IT improve quality control prior to general campus release. If you would like to be involved or learn more please visit our IT Trailblazers website.
It is possible that users will see Ivanti-related process taking up CPU and Memory. IT has done significant testing and configuration in hopes to minimize the impact of this software. What is it doing? Good question. The software scans devices for available Windows Updates, Office Updates and other security-related updates that are needed. This process can take up to an hour but generally take less than thirty minutes.
