We use Security Controls for all of our Server and Workstation/laptop security updates (ie. Windows monthly updates, 3rd party security updates). I used this product before the name was changed to Security Controls. I used to deploy applications as well. It has come in extra valuable now with Covid-19 as we can deploy patches to any remote computer that has internet access. Before they had to connect to the VPN to get the updates.
  • Patched deployment
  • Hardware and software Inventory
  • Reporting before and after patch deployment of successful/failures updates
  • One dashboard for all important information that relates to software security status.
  • Deploying full installs of Windows 10 across the internet or even custom software installs. They can only be done why the endpoint is onsite, no remote deployments.
  • Improved user setup/permissions when more that one IT person uses Security controls. It's a bit confusing during the initial setup. I know that started making it easier in recent updates but it still need work.
  • When using agents have them group the same way you see agentless endpoints. Agentless endpoints are group but agent endpoints aren't.
[Ivanti Security Controls] is a lot easier to use over Microsoft SCCM if you just want an application for patch deployment. Easy to setup, great support. You can get the base install and testing completed within hours vs SCCM that takes weeks to understand. It has a lot of 3rd party applications support for patching built right in. You don't need another add-on for this functionality. If you want to deploy large applications or have a huge number of endpoints with agents. The grouping configuration needs to be changed to match the same type of setup that agentless uses. This would make the product 10 times better. A few more base reports would be great vs making a custom. SCCM has them a lot more pre-configured reports out of the box.

We use Isec (Ivanti Security Controls) for our monthly security patching of all servers in the environment (on-prem). This allows us to keep our servers up to date with the monthly release cycles from Microsoft and other vendors. It's also used for ad-hoc patching as needed for zero-day threats as well as keeping our template builds up to date.
  • Patching large numbers of servers.
  • Keeping audits of patching process.
  • Flexible configuration options with regards to selecting machine groups.
  • Performance of the console when using agentless machines.
  • The console layout is a bit cumbersome - would be better if all functions were accessible from one screen.
  • Common deployment examples to assist with deployment types.
Great for deploying patches to large groups of machines.

We went through an evaluation of patch management tools, and Ivanti was the tool we choose to go with. Ivanti offers a wide range of security tools that it has purchased over the years. Ivanti Security Controls is a great tool that offers both agent and agentless patching. We opted not to go for the whole security suite that they offer because we were only interested in the patch management tool. Our environment consists mainly of Windows and a few Linux servers. We also have a decent sized workstation pool that can all be patched and managed under a single patching software.
  • Live status update on patch deployments with an agent and also agentless deployments.
  • A large 3rd party patching inventory.
  • Easy to navigate and troubleshoot.
  • The email functions of reports could be better.
  • Combining the functions of the patching using agentless servers and workstations to allow for a seamless environment.
  • Lowers cost
Agentless patching is the best of all the products I've used. The real-time updates that don't require re-scanning after each step is great.
Support wasn't used as the cost didn't justify the expense. We have yet to use the support.

We implement Security Controls for companies looking for a patch/security solution. We also implement Security Controls for companies that have used Application Control as a standalone solution (we have many years of experience in this area) and are looking for a patch solution. With our customers, Security Controls is mainly used because of the increased security through Application Control. The implementation is very simple and the Config can be set up quickly to implement Trusted Ownership checking. Customers usually first use the product in a VDI / terminal server environment and then extend it to mobile clients and fat clients. The greatest benefit is the efficient security against unknown malicious code and the low maintenance effort during operation.
  • Trusted ownership checking is a good way to implement effective basic protection.
  • Patching is important today to react quickly to security problems. With Security Controls, it's easier than ever before.
  • One console for whole security.
  • Better search in the application control configuration
  • User rights management for modern user interface settings dialog.
  • For patching, a more intuitive console. Some features are hidden or not easy to find for users who are accessing the console for the first time.
Security Controls is particularly suitable for customers who are looking for a patch solution and need security to protect themselves from unknown malicious code. For customers who are already using the Workspace Manager Suite, we don't think the solution is that suitable. A patch for Windows would be sufficient.
