Re: Variable Access Model
Ok thanks! Based on your last statement:

"if we see an employee attempting to access the network through a known and highly assured device, compared to an employee using a computer kiosk at the airport, the experience is going to be different."

I know you can't quantify your user data publicly. However, can you divulge confirmation that this is a container based approach on distinct levels of trust? Or is there some other methodology thats being used? Thanks.

Re: Variable Access Model
Marilyn and Ryan, thank you for commenting. I'm glad you found my post valuable. Unfortunately, we can't share data on the number of employees at each access level. One reason for this is that those numbers can vary greatly from day to day, as one of the factors that we take into account is the device's location. The numbers can also change regularly as employees change the device they are using. For example, if we see an employee attempting to access the network through a known and highly assured device, compared to an employee using a computer kiosk at the airport, the experience is going to be different.

Re: Variable Access Model
Me too, though, most companies dealing with BYOD don't have the scale (or resources) of a Microsft. It's still illuminating to see how an organzation of that size handles the problem.

Re: Variable Access Model
Good question Marilyn! I would think that whatever the quantity would be that they would have to implement some container methodology based on set trust levels for there MDM/EMM solution. I would be interested to here the technical aspect of there plan.

Variable Access Model
Thanks for sharing some of the inner workings of Microsoft's byod policy.  340,000 devices is a lot of BYO to manage! Curious to know how many of those have full access to corporate assets and does that number encompass employees or strategic partners as well?
