Empower your flexible workforce

Maximize your IT investment and empower people to work securely—even on personal devices—with a Bring Your Own PC (BYOPC) device strategy enabled by Windows 365.

Who can benefit from BYOPC?

BYOPC is a great fit for flexible workers and contractors who will only be employed for a short time. IT teams should consider a BYOPC strategy for the following types of workers:

Flexible and remote workers

People who frequently transition from the office to remote work locations and need secure, continuous access to company resources.
