Cisco Duo

Verify users' identities, gain visibility into every device

Today's workforce relies on an incredible variety of programs and platforms for productivity, and it can be difficult to provide on-demand access to these tools without compromising on security. Luckily, Cisco Duo safely puts essential applications at your users' fingertips. Whether you're looking for a new SSO solution or want to protect an existing one, Duo enables a streamlined login experience that's backed by airtight information security.



What is Cisco Duo?

Duo is your simple and flexible approach to security and data protection: it ensures only the right users and secure devices can access applications and your company’s data regardless of location.

Following the zero-trust approach “never trust, always ask”, Duo is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) service which verifies that your users are who they say they are, and ensures that any device accessing corporate resources are patched and compliant with their corporate security policies.

In addition to the unique access panel, Duo’s Device Trust makes it easy for organisations to gain just the right level of visibility needed to attest to the devices and define each user to which resource they have access, and avoid side attacks within the network if the credentials were stolen.

What is Two Factor Authentication?

Two factor authentication or MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) allows you to proactively reduce the risk of a data breaches. By verifying users’ identities you can gain visibility into every device, and enforce adaptive policies to secure access to every application within your network. Clientless remote access for multicloud environments and remote workers is achievable with MFA and it is all managed through one single dashboard.

Based on individual users, you can individually configure each security policy and network access restrictions or freedoms to every one of your employees. Make informed decisions on restrictions by surveying client and customer activity on your network negating potential risks as soon as possible. For organisations of all sizes, Duo’s trusted access solution creates trust in users, devices and the applications they access.

The concern in not having Cisco Duo deployed is that your whole network becomes twice as vulnerable, malicious hackers have to break past two security barriers whilst in the meanwhile your Cisco platforms and IT manager can identify these threats and terminate them before they gain any access to your network.


Cisco Duo Integrations

Cisco Duo is your comprehensive security solution that confirms the identity of the users and the status of the devices. Duo is integrated with Cisco Umbrella to provide strong user authentification, device security hygiene check and visibility thereby ensuring access to Umbrella.

Securing your remote access Duo integrates with mostly VPN provider making a strong user authentication as well as device health checks. This integrated solution provides security admins with the ability to enforce consistent user and device based access policy for VPN access, therefore reducing the risk of breaches. Umbrella identifies malicious domains, IPs, as well as anomalies and predicts emerging threats. Umbrella provides first line of defence against threats whilst protecting logins into Umbrella which is critical to maintain the integrity of security infrastructure. Duo is integrated with Umbrella to provide strong user authentication and device security hygiene checks ensuring access to Umbrella is not compromised.
