Skype for Business MDM Binding

SkypeShield offers Mobile Device Managment (MDM) Conditional Access Solution, which verifies that only devices that are compliant with company’s security policy, as defined by the MDM vendor, can access the corporate network through Skype for Business (Lync).

MDM Conditional Access is available to vendors including AirWatch, MobileIron, MaaS360, XenMobile and soon will comply with GOOD/BlackBerry.

SkypeShield’s solution validates that devices are compliant with the settings defined by the MDM vendor. Once a device fails to comply, all Skype for Business sessions are terminated automatically and access is immediately blocked. For example, Skype for Business access may be blocked to a device that has become jail broken or rooted, or if the user has removed MDM control from the device.

During the sign-in process and  throughout the Skype session, SkypeShield verifies that the device is listed as a valid device on  MDM server and is not listed as Out Of Compliance.

SkypeShield leverages the MDM device owner identify to add another security factor  to the authentication process.

Based on this capability, SkypeShield now offers a no-password Single Sign On authentication by trusting the MDM identity for the authentication.
