Agent Policy now provides the ability to configure bandwidth utilization to allow organizations to manage Wide Area Network (WAN) and Local Area Network (LAN) bandwidth usage when downloading or distributing Ivanti Neurons agents and capabilities, so as not to exhaust network resources.
Organizations can throttle WAN bandwidth using intuitive percentage controls, for example, when distributing agents to a specific set of endpoints. For example, set to 75% so the process can’t utilize any more than 75% of available WAN bandwidth.
This also works in conjunction with previously released peer-to-peer download support to ensure LAN utilization can also be throttled.
This ability to configure bandwidth utilization is ideal for metered or low bandwidth connections or satellite offices located in remote locations with poor connectivity.

In Ivanti Neurons 2022.3 release, Agent Policy Peer-to-Peer Downloads for Windows devices was introduced. In this release, the same capabilities for macOS devices has been introduced. Allowing devices on a network to share agent, engine and configuration installations between one another.
Client-server networks tend to perform less effectively when many devices are requesting services. A peer-to-peer network is far more efficient in this scenario, as the file transfer load is shared between all the participating devices on the network.
Also, as a client-server network has the potential to fail if the server malfunctions or the WAN connection is lost, a peer-to-peer network will remain functional allowing agent and policy distribution to continue uninterrupted.
So, this will provide more efficient options to our customers for agent distribution on macOS devices.

Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management
Quickly identify the patches related to a list of CVEs with the ability to upload a list of CVEs from a text file. When a list of CVEs is uploaded in Patch Intelligence, the CVEs are extracted to determine which patches are related to each CVE and then those patches are displayed for your review. Select which patches to add to a patch group and then use that patch group in your patch deployments to quickly remediate vulnerabilities by CVE.
CVE Upload in Patch Intelligence allows patch administrators to quickly identify patches associated with a list of CVEs provided by the Security team, vulnerability solution or any other source of threat insight to help reduce the time to patch against these vulnerabilities.
