This message is displayed if you are a member of a security group providing access to High Risk data AND you are connecting from a non-compliant device or personal device. Here are some steps in order to ensure your device is compliant and will be able to continue accessing High Risk data.

  • On a mobile device install the Microsoft "Company Portal" application and sign-in. Additional information is available here:
  • On a Windows computer, verify you are connecting from a university owned computer that is centrally managed.
    • You may also be required to install the "Windows 10 Accounts" browser extension to use the Chrome web browser. Microsoft Edge is recommended.
  • On a macOS computer, verify you are connecting from a university owned computer and go to Jamf Self-Service, and select the option to install the Company Portal and enable device compliance.

Your local IT support teams can assist with the installation process.
