Traditional MFA vs Modern MFA Solution = Change Required

Wednesday, December 08 | 11:00am EST

In this session, you will learn how Duo is helping Federal agencies:

  • Authenticate both the user and the device (device trust)
  • Comply with the latest executive order on zero trust security
  • Provide 100% visibility into all devices across all networks/applications
  • React and change to new security threats quickly

"Zero trust doesn’t end with MFA. In order to incorporate the ‘real-time information from multiple sources’ that President Biden addressed in his cybersecurity executive order this year, we need a fully integrated technology and security stack, device health visibility with management, and policies to enforce access and incident response actions. Attention must be given to employees, devices, applications and microservices that have their own identities and permissions.” — Helen Patton, Advisory CISO

Register today to join Tamara Elliott, Bart Green and Jim Salmonson on December 8 as they discuss how a modern, user-friendly approach to secure access allows government agencies to reduce risk, comply with the latest executive guidance on zero trust security, and demonstrate the ability to reach to change. You’ll also get an overview of Duo’s FedRAMP Authorized, FIPS-compliant product edition. With strong, cloud-based authentication and device visibility, it’s tailored to meet the strict security requirements of federal agencies and public sector organizations, including standards put forth by the May 2021 executive order.
