Management and Security
Welcome to Ivanti Mobility Manager
Ivanti® Mobility Manager MDM helps you take control of the mobile devices used in your company. It simplifies device provisioning, helps enforce corporate policies, and allows an administrator to lock or wipe lost or stolen devices.
Ivanti® Mobility Manager adds these tools to the Endpoint Manager console:
•Android and iOS agents. Allows you to manage Android and iOS devices, remotely lock, unlock, or wipe them, or configure device settings.
•Mobile inventory. An addition to your inventory that lists mobile devices that are under management or, if you set up a connection to an Exchange server, devices that have connected to your Exchange server.
•Mobile software packages. Distribute apps to mobile devices from a web server, or from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
In addition to these tools, tasks are added to the console that can be performed using your Microsoft Exchange Server (EAS 2007 or 2010):
•Discover devices. Configure your server to report a list of devices that have connected. Use the list of discovered devices to determine devices that need to be under management.
•Wipe devices. Use a command sent through the EAS to wipe a device that connects to your server. This wipe is a factory reset.
•Create connection rules. Connection rules determine which device types can access mailboxes.
Mobility Manager is installed by default with the Endpoint Manager core server. For information on getting started, see the following sections:
Mobility Manager components and traffic
By default, Mobility Manager is installed with Endpoint Manager.
The diagram below shows the components that interact when you use Mobility Manager.
1: Android or iOS devices 2: FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging for Android) or APNS (Apple Push Notification) services 3: Firewall 4: Ivanti Cloud Services Appliance (CSA) 5: LDMS core server with Ivanti Mobility Manager
Devices connect to the Endpoint Manager core server through an Ivanti Cloud Services Appliance (CSA). When you send profiles or commands to devices, the traffic is sent to the devices using the appropriate protocol (FCM for Android devices or APNS for iOS devices).
You MUST have a CSA in order to manage Android and iOS devices.
