      No Comments on Ivanti Workspace Control

The Ivanti Workspace Control, formerly known as “RES Workspace One” a.k.a. “RES Workspace Manager” a.k.a “RES Powerfuse”, is an user context driven digital workplace manager. This sounds as a bit of a mouthful but it covers the subject. It can cleverly handle the user related settings, such as drive mappings, application configuration settings, printer mappings flexible manner.

In this blog the focus will be on installing/configuring and working using the Ivanti Workspace Control 10.4.0.0 which has been published as a major release on February 4th 2020, see release notes.

While starting the installation of the Ivanti components individually you might run into a Microsoft Defender SmartScreen message as these individual components are apparently detected as “Publisher: Unknown Publisher”. To circumvent this you can just use the ~240 megabytes sized “Ivanti Workspace Control Installer 10.4.0.0.msi”
