Welcome to Ivanti Mobility Manager

Ivanti® Mobility Manager 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 Management Suite 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 the 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, there are certain tasks 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 (Exchange 2010 only). Connection rules determine which device types can access mailboxes.

Mobility Manager is installed by default with the Management Suite core server. However, you must perform some tasks to set up the notification services. For information on getting started, see the following sections:

Mobility Manager components and traffic

By default, Mobility Manager is installed with Management Suite 10.0.

The diagram below shows the components that interact when you use Mobility Manager.

1: Android or iOS devices, 2: GCM (Google Cloud Messaging for Android) or APNS (Apple Push Notification) services,3: firewall, 4: Ivanti Cloud Services Appliance (CSA), 5: LDMS 10.0 core server with Ivanti Mobility Manager

Devices connect to the Ivanti® Management Suite core server through a Ivanti Cloud Services Appliance (CSA). When you send profiles or commands to the devices, the traffic is sent to the devices using the appropriate protocol (GCM for Android devices or APNS for iOS devices).

You MUST have a CSA in order to manage Android and iOS devices.
