Ivanti Access overview

Ivanti Access allows access to enterprise cloud resources based on user and device posture, and whether apps are managed or not. Non-AppConnect managed apps and AppConnect apps are supported. Authentication traffic for managed apps uses Ivanti Tunnel and for AppConnect apps uses AppTunnel. In addition, conditional rules can be configured to allow access for unmanaged applications, as well as, manage access from mobile devices, laptops, and desktops.

Deployment modes

Ivanti Access consists of two modes of deployment.

  • Ivanti Access
    In an Ivanti Access deployment, Access integrates directly with a UEM to get device posture and compliance information from the UEM.
  • Ivanti Access + Standalone Sentry
    In an Ivanti Access + Standalone Sentry, Access integrates with Standalone Sentry to get device posture and compliance. In this deployment, Ivanti Access has two components:
    • The Ivanti Access administrative portal, which is a SaaS service. Federated pair setup and configurations are done in the Ivanti Access administrative portal.
    • The Access gateway, which runs on Standalone Sentry, enforces conditional access policies and provides native mobile app single sign-on (SSO).

Ivanti Access in either deployment provides the following features:

  • Integration with business cloud service providers (SP).
  • Integration with identity providers (IdP). Conditional rules to allow, block, and warn Access.
  • Secure access to enterprise cloud based services.
  • Federated authentication with SAML or WS-Fed.
  • Visibility into users, devices, and apps accessing cloud services.
  • Prevention of unauthorized devices and apps from accessing cloud based services.
