Secure Everything, Everywhere

Most of your applications and servers might be on-premises, but some may migrate to the cloud in the near future. Check that the authentication solution can easily integrate with your cloud applications. Additionally, if you’re moving away from managing software and hardware on-premises, then you should consider adopting a cloud-based authentication solution that can scale as needed. Make sure your authentication solution protects what’s important both today and in the future.

If it’s not easy to use, your users won’t use it.

The Duo Mobile app (iOS, Android) and the Device Health app (Windows, MacOS) are BYOD-friendly for remote access and can be used on many different devices. Duo can maintain your device inventory so you have clear visibility into what device is connecting, when and from where. Users can download the app on their personal device without enrolling in device management solutions, ensuring user privacy.

Since 2020, working remotely has evolved from an office perk to a priority, Duo Push can reduce the risk of automated credential theft by more than 99% (other methods Duo supports can be less effective, like SMS authentication). The Department of Homeland Security recommends MFA as a crucial cybersecurity preventative measure.

Duo’s detailed user, administrator and telephony security logs can be easily imported into a security information and event management (SIEM) tool for log analysis, or viewed via Duo’s Admin API for real-time log access. In addition, Duo Trust Monitor employs machine learning and behavioral analytics to simplify risk detection in case of anomalous login activity.
Duo provides a better end user experience for accessing applications by reducing workflow friction and increasing workplace productivity. Duo offers low-friction authentication methods such as Duo Push, biometrics and FIDO security keys. Duo also offers the ability to apply intelligent policies to reduce how often a user is prompted to authenticate, using features such as remembered device. Together, this enables a productive work environment without compromising on security.

Duo’s full-time security team is experienced in running large-scale systems security, and comprises top mobile, app and network security experts. Duo’s operational processes are SOC 2 compliant. Duo’s two-factor authentication cryptographic algorithms are also validated by NIST and FIPS. Duo has achieved ISO (the international security standard) 27001:2013, 27017:2015 & 27018:2019 Certification.

Duo can also help your business meet various compliance requirements and regulatory framework guidelines. Duo Push satisfies Electronic Prescription of Controlled Substance (EPCS) requirements for two-factor authentication in the healthcare industry, while Duo’s one-time passcodes meet FIPS 140-2 compliance for government agencies.

Duo Federal Editions are built to enable customer compliance with FIPS 140-2 compliant authentication standards and align with National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) SP 800-63-3 guidelines. Duo Federal editions meet Authentication Assurance Level 2 (AAL2) with Duo Push or Duo Mobile Passcode for both iOS and Android devices out of the box and by default with no additional configuration required. Duo also supports AAL3 authenticators such as the FIPS Yubikey from Yubico.

Duo Device Trust enables organizations to check and enforce the device security and compliance posture prescribed by standards such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA and the NIST cybersecurity framework.
