Cisco Duo + Amazon Web Services

Designed to simplify zero trust architecture, Cisco Duo integrates with AWS to ensure strong security with high productivity by establishing user and device trust at the time of access. With Duo’s multi-factor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO), passwordless, and risk-based authentication, AWS customers can enable secure access from anywhere, on any device.

Multiple passwords for numerous AWS applications pose risks such as password reuse, weak passwords, and increased burden on IT and security teams.

With Duo SSO, users can authenticate once and get access to AWS apps using SAML and OIDC.

Streamline the login experience

Authenticate user identity using passwordless methods and minimize friction due to repeated logins.

Leverage smart security

Automatically step-up authentication requirements when Duo’s risk-based authentication detects commonly known attack patterns and high-risk anomalies.

Compatible AWS integrations with Duo include:

Verify devices

In hybrid work environments, organizations allow managed and unmanaged devices to access AWS Workspaces, making it challenging to ensure access to only trusted devices.

Duo Desktop ensures that only trusted devices can access AWS Workspaces.

Check device security posture

Enforce device security policy to grant access to managed devices. Block access from devices that don’t meet security requirements.

Self-remediate devices that are out of compliance

Users can update out-of-date devices without the need to open a ticket with IT.

More visibility, more control for admins

Admins get complete visibility to manage devices accessing applications and identify potential risk issues from the admin dashboard.
