Protecting Patient Data With Two-Factor Authentication

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:

  • Duo Push - Send a push notification to a smartphone, then tap ‘Approve’ to log in.
  • Phone Callback - Call a phone, log in by answering and pressing a key.
  • SMS Passcode - Get an SMS message with a code, type it in and log in.

The HIPAA Security Rule guidance on accessing electronic protected health information (ePHI) recommends using two-factor authentication to mitigate the risk of lost or stolen usernames and passwords 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Duo also offers comprehensive endpoint visibility, tracking outdated or vulnerable devices that attempt to authenticate into your environment, and offering your users and admins the ability to update those devices.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 vulnerable devices from connecting to your network, reducing the risk of transferring malware or allowing an external attacker to exploit a vulnerability to breach your company. Learn more about Duo's solutions for Healthcare.
