Ivanti, formally known as LANDesk, is a product in use by Saunders Technical Support in order to provide remote assistance to our users and deploy software. While our users do not need to be concerned about most of the functionality of Ivanti, it does help to be informed about some of the things you may notice with the software installed onto your system.

This will open a new window. From here, you can use the Switch Mode button to switch from Direct Mode to Gateway Mode. Once you click the button, the window will disappear.
