NEW REPORT: Customer Chronicles: Securing State and Local Government Agencies with Strong MFA

State and local government agencies’ networks and systems contain mountains of sensitive citizen data - from financial info to social security numbers to voter registrations. This puts them in a unique position and makes them an attractive target for potential attackers. Police and health departments, city and county offices and other agencies all operate a little differently, but one thread that connects them is the need to protect their citizens and their data.

And they must do this while working to modernize their cyber security and IT environments and meet compliance, and find security solutions that work with legacy systems, stay within their budget and can be deployed quickly. 

At Duo we believe security should be simple and powerful as well as easy to use and install. We built Duo’s MFA (multi-factor authentication) to solve these problems.
