Protecting Patient Data with Duo

We provide information security solutions that integrate with electronic healthcare record systems (EHRs) to protect patient data from unauthorized access. Duo offers secure two-factor authentication that’s quick and easy for busy healthcare professionals to use. Choose from a variety of authentication methods:

  • Single Sign-On - Securely access all enterprise cloud applications by logging into a web portal once.
  • Duo Push - Send a push notification to your device, and log in by taping ‘Approve.’
  • Phone Callback - Call a phone, then log in by answering and pressing a key.
  • SMS Passcode - Get an SMS message with a code, type it in and log in.

HIPAA Security Rule guidelines on accessing electronic protected health information (ePHI) recommend using two-factor authentication to mitigate the risk of lost or stolen credentials that could result in unauthorized access to ePHI.

Two-factor authentication is also required by the Drug Enforcement Agency’s mandates for securing e-prescriptions. Practitioners must use two forms of identification for identity-proofing, to sign and verify digital prescriptions.

Duo also offers comprehensive endpoint visibility, tracking outdated or vulnerable devices that attempt to authenticate into your environment, and offering your users and admins the ability to update those devices.

With customizable policy and controls, you can block at-risk devices from connecting to your network, reducing the risk of transferring malware or allowing external attackers to exploit vulnerabilities to breach your company. Learn more about Duo's solutions for Healthcare.

Altegra Health Case Study

With Duo Security, Altegra Health was able to deploy two-factor authentication to cover Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) desktops. Duo offered Altegra Health a much easier deployment process, inexpensive overhead costs and minimal strain to their small support team.

Duo alleviated Altegra's concerns about network connectivity issues by offering a variety of different authentication methods, including SMS-based passcodes and phone callbacks for authenticating while offline.

Our admins love Duo's easy and intuitive administrative panel. Our users like that it doesn’t disrupt their workflow more than necessary. — Mark Kueffner, Senior Director of IT Systems Architecture & Operations
