#Whats #InvGate #March #Updates

March brings some relevant news for our solutions. InvGate Service Desk got certified, and InvGate Insight’s integrations have expanded, amongst other exciting announcements.

But before we see the product updates in detail, let’s begin with huge company news!

New SOC 2 Type II certification

InvGate renewed the SOC 2 Type II certification! We’re particularly proud of this achievement since it guarantees our users that:

  • We have the required data security controls in place to protect customer data against unauthorized access.
  • We can detect anomalies and security incidents across their entire ecosystem.
  • We are well-prepared to quickly repair damage and restore functionality in case of a data breach or system failure.

InvGate Service Desk

New PeopleCert’s ITIL 4 certification

InvGate Service Desk is now accredited as an ITIL tool vendor! The product has recently obtained PeopleCert’s ITIL 4 certification, which makes it one of the few tools in the industry to meet industry and ITIL best practices.

This certification is a reinforcement of our commitment to deliver reliable solutions for our users, that ease the process of adhering to an ITSM framework.

The certified practices are:

InvGate AI Hub launch

 

 

InvGate Service Desk expanded its AI-powered features! We launched the InvGate AI Hub, a set of tools and capabilities that put artificial intelligence in the service of IT teams.

The capabilities are available as a free beta for cloud customers and include the following:

By integrating AI capabilities into our solutions, we aim to enhance user experience, streamline workflows, and improve the efficiency of service delivery through the latest tech advances. This release is just the beginning of many more advances to come. 

Usability update in the Virtual Agent for Microsoft Teams

The Virtual Agent for Microsoft Teams also got an enhancement. Until now, if a field was configured as a “tree field,” the user couldn’t select it from the Virtual Agent interface as they were not supported by the chat/channel. This was a complication because incidents created through this channel lacked some key information. 

Now, users can see and choose a single value from a tree custom field as a list on Microsoft Teams. This improvement means that incidents created through this platform now provide the same level of information for agents to have at hand.

InvGate Insight

New Integration with Microsoft Intune

invgate-insight-microsoft-intune-integration

InvGate Insight’s integrations now include Microsoft Intune Device Synchronization. This means you can create a new Discovery Source using Intune to manage user access to organizational resources, simplifying the administration of applications and devices.

Available from v2.8, this integration consolidates all organizational assets within Insight, providing a unified platform for streamlined management.

Agentless Discovery for Windows Devices 

Agentless Discovery for Windows Devices enables you to use the WMI protocol to obtain additional information from Windows devices, as WMI comes pre-installed on nearly all Microsoft operating systems.

The reason behind this improvement is to expand the Discovery capabilities of Insight to provide comprehensive insights into your networked devices without the need for individual installations.

Although it doesn’t replace the data collected by Insight’s Agent, it’s an excellent alternative in situations where deploying many tools isn’t practical due to device startup requirements.

To explore this feature, all you need to do is create or edit an InvGate Discovery Source, select the “WMI” protocol, and introduce the relevant credentials.

 

Visibility rules: Create dynamic permission rules based on smart tags

If you have multiple InvGate Insight users with different privileges, this update will be of particular interest. Now you can establish visibility rules for assets using tags and smart tags, facilitating the segmentation of asset visibility to authorized Information Systems (IS) users. 

This update constitutes a security enhancement since users can ensure that only authorized individuals can access specific assets. Additionally, the feature simplifies Asset Management by centralizing control and segmentation, improving operational efficiency.

Continuous improvement: Updates to enhance InvGate Insight

In addition to the enhancements above, we’ve also implemented some other updates to InvGate Insight, which include the following:

  • A new deployment section has been added to the Asset’s Profile, displaying the plans in which the asset is included.
  • Plans can be generated for an asset directly within its profile.
  • Mapped Drives data were added to the Computer Profile.
  • The ability to auto-detect conflicts between assets whose source is JAMF and resolve the merge of them.
  • The ability to detect docking stations connected to a device.

And that’s it for now! Remember to contact our support team or your dedicated partner if you have any questions.
