Cloud-based single sign-on (SSO) from Duo provides users with an easy and consistent login experience for any and every application, whether it's on-premises or in the cloud.
With Duo, you can protect access to popular web applications, websites, blogs and team collaboration tools. Duo verifies the identities of your users with two-factor authentication and checks the security health of their devices before granting access to your web applications.
Right out of the box you’ll have access to pre-configured integrations, and since Duo SSO protects any SAML 2.0-enabled application, you can set up new integrations as needed.
If you want to implement MFA very quickly, Duo is the best choice. We chose Duo because of its many features like Duo SSO that are easy to use and cost effective. One person was able to implement it quickly for 24,000 people in our complex environment.— Alexander Stanovoy, Senior Security Architect, Diebold Nixdorf
Duo’s SSO can be used in conjunction with VPNs and other remote access technologies to provide a streamlined work-from-anywhere experience. Because Duo’s Multi-factor Authentication protects every authentication, employees can use their SSO credentials to remotely access applications without introducing additional security risks.
For a VPN-free user experience, Duo’s SSO can also be paired with the Duo Network Gateway, Duo’s modern remote access proxy. This configuration provides a friction-free login experience that’s just as secure as traditional remote access solutions.
Provide access to all SSO applications from a single, user-friendly interface with Duo Central. Cloud-based and hosted by Duo, Duo Central is a great way to direct users straight to the frictionless login workflows you’ve set up. Duo Central can be configured to provide each employee with the exact applications they need, allowing you to control security at the application level and ensure that only employees with the proper permissions can access sensitive information.
Duo’s SSO easily integrates with identity managers like Microsoft’s Active Directory, Azure Active Directory and Okta, so there’s no need to rip and replace any of your existing security architecture. You can easily activate Duo SSO, choose your identity provider, and set up the applications you’d like to protect, all straight from your administrator dashboard — no complicated installations required.
