What is Device as a Service?

D aaS – Automate Device Provisioning and Grant User Self-Service.

Atea Device as a Service (DaaS) will secure your environment and save time for your employees and IT department by automating the initial setup of a device and managing on-going updates for Windows 10 and Office 365. Supporting both – company owned devices and a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) concept which will secure and protect your devices and data together with flexible application installations from a self-service portal.

Mobilize your business

Preparing devices can be time consuming and in many cases more expensive than the actual purchase of the device. With Atea Device as a Service, we have developed a solution where an employee can buy a device with the latest version Windows 10 and Office 365 directly from Atea eShop, and at first logon the device is configured with the correct shortcuts, programs and settings defined for your business. Additionally, Windows 10 and Office 365 will be kept up-to-date through regular updates, including: critical security updates, monthly quality updates (includes fixes & security updates), and semi-annual feature updates. Each user can use up to 5 different devices, including smart phones and tablets, the settings will always synchronize.
