Overall Satisfaction with Ivanti Endpoint Manager (formerly LANDESK Management Suite)

Ivanti Endpoint Manager is currently used by all IT personnel for asset management and monitoring, remote capabilities, machine hardware, software, and environment inventory, software distribution, bare-bones imaging (provisioning of the operating system), and policy-supported pushing of scripted actions. Every managed node had the Ivanti agent installed, and it is used globally across all IT business units.
  • Software distribution - the ability to sit and provide software when a machine calls home works phenomenally well. You may also target based on certain conditions, ranging from LDAP queries down to hardware revisions of individual components.
  • Operating system provisioning - the range of choice in sequential execution is second to none. We migrated from MDT to Ivanti's providing with relative ease.
  • Patching and compliance - you're able to get extremely granular, and the rollout project templates make rolling it a particular patch from QA to Production an automated breeze
  • Modification - one of the best things about MDT was the ability to edit the source files to fit your particular needs
  • Agent corruption - with this many moving parts, we find we are having to reinstall the agent far too often, at about 0.3% of all failures. With over 10,000 nodes at over 200 facilities, this can get cumbersome
  • The DMZ - Ivanti's Cloud Services Appliance, placed in the DMZ for remote communications, is finicky at best.
  • Unknown - this is above my pay grade
SCCM integrates really well within Windows, but IEM does exceptionally well with the Big 3 (Windows, MacOS, Linux). Anything you can do in one, you can do in the other.
It is well suited for compliance and information gathering/reports. You can query about literally anything in any given machine's environment. It is definitely well sure for very large corporations.
