Compliance Policies

Compliance Policies help protect organizational data by requiring users and devices to meet some minimum requirements prior to being allowed access to organizational resources.

Compliance Policies define:

  • The rules and settings that users and managed devices must meet to be compliant. Examples of rules include requiring devices run a minimum OS version, or devices are not allowed to be jail-broken or rooted.
  • The actions that apply to devices that don’t meet your compliance rules. Examples of actions include being remotely locked, or sending a device user email about the device status so they can fix it.

If you use Conditional Access, your Conditional Access policies can use your device compliance results to block access to resources from noncompliant devices.

Required Group Membership: Admin.DeviceCompliance
