Zero-effort, automated device provisioning 

With Imprivata, organisations can reduce the complexity of mobile initiatives and save time implementing new technology by remotely managing, personalising, and updating devices at scale. IT staff can reduce deployment steps dramatically with repeatable, easy-to-manage workflows and attributes.  

IT-free update and reset 

Imprivata now enables the time-tested technique of ‘wipe and re-image’ for iPhones. Your staff can flag an iPhone as ‘Unhealthy’, and the device is reset as new, in less than five minutes, without bothering busy IT staff. 

Launchpad client app 

Launchpad is our patented app for Windows PC and Mac that drives the IT free operation of devices in the field. Running on a headless PC and a USB hub or dock, IT administrators can automate workflows that manage devices where people work. 


Update while devices charge 

With Imprivata, you control Apple’s iOS updates; the updates don’t control you. Upgrade rapidly, gradually, or not at all. You can even downgrade devices during a limited window. Upgrades occur quickly while charging, so staff won’t be interrupted mid-shift. 


Easily create workflows once and deploy anywhere in the world. Our Workflow Editor requires no coding and minimal expertise. Trigger anything and manage iPhones remotely – from iOS updates to full erase and re-provisioning – to run manually or automatically. 

Custom attributes 

When deployments are very similar, but not identical, custom attributes allow you to create placeholders in your workflows for location, building, time zone, group, and user. This keeps workflows simple and scalable. 

Enhance your MDM

Imprivata Mobile Device Lifecycle Management integrates with nearly every MDM provider, for both data execution prevention (DEP) and non-DEP devices.
