Azure AD Integration IV: Azure AD Enrollment

Azure AD Enrollment Overview

In comparison to Windows Autopilot, the Azure Active Directory Enrollment can be performed from the out-of-the-box experience and additionally from the Settings application for already used devices. Azure AD Enrollment allows a very simple and convenient enrollment mechanism for devices and without any interaction of the IT department. As well as for Windows Autopilot, a Mobility (MDM and MAM) application is required in your Azure Active Directory Tenant with specific permissions and the URLs of your Silverback instance. Within this guide, we will perform the Azure Active Directory Enrollment from the out-of-the-box experience. 

Your users only need to connect to an internet connection, and they need to know their Azure Active Directory Credentials and can enroll the device within a few steps. After that, Silverback can apply all configurations and can transform the device into an enterprise ready and secured device and can install the UEM Agent to install Software Packages on top. Additionally, you can easily deploy the EgoSecure Data Protection agent for an additional security layer.
