BYOD Device Vetting

IT teams understand the challenge of assessing the suitability and security of candidates’ devices for BYOD deployments.

It’s best to have an understanding of hardware compatibility as early as possible, ideally before they’ve been hired or even invited to an interview.

Eliminate time spent getting device information and troubleshooting issues before candidates are hired.

How does the BYOD device vetting solution work?

ThinScale’s Validation Tool is configured by your IT team and is deployed to candidates via a link, which can be hosted anywhere or sent directly.

Once the Validation Tool is started it will immediately begin scanning the device. Name confirmation or PIN / password data fields are optional.

The Validation Tool checks the endpoint based on pre-configured IT policy and reports findings back to the IT team.
As part of the process, candidates that fail a particular check can be given links to how-to guides, allowing them to troubleshoot without IT help.

The validation tool can check everything from the security posture of the device to the candidate’s home network speed.
