Protecting Client Data

In the legal field, you’re responsible for keeping client data confidential and safeguarding attorney-client privilege. Let Duo handle your security, so you can focus on your clients and law firm.

Secure Access to Data

Duo’s trusted access solution helps you ensure the security of your clients’ confidential data by verifying your users’ identities and checking device security health before granting them access to your applications.

The American Bar Association dictates that lawyers shall not reveal client information unless given consent in the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, rule 1.6(a).

Prevent Client Data Disclosure

Additionally, 1.6(c) provides that: "A lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to prevent the inadvertent or unauthorized disclosure of, or unauthorized access to, [client information]."

Duo helps you meet these rules by ensuring unauthorized users can’t get access to your accounts or client data.

Trusted Users

To ensure your users are really who they say they are, Duo’s two-factor authentication solution provides another layer of security to your logins that verifies their identities before they access your email and other applications.

The Duo Mobile app allows your users to quickly confirm their identity by approving a push notification on their smartphones.

Trusted Devices

In addition to verifying their identities, Duo’s trusted access solution ensures Trusted Devices by checking the security health of their phones, tablets, laptops and more before they’re granted access.

The security health of devices includes how up-to-date their software is and whether or not security features are enabled, such as screen lock, fingerprint ID or jailbroken and rooted status.

Devices with outdated software are at greater risk of getting compromised via known vulnerabilities. Duo lets you block any risky devices, and enables users to update right away.

Protect Every Application

Duo’s trusted access platform supports all popular applications, including VPNs, remote access gateways, on-premises and cloud-based applications and more. Duo also integrates to protect PeopleSoft, an Oracle application used in higher education for a portal solution.

We ensure every application is protected with application-specific access controls and secure single sign-on (SSO), a simple way to access your cloud applications.

Trusted Access

Duo's solution ensures only trusted users and trusted devices can access every application.

This complete security solution, trusted access, prevents modern attackers that often target multiple areas - including credential theft and the exploitation of known software vulnerabilities affecting outdated software versions.
