    I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information or devices that contain proprietary information, critical business information or other information that needs to be securely protected. It can also be used to track a device (individual) as well if that is your goal. We use it as an extra precaution to track our mental health clinicians that do home visits. It allows us to keep track of their whereabouts, in case an issue arises at a client's home. We are able to send someone out to check or assist, alert emergency services or send law enforcement if a situation should arise.

    Ivanti IT Asset Management Suite

    Ivanti ITAM suite is very robust and offers all the features you need in an ITAM solution. Out of the box, you get all you need, but you are able to customize and add processes that are missing very easily. It will work for any organization, regardless of complexity. We have the full suite of Ivanti products and there are nice integration options that make usage very seamless.

    Pros

    Absolute

    • I tracked a stolen computer all the way to Africa from USA and disabled it.
    • I set up geofences with alerts. As soon as a computer got a wifi connection outside of our fences it would email me its current location.
    • Absolute's persistent technology was helpful. -Even when a pawn shop would attempt to "wipe" a device before getting it online, as soon as it got online it notified me of the OS re-installation and current location. We could call authorities and they could recover the device for us. And they were happy it made their job easier and deterred the pawn shop from reselling stolen devices.

    Cons

    Absolute

    • I do not know where I would consider this product to be deficient in functionality, difficult to use or any major changes that needed to be addressed.
    • I wish the pricing of this product was a little lower, but I do think it is well worth the cost and consideration, especially if you are using it on devices containing electronic medical records, personal health information or personal privacy information.

    • Licensing can be complex and is fairly expensive. I did not research other ITAM solutions as we use the entire Ivanti suite to see how pricing compares, but it does seem expensive.
    • Be careful when you are building you CMDB module in the Ivanti Service Desk tool, we found the hard way that create custom CI processes requires an ITAM license.
    • We have submitted a few bugs and the resolution from support seems slow. I find this is common with many vendors, but was hoping for better resolution times with Ivanti.

    I have only used Absolute Data and Device Security (DDS). It was recommended by my Dell sales rep. After reviewing the product info, and loading a demo, it became clear that this is what was needed to add to our existing security to protect us from information loss due to a data breach on our portable devices. I presented this solution to the appropriate departments, and they agreed that this was something well worth the investment.

    This is the only software suite in its category I have any real professional experience with, so I cannot speak to how it stands up to the competition

    Return on Investment

    Absolute

    • Recovery of stolen assets.
    • After recovering a few devices and students becoming aware of Absolute being deployed, it had a prevention effect deterring additional theft.
    • It deterred pawn shops from accepting our stolen machines.

    Ivanti IT Asset Management Suite

    • We have seen tremendous ROI with custom processes set up to manage the lifecycle of our assets. This was a huge void for us previously and now we can see when assets are coming/going and when they should be retired.
    • Integration with other apps via API has allowed us to automate manual tasks and streamline processes.
    • Tie-ins with the CMDB function of Service Desk have allowed us to create dynamic workflows to manage the lifecycle of assets and other related assets. Very powerful use case.
