Implementing Duo produced time savings for end users, help desk staff, security analysts, and other IT staff compared to the organizations’ prior solution. Duo also decreased those organizations’ risk of a credentials-related security breach by providing better intelligence around all authentication attempts, simplifying the comprehensive and consistent application of security policies, and enabling proactive identification of authentication vulnerabilities.
Cisco Secure Access by Duo secures access to applications in the cloud or on-premises by using multifactor authentication (MFA), passwordless authentication, single sign-on, and device posture checks to authenticate the identity of end users seeking to access those applications. This provides visibility into each authentication attempt, including the security status of the multiple devices that may be associated with each end user’s account. Duo also simplifies an organization’s enforcement of access security policies across the enterprise while adapting to user, device, and application risk.
