Ivanti Neurons for Discovery
Target specific areas of an organizational network in which to find devices, using just a single agent, across different subnets. This helps in the situation where an IT administrator does not want to install a Deployment Representative on every subnet, or, if there are subnets without any Windows devices, where it is not physically possible to install the Deployment Representative.
Network Targeting enables IT Admins to manually create IP address ranges or import an existing list of known ranges from a file, to minimize administrative overhead. Active, Remote Inventory and SNMP scans can be started, stopped, or automatically scheduled, for each individual network segment. Active scans now utilize ICMP to enable device discovery across subnets, all from a single Deployment Representative, to alleviate load on the network and reduce ongoing maintenance.

Previously, multiple Policy Groups were processed sequentially, which could result in impeded deployments of agent and capabilities to endpoints if the processing of an earlier Policy Group became stalled. In addition, devices not showing a state of ‘complete’ could not be removed from those Policy Groups, causing further obstruction.
With Concurrent Deployment, Policy Groups are now processed simultaneously to ensure rapid and accurate deployment of agent and capabilities to endpoints. Devices can also now be removed from Policy Groups irrespective of their state.
Settings for both active and passive discovery have been updated to give a much cleaner experience and delineate between the two different types of discovery methods. Previously, the use of pop-out panels for Discovery Settings restricted space. In addition, the user workflow could be interrupted if the user needed to add credentials as part of the configuration.
The UI has been re-worked to include full-screen configuration, future proofing the solution for additional discovery options. In addition, in-line creation of Credentials is now possible, allowing the user workflow to remain uninterrupted.

Connect to Google Chrome Enterprise to increase visibility of your Google Chrome OS environment and provide a centralized management console to make your frontline analysts even more efficient.
The Google Chrome OS connector can both import all your Google Chrome OS devices into Neurons for complete visibility with your other IT devices and enables analysts to manage these Google Chrome OS devices without having to log into Google Chrome Enterprise. Actions like rebooting, moving the machine to another OU, or wiping the device, are all supported.
Connect to Qualys to increase visibility into device vulnerabilities across your environment and start the process of vulnerability lifecycle management to ensure your environment is fully secure.
Qualys provides in-depth device vulnerability results that help illuminate gaps in your security attack vector. Once these vulnerabilities have been uncovered, you can leverage Ivanti Security Controls or Ivanti Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager to address those vulnerabilities.
Connect to Ivanti Endpoint Security to increase visibility into installed and missing patches per device. Leverage the insights of Ivanti Neurons for Patch Intelligence to prioritize vulnerabilities based on active risk exposure, reliability and compliance to achieve faster SLAs and improve operational efficiencies.
Ivanti Neurons for Edge Intelligence
You can now create an alert on application errors. This alert allows you to automatically monitor application crashes that occur on client devices.
A new sensor has been introduced that allows you to view Edge browser extensions that are installed on your client devices.
A new sensor has been introduced that allows you to view Firefox browser extensions that are installed on your client devices.
Ivanti Neurons for Healing
We have expanded our self-heal toolbox of actions with new delete file and folder stages to allow straightforward removal of content from Mac or Windows endpoints.
We have enhanced the Filter result stage to allow the filtering of both passed-through properties of Edge Intelligence backed queries, as well as custom queries via a new ‘custom property’ entry in the properties list.
We have enhanced our Teams Beta stage to allow messages to be sent to a preset recipient, or to be sent to the initiator of a custom action from the device view.
Machine Learning Lab is the new centralized location to train and deploy machine learning models. Take advantage of the advancement in Machine Learning without the data science expertise. We have selected, implemented the machine learning algorithm, you simply provide the data to train the model.
The first model available in this release is Ticket Classification. Once a model is trained and deployed, Ivanti Neurons for ITSM can automatically categorize your incidents.
Machine Learning Lab features:
- Create and train new models by uploading training data and optional stop words
- Evaluate model accuracy
- Deploy trained model
- View a list of models you have trained or deployed
Ivanti Neurons for Patch Intelligence
Addition of macOS patches in the All Patches and My Environment tabs of Ivanti Neurons for Patch Intelligence. In addition to adding the macOS patches, the user interface was updated to reflect support for multiple platforms. These updates include the addition of a Platform column to the All Patches and My Environment grids that can be used to filter by Windows and macOS. To learn more, see Patch summary.
You can now use the macOS insights in Ivanti Neurons for Patch Intelligence to protect your organization from security threats, and evolving risks, by reducing time to patch and prioritizing the most critical patches for deployment.
Ivanti Neurons Platform
Enhancement to the workflow for renewing expired client secrets when using Microsoft Azure SSO. It is now possible to reset the client secret without needing to re-apply the whole configuration. To learn more, see Update Client Secret.
As part of our continuous endeavor to maximize security of Ivanti Neurons we have enhanced our anti-automation attack controls. This is subject to a phased roll-out and may result in users needing to perform Captcha based anti-bot verification upon Ivanti Neurons login.
Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence
Typically, most of your contract data will be imported into Ivanti Neurons for Spend Intelligence from spreadsheets. However, from this release, you can also create, update, and delete contracts manually from the Contracts dashboard in the License Manager component. To learn more, see Contracts.
The existing feature that enables you to create, update, and delete transactions manually has also been enhanced by providing a list of matching vendors to choose from when you start typing in the Vendors field. This helps you to enter consistent vendor names that match vendors in the Ivanti SKU Library.
Ivanti Neurons Workspace
Scopes define the devices and users Ivanti Neurons members can see and manage. Once an Ivanti Neurons administrator assigns a scope to a member, that member will only see the devices and users the scope allows.
