If you cannot get access to the tools you need, the next best option is to work with management and make an example of one of the policy violators. Any policy is only as good as the enforcement mechanism.

First, the policy for not using personal devices has to include a clear statement of disciplinary actions that will be taken if users violate the policy. This will need to have HR and legal sign-off to protect the company. Then, require everyone with network access to read and sign the updated policy.

Then, start monitoring and logging unauthorized access. Provide either the users manager or HR with the information. If you can work it out so that they catch a user in process even better.

Once word gets around that users are being disciplined for using their own devices, that should reduce if not eliminate improper access.
