Overall Satisfaction with Ivanti Security Controls

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.
  • Fast patching of all clients (also portables).
  • Negative is the time you need to understand the application control functionality. But if you did understand this is a positive effect of long correct functionality without adjustments on the config.
Since we have been using Application Control for about 15 years, it is, of course, the best solution for us. We also looked at other products (RES One Workspace), but they didn't convince us. Some features of RES were good and are now part of the User Workspace Manager. The Microsoft solution seems too complicated to us and does not have the advantages of Trusted Ownership Checking.
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.
