Ivanti Workspace Control



Controlling User Access while Delivering a Personalized Experience IT organizations must balance control of applications, services, and assets with enabling personalized user access. What apps and services do workers need? What printers should they have access to? What resources should be blocked if they’re on an unsecure public network? IT teams typically handle these issues manually, often relying on scripts that must be managed and maintained, overloading the team and preventing them from working on more strategic projects. The results are often:
  • Delays in providing workers access to the digital resources they need
  • Inadequate definition and enforcement of access policies—especially restriction of privileges when users work from non-secure devices or locations
  • Valuable IT staff time consumed by routine administration
These problems impact the business in the form of lost productivity, security risks, poor compliance, user frustration, high IT expenses, and compromised user productivity. Ivanti® Workspace Control, powered by RES, allows IT to centrally manage and control the user workspace across physical, virtual, and hybrid environments. Workspace Control drives user productivity by providing workers with a familiar and seamless experience that adjusts to changes in their work context.

Key Feature: Easy Workspace Personalization Workspace Control lets IT create a highly personalized user workspace for workers based on what they need to do their jobs—and what they can access based on IT and corporate policy.

Key Feature: Context Awareness Allows IT to apply the appropriate policies to each user’s desktop session, whether that session is delivered via VDI, app virtualization, or conventional thick-client architecture.
Context rules detect aspects of the user’s current state related to access policies (like location, network connection type, device type, time of day, etc.) and controls access accordingly.

Key Feature: Web-based Management Workspace Control provides IT with an easy-to-use, webbased interface for managing user and application security settings and allowing the IT helpdesk to troubleshoot the desktop configuration. Key Feature: File Certificate-based Application Whitelisting File certificates allow IT to create rules to whitelist applications from a specific vendor or product name using the certificates of signed executables—providing the same level of security as file hashes, but with fewer rules and a lot less maintenance.

Key Feature: Application Whitelist Monitor Simplifies security whitelisting across a large, dynamic application set by automating the generation and maintenance of hashes and file certificates.

Transform Digital Workspaces Ivanti Workspace Control is an ideal complement to VDI, mobility, and other digital workplace transformation strategies, since it provides an automated, policy-based way of mapping individual users to their digital workspaces across devices and delivery platforms. Users can roam seamlessly across hybrid environments for full productivity. And, because Workspace Control decouples the desktop experience from underlying infrastructure, IT upgrade projects are easier to execute and less disruptive to users.

Deliver a Consistent User Experience Workspace Control helps IT provide a consistent user experience across desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones—while still applying the appropriate resource limitations as workers move from office to home to the road.

Regulatory and Corporate Compliance Whether it’s meeting software licensing agreements or adhering to regulatory restrictions, Workspace Control allows IT to set, enforce, and report on granular policy rules at the user level. IT gains control over user behavior while still providing the necessary access to resources to keep users productive, plus the ability to document and demonstrate compliance.

Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop Support Workspace Control is compatible with Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR.

Updated macOS and Linux Support The macOS and Linux agents have been updated to support the latest releases of macOS, CentOS, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Ivanti Workspace Control reduces the complexity of managing the user workspace to deliver:
  • A more productive and engaged workforce
  • Improved corporate and regulatory compliance
  • Lower cost of IT operations
  • Better allocation of IT staff and skills
  • Greater organizational agility
  • Simplified infrastructure upgrades
