- [Narrator] Bring your own device, BYOD for short, is becoming poplar in schools and businesses because it enables users to access corporate resources from their own personal devices. These devices can be laptops, tablets or phones, among others. BYOD helps keep corporate cost down. By limiting new hardware purchases. But, poses new problems with regard to security. Let's explore some of those issues. Network administrators must be able to protect company data while it's being accessed from or stored on a user's personal device.
And, solutions must be in place for what to do if a personal device is lost or stolen. Or when a user is no longer employed by the company. This is where device registration comes in. With device registration, a user simply enters the applicable credentials to access the resources available to them. Administrators decide what is available and when, and retain the option to control what's on the device and even erase everything on it, should the need arise. User's join device registration from Settings.
Click Start, Settings and Accounts. Click Access work or school and you can see the option to enroll in device management here. There are more options though. There's an option to connect at the top if you have credentials to connect to resources at work or school. And depending on your operating system you might see an option for Azure ID. This is for Office 365 accounts and other Microsoft services. And, you can add or remove provisioning packages you've acquired as well.
These are all different types of management systems and you'll need to know which one to select before you can enroll. Most should offer access to resources though. Which can include data and internal internet's but might also include enterprise Apps, digital certificates and VPM profiles among other things. I'm interested in device management here so I'll click Enroll only in device management. I have access to this because I'm joined to a domain. You might or might not see this particular link. I don't have any credentials for device management so for now I'll close the window.
I just wanted to give you an idea that it's Wizard based and that it's easy to set up. These device management options are fairly new features only available in the latest Window server editions. And they aren't something school's and company's throw together on a whim. It takes a lot of infrastructure and set-up to make this type of access available.
