Process Description

To support business goals for workforce empowerment, productivity, and IT cost reduction, the Device Policy defines the standard for provisioning, configuration, and management of user devices. It includes topics such as approved applications, hardware and software configuration, security protocols, and BYOD policies. However, like all policies, a periodic audit is needed to validate that it is having the desired impact.

Module 07f, Device Compliance Audit, focuses on compliance with the device policy and on software licensing. It is designed to be performed remotely, using the hardware and software asset information available from the desktop management solution. The module covers preparation for the audit, evaluation of the current device policy, compliance evaluation, results review, and deficiency remediation.

This module consists of the Module Overview Diagram plus 4 pages of detailed process maps personalized for your company.
