What is Device Health?
Device Health is a small piece of software that runs on Windows and Mac workstations. It significantly enhances our current MFA service.
The goal of this project is to deliver Device Health (a process of analysing a device to determine whether it meets approved security requirements and is thereby trusted and authorised to do something) using software called Device Health Application. Device Health will be rolled out to all staff on a phased basis.
Device Health Rollout
Over the course of the next few months every Staff UCD Connect account will be enrolled into Device Health. Once enrolled, to access any University SSO service, staff will be required to have the Device Health Application on their Apple or Windows computer.
IT Services will contact each cohort ahead of enrollment. The below graphic provides an overview of the expected milestones within this project. These dates are provisional and subject to change depending on how the project processes.

To support the University's Device Protection Policy, IT Services on behalf of the University Management Team have procured a Device Health solution. This will allow the University control access to University Services, on Windows and Apple Mac computers, by ensuring they meet the requirements in the Device Protection Policy.
The selected product is DUO Beyond, a part of the DUO platform already in use for Multi Factor Authentication in UCD. The Device Health Application will be used to provide Device Health. The rules (as defined in the Device Protection Policy) will be applied to all Windows and Apple Mac computers accessing any University IT System or Application using our Single Sign On service, regardless of whether the device is University or personally owned, and of the physical location (on/off Campus) of the device.
