Hello and welcome to enrollment methods for Windows devices. In this lesson, we’ll take a quick overview-type look at the different enrollment options that are available for Windows devices.

Before you can manage your organization’s devices and apps, the devices must first be enrolled in the Intune service. When a device is enrolled in Intune, it receives an MDM certificate, which it then uses to communicate with the Intune service.

The table on your screen highlights the many methods available for enrolling your organization’s Windows devices. The method you use will depend largely on whether it’s a personal or corporate device, the device type, and your management requirements.

Notice in this table that you have the BYOD method, Device Enrollment Manager, Auto-enroll, and autopilot, which is probably the most common enrollment method for Windows devices. You also have Bulk Enrollment, Co-management, and you can even use GPOs to enroll Windows devices. We’ll touch on each of these in a little more detail in the upcoming lecture.
