Etsy Customer Story

With well over 600 users spanning 4 different continents and nearly a dozen countries, Etsy uses Duo’s two-factor authentication to protect their remote access solution, log viewing systems, SSH and custom-developed internal systems, used by everyone at the company.

Etsy used the bulk enroll option offered by Duo Security. According to Ben, this was the best option for Etsy as it sends an enrollment email to each user, allowing them to provision new users without even needing to know their phone number.

For their users, it was incredibly easy - they simply get an email to enroll on their first day of work, walk through the easy prompts to get signed up, and then they’re done.

We've had nothing but good experiences with Duo. It's one of those rare security companies that actually has great UX and it's fair to say that our userbase finds it extremely easy and that makes my life easier. If people find it easy to use then they'll actually use it and that means that I sleep a little bit better at night. — Rich Smith, Director of Security
