Ivanti Neurons for Discovery
Agent Policy now supports Patch Management as a new Action to be deployed to selected endpoint devices. Through Agent Policy you can also associate a Patch Management configuration to be installed to the devices within the Agent Policy Group.
Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management provides zero trust security capabilities and brings a continuous vulnerability management experience to help organizations manage vulnerabilities from detection through to remediation.
Associating a Patch Management configuration to an Agent Policy Group can also be performed directly from within Ivanti Neurons > Patch Management > Patch Settings, so that configuring and deploying patch management can all be performed using a single user workflow. This is achieved via the Associations tab within the Patch Management settings.

A specific Deployment Representative can now be assigned as the Elected Scanner, to perform discovery scans on each configured IP Range. This ensures discovery will find all subnet devices for organizations that have separate sites or segregated networks. Furthermore, subnet configured scanners will ensure active scans return the MAC address, and NetBIOS name, of the discovered devices, without the need for additional remote inventory or SNMP Scans.
Performing a remote inventory, or SNMP scan, alongside the active scan will return MAC address and NetBIOS information.

Ivanti Neurons for Edge Intelligence
For the table view of a query, you can now change the number of results shown per page.
Internet latency is now introduced as a new standalone sensor that queries the internet latency across all you devices.
The event log details query can be accessed via the Count column that is present on the Event Log Summery query. The UI when configuring parameter on the event log details has been improved so that all records are available in the Windows Event Viewer.
Ivanti Neurons for Healing
Improvements to the Server State stage; you can now identify devices where the service is not found by using the Category column. In order to take advantage of this in existing Neurons workflows that are using this stage, you need to delete and re-add the stage from the Neurons workflow.
New supersedence logic has been introduced so that when breaking updates are made to stages, we will honor the previous version of the stage in the existing workflows, but the ability to save the Neuron workflow will be blocked until the existing stage is deleted and re-added from the library.
Ivanti Endpoint Manager is no longer a pre-requisite for this smart advisor. The Ivanti Neurons agent will now also populate the Device Stability Smart Advisor.
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 and implemented the machine learning algorithm, you simply provide the data to train the models.
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.
- Create and train new models by uploading training data and optional stop words.
- Evaluate model accuracy.
- Deploy trained models.
- View a list of models you have trained or deployed.

Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management
Ivanti Neurons for Patch Management is a cloud patching solution. It combines the asset information and device risk insights of Ivanti Neurons with risk-based prioritization and comprehensive patch management capabilities to drive an adaptive security strategy. The cloud patching solution is available for your Windows-based machines and includes the ability to patch products from both Microsoft and third-party vendors. The key patch management features include:
- The ability to assess the risk posture of the devices in your environment using the Endpoint Vulnerability component.
- The ability to gather and aggregate data in order to manage, prioritize, and streamline your patching environment using the Patch Intelligence component.
- The ability to drill into your recent deployment operations to identify trends, zero in on exceptions and quickly troubleshoot any issues using the Deployment History component.
- A multi-function Ivanti Neurons agent that safeguards your devices. Upon installation, the agent will perform a patch scan of each device and report the results to the Ivanti Neurons Platform, providing immediate visibility into the risk posture of each device.
- The ability to create one or more custom patch configurations that define how patches will be deployed by your agent machines.
If you are a new customer, you can immediately begin using the cloud workflow. If you are an existing customer using an Ivanti on-premise patching solution, you can begin your journey to the cloud using a hybrid approach. You simply configure a connector that will import your on-premise data into the Ivanti Neurons Platform. This enables you to view, monitor and manage both your cloud and on-premise machines from a single web interface. You can transition the management of your devices from the on-premise patch management console to the cloud at your own speed.
Patch Intelligence has moved from Ivanti Neurons Platform > Software menu, to the new Patch Management menu.
Available menu options are license dependent. Customers that have purchased Patch Intelligence will only see Patch Management > Patch Intelligence. Customers that have purchased Patch Management will see Patch Management > Endpoint Vulnerability, Patch Intelligence, Deployment History and Patch Settings.
New Management column in the Patch Detail > Unpatched Devices tab provides the name of the agent managing the device, which will either be; a supported Connector, or Ivanti Neurons. If a device is managed by multiple Connectors, it will display the most recent patch status. Having multiple Connectors reporting on a device can provide conflicting information due to differing schedules, deployment results, and assessment results. We recommend managing endpoint devices with a single Connector and are indicating in the UI that multiple connectors are reporting for a device.

Ivanti Neurons Platform
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.
Use scopes to define which devices and people members can see and manage. Administrators can create a scope containing a static list of devices or they can create a scope that works dynamically based on filters.

App Registrations is a new authentication mechanism to allow selected Ivanti applications to securely connect to Ivanti Neurons in order to interact with specific APIs. The initial supported integration is Ivanti-hosted Cherwell Service Management.

When adding an Azure SSO client secret, you can now specify a Client Secret Expiry Date. Reminders will be sent via email and UI banner ahead of the secret expiring, to prompt administrators to take action and review before the secret expires and interrupts service. A banner will be shown and email sent to users with the admin role, 28 days before the expiry. Further emails will be sent 7 days prior, and a day before expiry.
Learn more about how to External Authentication (SSO).
The agent client is a multi-function program that safeguards an endpoint device. It tracks the status of the machine and performs actions that are configured by the program administrator. It can perform periodic scans to detect all missing patches and product levels, and it can deploy any missing patches and product levels in order to close security holes in the software.
