As global conflicts spill over into the digital realm, protecting the individual through to the enterprise has taken on a greater sense of urgency. Learn how companies responded to complex global challenges — or missed the mark — and more in Duo’s 2022 Trusted Access Report.
The Trusted Access Report is an annual report analyzing Duo product data — and how our customers are using Duo. This year’s report has taken a decidedly different tone from last year’s iteration, in light of the world stage we find ourselves on.
This is not a chance to press upon fear, uncertainty and doubt. Rather, it’s an opportunity to understand the gravity of where security stands today. As global conflicts spill over into the digital realm, the idea of protecting the individual through to the enterprise has taken on a greater sense of urgency.
In the report, we explore data findings gleaned through review of more than 13 billion authentications from almost 50 million different devices across our customer base in North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, and the Asia Pacific, over the course of a year.
Duo Push-based authentication was used by 92% of all global accounts.
We see a concerted effort to move all access to multi-factor authentication (MFA), not only to reduce the risk to the individual and organization, but also to streamline security operations.
Year-over-year data indicate that remote access and cloud application use are here to stay, and will likely increase in the future.
The percentage of phones with biometrics enabled held steady at around 81%.
Less than 1% of organizations implement explicit geographic-based deny or allow policies.
Duo Push is the most used authentication method, at 27.6% of all authentications.
Failures due to out-of-date devices increased 51.8% between 2021 and 2022.
50% increase in the percentage of accounts allowing WebAuthn authentication since April 2019.
Multi-factor authentication holds strong while adding to the security of only traditional password usage. The number of MFA authentications using Duo rose by 38% in the past year. We’re also seeing an increasingly global adoption of MFA authentications from Ireland, Japan, India, Canada, and the Philippines. This demonstrates that a wider base of countries are rising to the challenge, defending their systems against the threats of today.
The percent increase in MFA among countries with the highest number of integrations.
An increasing number of authentications are attributed to cloud applications with a 24% rise in the percentage of cloud applications in 2022. The year-over-year change between 2021 and 2022 indicates that remote access and cloud application use has continued its upward trajectory and will continue to do so for quite some time.
If we rely on tools of the past and hope to use them to defeat our adversaries, we are doing ourselves a disservice.— Dave Lewis, Global Advisory CISO, Cisco Secure
