Secure Your Remote Workforce, Fast

Users have left the building, and it's up to your security team to make sure they are protected on any device, wherever and whenever they choose to work. Remote workers need secure access to their applications and critical resources, whether they reside in the public cloud or on-premises behind perimeter security. At Duo, the number of companies interested in being a Duo Technology Partner has grown by 70% and new integrations supporting Duo have doubled.

Why Security Is Important, Especially for Remote Work Environment

  • 81% of breaches involve compromised credentials. The threat of compromised credentials can magnify when you are outside of your office work environment.

  • 52% of survey respondents stated mobile devices are challenging to defend. When working remotely, employees use multiple devices to access your network and applications. Unknown and unmanaged devices are a risk.

  • 27% of organizations are currently using multi-factor authentication (MFA) when accessing any application. It is good to see organizations adopting MFA, but this should be a practice all organizations use.
