Duo Hosts Higher Education Security Panel at the Internet2 Tech Exchange

Duo Security is sponsoring the Internet2’s Technology Exchange, an annual tech/education event hosted in Cleveland, Ohio from Oct. 4-7 this year.

Duo will also be exhibiting two-factor authentication and endpoint security solutions for higher education. Several top universities protect their students, staff and faculty logins with Duo, including Duke University, Berkeley, Virginia Tech, Boston University, University of Michigan, and many more. Read more about Duo’s Success Stories.

The tech exchange brings together tech professionals, scientists, engineers, architects, students and more to discuss cloud services, security, trust and federated identity, storage and networking and more to redefine the tech landscape.

Access Security for Higher Education

Duo Security will be hosting a community user group at the tech exchange, Duo Security Special Interest Group (SIG) to raise awareness of two-factor authentication (also known as multi-factor authentication) and how to reduce security friction for faculty, staff and student end users that need to log in daily.

Duo invites attendees to share experiences related to authentication, and higher-ed-specific use cases.

We’ll also discuss:

  • Emerging multifactor authentication strategies
  • Policy and compliance concerns
  • Expanding a current implementation
