Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most useful feature of Avalanche is remote control — especially the ability to remotely install packages to many devices all at once. When the client has, for example, 100 devices needing updates, it would take far too long to update each device individually. But with Avalanche, we just connect to all the devices through the PC and send the updates out with one click.""Installing the packages remotely and remote control are the most valuable features. There are around 100 pieces or devices, and the only way to send a package to a device is by connecting to the PC and then manually sending the package. By using Avalanche, we can send a package to all devices with one click. It is very stable and easy to use. Their technical support is also very good. We have implemented this solution for our clients, and they are satisfied with this solution. It does what it is meant to do."

"The solution is very good at securing files. For example, if I forward a secure document, it's blocked from others, as I can send it with restrictions in relation to who can open it.""Integration between our departments has been the most valuable.""You can scale the solution up or down by department.""The solution offers excellent documentation that is easily available online."

Cons
"Because our clients are all very satisfied with Ivanti from their side, there is little I can say about room for improvement. However, I think that to stay competitive with other solutions offering a similiar solution, Ivanti could look into making their products more affordable.""Its price could be improved. It could be cheaper. I would like to see a better approach for Android and an easy way to send packages and manage devices."

More Ivanti Avalanche Cons →

"The licensing is quite expensive.""The MDM part of the engine could be better.""We did the deployment with the help of Microsoft's consultants. But sometimes, we found it difficult to educate the application developers to integrate.""Technical support could be improved. Sometimes they use a third party that's not so knowledgeable in the product and that can slow down things a bit."

    Top Answer: 
    You can scale the solution up or down by department.
    Top Answer: 
    The licensing period is three or four years and it's a pretty penny. We get it off a cooperative, meaning we share the cost with separate entities. I don't remember the exact amount.
    Top Answer: 
    My suggestion would be just for IT, for us, to continue pushing it out and making it more knowledgeable and easy to use for those that are not as savvy with technology. We don't want them to overthink… more »
