Duo-Hosted SSO (Single Sign-on) Public Beta Is Here!

Introducing Duo-Hosted SSO

Cloud applications can create more flexibility and accessibility for organizations, but they can also create more passwords to manage. Your users are human and can (understandably) take security shortcuts like reusing passwords or making them simple and easy to remember. Unfortunately, that can also make it easier for passwords to be compromised. Luckily, there are solutions to mitigate these risks, and Duo-hosted SSO is here to help!  

Included at no additional cost in our MFA, Access and Beyond editions, our Duo-hosted SSO is a new cloud service that makes it easy for you to set up and protect users and applications. Your users will be able to access multiple applications with one username and password. 

Combined with our strong multi-factor authentication, device trust and access controls, you will have an easy way to secure application access and enable the flexibility users need. 

Duo’s SSO is designed from a security-first perspective and allows you to configure access policies that can differ by application, depending on the sensitivity of its data, the privileges of the user and the device being used. This approach allows you to reduce user friction while protecting your most important assets. 

The Duo-hosted SSO beta will roll out to US deployments over the next few weeks (the set-up option will appear in your admin panel when available). 

You can learn more about Duo-hosted SSO and check to see if your account is eligible by visiting our documentation.  


In the coming months, be on the lookout for more great features like Duo Central, which will allow users to launch applications and more from a central location. 

If you would like to help us shape the future of Duo’s SSO please let us know.
