Ivanti and Intel have formed a new strategic partnership which will see the companies offer new device-as-a-service (DaaS) software with self-healing capabilities.

IT organisations and other customers will have the ability to self-secure platform-based devices inside and outside the corporate firewall as a result of an integration between key software from both companies.

Invanti's Neurons hyper-automation platform, announced just this week, and Intel's Endpoint Management Assistant will integrate to obtain a clearer view of users, devices and applications and auto-remediate performance and configuration issues.

“Together, Ivanti and Intel are delivering unparalleled endpoint management for devices using the Intel vPro platform for on-premises and cloud-based endpoint remote management – integrated with hyper-automation bots on the Ivanti Neurons Platform,” says Ivanti executive vice president and chief product officer Nayaki Nayyar.

“As remote becomes the next normal, auto-healing, securing and servicing endpoints and edge devices becomes a key priority for organisations.

The integration between both companies' software will provide customers with better remote management for on-premise and cloud-based endpoints.

By virtue of its hyper-automation capabilities, Ivanti Neurons can remotely perform critical actions on Intel vPro platform-based devices. This can include restarting devices, setting wakeup times, controlling systems during OS failure and repairing devices at scale.

“By partnering with Ivanti, Intel continues to expand our industry-leading technologies that support our joint customers to manage a remote workforce and edge devices,” says Intel vice president of the Client Computing Group and general manager of business client platforms Stephanie Hallford.

“Using the Intel vPro platform will provide in-band and out of band endpoint management via the cloud. The Ivanti DaaS solution, along with the built for business Intel vPro platform is perfect for driving customer value for the next generation workforce.

“Together we are providing unparalleled technologies, performance and enhanced security for DaaS.

Ivanti's partnership with Intel comes only a week after the company announced a separate partnership with Manhattan Associates, with the aim of bringing greater voice-enablement solutions to warehousing operations in South-East Asia.

Using Ivanti Speakeasy, customers in warehousing, transport and logistics, and retail who leverage Manhattan Associates' Warehouse Management System (WMS), now have access to voice-enablement with WMS integration.

Designed to allow for greater modernisation within warehousing and supply chain environments, Ivanti Speakeasy enables businesses to add voice to any application.

"We are proud to be on board with Manhattan Associates and support their customers in deploying our voice-enablement solutions for warehousing, supply chain and logistics firms in the SEA region,” says Ivanti Wavelink area vice president APAC Simon Storey.

"With Ivanti Speakeasy, we are providing our mutual customers with the best voice-enabled solution for enhancing workers' productivity, while at the same time improving accuracy and safety within the supply chain."
