How I Learned How to Stop Worrying and Love Multiple Intune AdministratorsSteve Hosking

It’s late on a Friday, one of the team members on your project makes a change that “should just work”, then goes on a weeklong holiday. What happens next is a lost weekend trying to understand what that change was, why the change was made and trying roll that change back. Even with change management processes in place, we all understand this story. What if we could actively monitor Intune for changes and send out notifications of those changes to key stakeholders for approval?
Using nothing but PowerShell, Microsoft Graph & Azure DevOps we can create a solution to do just that.

Ivanti Patch for SCCM 2.4
Our latest release of our market-leading patch management solution, Ivanti Patch 2.4 for Microsoft System Center, is here. With Ivanti Patch 2.4, you’ll maximize your investment in System Center and reduce risks from unpatched third-party applications with incredible ease.

New and Improved Features in Ivanti Patch 2.4 for SCCM include:
· Package editing
· Metadata publishing
· Ability to import/patch CVE file from vulnerability scanner (Rapid7, Qualys, etc.)
· Smart filter support
· Timestamp server support
· Driver support for Dell and HP
· Support for SCCM1902

Our newest version has the ability to import csv files from the vulnerability scanner and create a custom patch list against CVE files for 3rd party applications. When most reported vulnerabilities come from third-party apps and you have compliance mandates to uphold, patching isn’t optional. So we make it easier. Ivanti Patch for SCCM, (powered by Shavlik), is a plug-in to SCCM that automates the process of discovering and deploying your third-party app patches through the SCCM console.
