AWS customers can protect their applications authenticated through Directory Service with Duo’s MFA in less than 10 minutes using the Quick Start. The gold-standard for deploying third-party services in AWS, the Quick Start meets best practices of security and high availability. Supported by Duo and AWS, the Duo MFA Quick Start also offers technical and troubleshooting support.
With the rise of hybrid work, employees need to access private applications, but organizations must balance that access with security. AWS customers can use Duo Single Sign-On (SSO) as an OIDC (OpenID Connect) identity provider to validate user identity. Duo SSO integrates with AWS Verified Access to set appropriate security controls for granting access to AWS-hosted private applications. Plus, this solution doesn’t require use of traditional remote access solutions like VPNs (virtual private networks) so it enables organizations to maintain a strong security resilience posture without added friction for users.
