Ivanti and GDPR
Ivanti offers a range of security solutions to help you meet your multi-layered protection and automate and secure the digital workspace of today. Our solutions in both Service management and Endpoint security help organisations protect PII data and respond and comply to GDPR. The Ivanti Patch Management offerings will help your organisation ensure timely and automated patching of operating systems and applications (including all non-Microsoft applications).
With an increased number of mobile and cloud users, the digital workspace is more vulnerable than ever. To maintain compliance, organisations should augment their traditional security approaches with a people-centric approach to security and access management practices. This approach can help with GDPR compliance by implementing and enforcing data retention policies and not allowing data to be stored in multiple places. Ivanti can also verify the identity of those accessing the data, manage dynamic privileges, apply security controls based on context, protect against malware though whitelisting, and more.
Ivanti allows you to automate any manual processes and ensure data protection policies are enforced, leaving you with an audit-ready compliance plan. Leverage log reports for auditors to report on workspace changes, SLA details, as well as worker access and license usage data. Manage who has access to what data and monitor the actual use of app per worker, per app or per server.
By combining endpoint security with Service management, Ivanti customers can automate and comply with regulations without affecting user experience and get quick time to value in days, not months or years.
How long do you spend patching your OS’s and Apps?
The applications your people use to view documents, images, and email, and access customer data are all vulnerable to multiple exploits. Ivanti makes sure your security policy includes timely patching of applications (including non-Microsoft) and operating systems, with the ability to raise, lower or even eliminate privileges dynamically on a user, application, or task basis – keeping both users & organisation safe and productive.
How can you manage and secure what you don’t know about?
For one manufacturer, knowing the details about what's on its network and automatically removing unused software helped it save $958,000 in licensing fees. For another customer, accurate visibility was crucial for security purposes. When a department VP asked how much it would cost to upgrade all PCs to the latest OS, IT had the answers.
With inventory management capabilities and network discovery tools from Ivanti, you can discover all devices on your network. Track devices in any location across the Internet and all applications on each device. And make sure you can survive that looming software audit.
How are you going to effectively manage PII requests?
Organisations who have a breach relating to PII data have 72 hours to report an incident to a supervisory authority. Responding to an incident is key and challenging as it involves users, infosec, IT ops and the newly created data protection officer. Pulling together processes and data in a timely fashion will also include remediation and detailed analysis of what took place. Service Management solutions will no doubt be at the heart of managing such incidents and response.
In addition to providing endpoint security solutions to protect PII data, Ivanti is uniquely positioned as one of the leading ITSM vendors to help automate and implement the necessary processes and workflow to ensure organisations can respond to PII data requests, deal with incidents and comply with GDPR.
