Duo Security Introduces Platform Edition - The Most Effective Way to Prevent Data Breaches

New secure access platform delivers the industry’s easiest solution to use, deploy and administer

Duo Security, a cloud-based access security provider protecting the world’s fastest-growing companies, today announces a new solution, Duo Platform Edition. Duo Platform secures access for all users, applications, and devices. Using patented technology trusted by Facebook, Twitter, Toyota, and many others, Duo Platform gives IT teams complete visibility and control.

Duo Security makes security easy and effective for both security professionals and end-users alike. In a fraction of the time required by other security solutions, IT teams can deploy Duo Platform to tens of thousands of users. With no training required, users get immediate protection from breaches, identity theft and account takeover.

“We believe the security industry has largely lost its way, pushing ineffective, costly systems that only add complexity and increase risk,” said Duo Security CEO Dug Song. “By keeping security implementation easy, we foster adoption. We offer users and organizations state-of-the-art protection that is the easiest to use, deploy and administer.”

With the rise of cloud, mobile and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), organizations face the added challenge of protecting what they don’t control. Data breaches happen in organizations every day and current products meant to thwart those breaches are built upon security tenets from decades past. With Duo Platform, Duo Security has built on its strong history in user authentication to create a new secure access platform that adds tools such as mobile device insight, security threat detection, and geofencing.

Duo Security’s flagship two-factor authentication solution addresses a $2.4 billion user authentication market.1 New capabilities unveiled today in Duo Platform now align the company to reach a larger segment of the $67 billion security market (expected to grow to $86 billion by 2016).2

Duo Platform combines effective solutions to help security teams gain visibility into user behavior, enabling organizations to create secure access policies that work for their users and their security teams. With Duo Platform, administrators can:

  • Create rules and policies that define who can access which applications under what conditions
  • Enforce security controls in real-time based on defined policies
  • Gain insight into the security profile of mobile devices used in the organization
  • Detect access-related security threats
  • Provision SaaS applications by leveraging current identity directories
  • Generate reports on access and authentication for better administration and audits
  • Actually block the breach

Duo Platform will be available next month for $6 per user per month. Visit for more information. RSA conference attendees will be able to see a live demo at the Duo Security booth (#2345). For more information on Duo Security, please visit and follow the company on Twitter at @duosec.
