Duo Security Announces General Availability of Duo Platform Edition
A powerful new enterprise solution to secure access for all users, applications, and devices
Duo Security, a cloud-based access security provider protecting the world’s largest and fastest-growing companies, today announced general availability of Duo Platform Edition. Duo delivers an enterprise security solution protecting customers like Facebook, Toyota and Twitter from data breaches. Duo Platform makes it easy for administrators to secure access for all users, applications, and devices whether they are on premise or remote.
Duo announced last week that the company’s two-factor solution now works on Apple Watch, bringing consumer security products into the hands of enterprise. “It’s time to end the suffering for the user and offer better security for any organization.” said Duo Security CEO Dug Song. “We’re building on our trusted easy and effective two-factor authentication solution with Duo Platform to give our customers critical new functionality while keeping security easy and painless for the end-user. ”
More than 95 percent of security breaches involve malicious attackers stealing credentials through phishing attacks on the end-user in order to gain access to company data.1 Two-factor authentication prevents these breaches from happening in the first place, protecting organizations against social engineering and phishing attempts on their employees and end-users.
Duo’s core technology was built on making two-factor authentication easy to foster adoption by end-users, with the understanding that if employees find security to be a disruption they won’t use it -- regardless of how secure that technology might be. Duo’s two-factor solutions are easy and painless for the end-user. It’s a solution proven in more than 6,000 customer deployments.
With Duo Platform Edition, organizations can achieve security goals such as:
● Block users from China and Russia (or any country where an organization does not have employees) to an enterprise application;
● Prevent users from anonymous networks such as Tor from accessing corporate data;
● Identify jail-broken/rooted mobile phones and create policies to revoke access from these vulnerable devices;
● Create an inventory of all devices (Macs, PCs, smartphones, etc.) that employees are using to access corporate applications.
Duo Platform is available starting today for $6 per user per month. Learn more at duosecurity.com/platform. To follow Duo Security news and events, follow the company on Twitter @duosec.
