Ivanti Policy Secure virtual machines (VM) are enabled to provision licenses through the Ivanti Cloud Licensing Service (ICLS). For this, administrator needs to obtain an Authentication code from Ivanti Support and apply it in Download Licenses page of Ivanti Policy Secure admin console. The Ivanti Policy Secure also periodically sends heartbeat messages to ICLS for auditing purposes.
