Ivanti announced it has closed the acquisitions of MobileIron, a leading provider of mobile-centric unified endpoint management solutions, and Pulse Secure LLC, a leading provider of secure access and mobile security solutions. This business combination further solidifies Ivanti, which is backed by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. and TA Associates, as a global market leader in Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Zero Trust Security, and IT Service Management (ITSM).

"We are excited to welcome the MobileIron and Pulse Secure teams into the Ivanti family," said Jim Schaper, Ivanti Chairman and CEO.
