Stronger MFA with Verified Duo Push or FIDO2

Duo’s MFA solution helps prevent security breaches by stopping the use of stolen credentials. In conjunction with the Verified Duo Push or the phishing-resistant FIDO2 (WebAuthn) authentication methods, you can achieve security resilience against bad actors looking to exploit push phishing or MFA fatigue.

As simple as it is secure

The key to strong security is usable security. Duo users appreciate the simplified user experience that SSO provides them — login just once to access all applications, securely.

No more “I forgot my password”

With passwordless authentication, users can securely login via Duo Mobile or FIDO2 authentication — no password is required. This helps reduce password-related IT costs while simultaneously boosting organizational security and your team’s user experience.

Micro-manage your device permissions

With Duo’s trusted endpoints verification, administrators can block access from unknown devices and only allow managed, registered personal, or BYOD devices to gain access to resources.
