Covisint customers across healthcare, manufacturing and energy will benefit from bolstered security
RSA Conference 2012 — San Francisco — February 28, 2012 — Duo Security, Inc., an authentication-as-a-service software provider, today announced a new partnership with Covisint, a Compuware company and leader in cloud-based enterprise collaboration. The partnership and integration of the two companies’ services will bring multi-factor authentication to Covisint customers via mobile devices. Covisint will demonstrate the new offering at RSA Conference in booth #554.
Covisint helps businesses share critical information between employees, suppliers, partners and customers by having them first authenticate to the Covisint platform, commonly with a username and password. Duo Security leverages users’ mobile phones, adding a second factor of authentication that significantly reduces the risk of unauthorized access to valuable information and systems.
“Duo Security brings a seamless strong authentication experience to over 500 customers around the world,” said Dug Song, CEO of Duo Security. “We aim to make two-factor authentication usable and accessible to as broad and diverse a user base as possible and partnerships with industry leaders are essential to achieving this goal. We’re very excited to integrate our service with Covisint — a cloud computing pioneer — and to extend our authentication capabilities to Covisint’s customers.”
“We have tremendous respect for the Duo Security team and the work they are doing to broaden access to two-factor authentication,” said Dave Miller, Covisint’s Chief Security Officer. Making the Duo offering a part of the Covisint Platform underscores our commitment to providing innovative identity management solutions to our customers. Duo’s service will immediately benefit Covisint customers.”
The Duo Security platform very easily integrates with a variety of server applications and network appliances. With this latest partnership, Covisint customers will be able to enable Duo’s two-factor authentication capability with a simple configuration change. End users will be able to leverage an existing phone — home, work, or mobile — with their Duo-enabled user account. When logging into an application or service that runs on the Covisint platform they can receive and respond to a phone call, text message, or push notification from Duo Security in order to securely authenticate to the Covisint application.
