Managing security content

When you install Endpoint Manager, the Patch and Compliance tool is included by default. However, without a Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager content subscription, you can only scan for Ivanti software updates and custom definitions. A Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager content subscription enables you to take full advantage of the Patch and Compliance tool by providing access to additional security content.

Ivanti® Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager content types include:

Antivirus updates: For third-party scanners, includes antivirus scanner detection content only. For Ivanti Antivirus, includes both scanner detection content AND virus definition files.

Blocked applications (see the Legal disclaimer for the blocked applications type)

Custom vulnerability definitions

Driver updates

Ivanti software updates

Security threats (system configuration exposures, including firewall detection and configuration)

Software updates



Scanning and remediation functions are not the same for these various content types. For more information on how Patch and Compliance scans for and remediates the different types of detected security risks on managed devices, see the appropriate sections in How Patch and Compliance scans and remediates.

For information about Endpoint Security for Endpoint Manager content subscriptions, contact your Ivanti reseller, or visit the Ivanti website.
