Enabling employees to use their own device when working from home helps organizations and IT leaders scale their remote work capacity. Having a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategy will help save time and money by reducing the need to purchase and manage corporate owned devices for each employee.

What are some safety concerns around allowing BYOD?

Historically, the corporate owned approach to device management was necessary to ensure security – however, that is no longer the case. A cloud-based access and device management solution makes it easy and secure for your users to bring their own device and access your corporate network, applications, and data.

How do we manage access with these devices?

Microsoft’s Azure Active Directory can provide secure access from any device and instill confidence that your users are who they say they are regardless of which device they are using to access secure networks.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (InTune + Configuration Manager) allows your organization to protect corporate data through Mobile Device Management. This approach offers offers flexibility to only manage corporate-specific applications through Mobile Application Management policies which can be particularly helpful in BYOD scenarios.

Scale your remote work capacity with a unified endpoint management solution that:

  • Allows your users to bring any device including iOS, Android, Windows and macOS
  • Streamlines and automates deployment, provisioning, policy management, app delivery and updates from a single pane of glass
  • Scales seamlessly by leveraging Microsoft’s intelligent and distributed cloud service architecture
  • Safeguards corporate data when employees or partners access work files whether or not their device is enrolled
