Customer Email—Our Commitment to You
March 16, 2020
Our lives and businesses are changing daily in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is an uncertain and unprecedented time for everyone — and our concern is always first and foremost the health and safety of our employees, partners and customers.
We also take seriously the trust you have in us to help you operate your business every single day, in any environment. I want personally update you about our preparation and the operational plan we have in place to continue to provide you the same level of service and responsiveness you count on from Ivanti.
First, an internal task force was put in place and has been meeting almost daily for weeks. This team has worked together to review the latest updates from around the world, confirm our contingency and continuity plans, and ensure and test our readiness. They have also managed how we are responding to the situation internally and externally as it continues to change daily.
Additionally, we are closely monitoring and following guidelines set by national, state and local government agencies to limit any risk to our employees, partners and customers. One of the most significant guidelines impacting our normal office routine is the recommendation by many countries and states to limit or eliminate large groups and remain at home as much as possible. We have been ready for this possibility, and most of Ivanti’s employees around the world are leveraging technology and now remotely working while continuing to help Ivanti maintain normal business operations.
Finally, I want to send a sincere thank you from every one of us at Ivanti for continuing to trust us to keep your business networks and infrastructure safe and operational. It truly is what motivates and inspires us every day.
