Introducing Duo’s Two Federal Editions

Duo offers two FedRAMP Authorized editions that deliver strong cloud-based authentication and device visibility tailored to the demands of public sector organizations. Duo Federal MFA and Duo Federal Access provide secure application access for federal agencies and other public sector customers to ensure only trusted users and trusted devices can access protected applications.

Federal MFA offers agencies federal-grade authentication, while Federal Access adds a stronger policy, which includes stronger role-based and location-based access policies, biometric authentication enforcement, allowing or denying access based on device hygiene and notifying users to self-remediate out-of-date devices.
