Secure application access for students, faculty and staff with Duo’s Unified Access Security solution.
The cloud and mobility have changed academic culture. Students, faculty and staff need access to data from anywhere at any time and from any device they choose. This deperimeterization coupled with decentralization of IT creates a new set of security challenges that educational institutions must meet.
It’s critical to protect access to applications and data. And more than 300 educational institutions trust Duo to provide seamless and secure access to the resources and applications they need to connect students and staff to information.
Duo verifies user identities with two-factor authentication and checks the security health of their devices before granting access to Institution’s applications and intranet. This ensures only users and devices that are trusted can access protected data.
Give students and staff frictionless secure access with various options for two-factor authentication (2FA) methods based on their preference – from push notifications to phone callbacks. This ensures all logins are seamless and intuitive.
Get insight into risky devices accessing to your network. Duo checks every device, including user-owned, as it logs in to ensure it’s running the latest software and security features are enabled. Block risky devices or notify users to update.
Duo’s Unified Access Security supports all popular cloud and on-premises applications, including Oracle PeopleSoft, which institutions use in portals. Duo’s single sign-on (SSO) gives users access to all apps from a single web interface for easy access.
Institutions showed a 96% reduction in compromised accounts after deploying Duo across their student populations. And Duo offers phishing campaigns to raise awareness and ensure students, faculty and staff don’t fall victim to phishing attacks.
Along with reducing the risk of data loss and protecting applications and data, Duo also helps educational institutions realize cost savings by reducing help desk call volume and support hours.
“After Duo was added, no more accounts were compromised.”
“University of York agrees that Duo Security is easy to get up and running for someone who is just getting started with two factor.”
“The flexibility of the technology both in terms of what it can integrate with as well as how our community can use it was key in our adoption of Duo as a partner in our multi-factor authentication strategy.”
