Fordham University: Lessons Learned from Duo Deployment

In this webinar, you will hear:

  • Why Fordham selected Duo for two-factor and endpoint security
  • What lessons Fordham’s team learned during their testing and deployment
  • How users responded, and tips to improve user buy-in

A 2017 survey of EDUCAUSE members found that less than ⅓ of business-critical applications in higher education are protected with multi-factor authentication*. That’s no surprise: security teams at colleges and universities face a lot of hurdles when trying to secure access, including limited budget availability and a large user base that may be resistant to any change in their workflow. To maintain strong security hygiene and keep users on your side, finding the right tools is essential.

Are you looking for an effective access security strategy that helps keep devices up-to-date, provides agent-less visibility on device health, and protects all your critical data? Join us for a conversation with Mathew Tams from Fordham University, as he covers what Fordham needed in an authentication solution, why they chose Duo Security, and what they learned through their deployment.
