New Duo Security Program Empowers Managed Service Providers to Quickly and Easily Secure Customers
Demand for outsourced security services grows amid shift to cloud and hybrid environments
ANN ARBOR, MICH. - April 27, 2017 - Cloud-based Trusted Access provider Duo Security today announced the launch of Duo Managed Service Provider (MSP), a program to give MSPs the tools to better protect their customers from data breaches in a rapidly changing world of cloud applications and mobile devices. Duo helps ensure only trusted users and devices have access to sensitive on-premises or cloud-based business applications.
Duo’s Managed Service Provider program comes to market as deployment, integration and product management difficulties continue to hamper MSPs ability to provide important security solutions, such as multi-factor authentication, to their customers.
“Two factor authentication is one of the simple yet vital tools Duo offers to help MSPs make sure their customers are properly protected,” said Matt Smith, Duo Vice President of Worldwide Channels. “One of the most common challenges we hear from the MSP community today is the requirement to deliver more with less. MSPs don’t have time to deal with complicated deployments or an overwhelming amount of help desk requests. With Duo’s services, they won’t have to.”
With Duo’s tailored program, MSPs will be able to:
Easily implement and manage the company’s Trusted Access product suite, including Duo’s patented Push two-factor authentication technology across their growing customer base, with no physical devices to to deploy.
Utilize pay-as-you-go pricing and avoid complex pricing tiers, making it easy for MSPs to offer customers flexibility without assuming risk - a pricing structure opposite conventional security vendors.
Improve their customers’ endpoint security by ensuring devices are up-to-date and providing the ability to monitor and set access policies.
Quickly roll out Duo in their customers’ environments within minutes with more than 200 native application integrations.
“Traditional security products make it difficult and costly for MSPs to have visibility and set policies across all their customers’ endpoints,” said Smith. “We strive to make it fast and simple for MSPs to protect their customers and their end users.”
“Duo’s ease of use and implementation, combined with providing trusted access for users, are the biggest takeaways we’ve seen since we deployed it across our customer base,” said Mark Coriaty, Chief Strategy Officer, Eze Castle Integration. “Our customers and their end users are able to quickly and securely access the applications they need without hampering their productivity. The product adds another essential layer of protection that is demanded by our clients in today’s security-focused environment.”
“The ease and efficiency of deploying Duo's two-factor authentication to our customers is in sharp contrast to the hassles we have experienced with other vendors,“ said Alexa Kruse, Director of Network and Security Operations Center at Cal Net Technology Group. "Our customers and their end users have appreciated Duo's ease of use since we implemented it."
