Protect Government Systems

Duo’s Trusted Access solution helps customers mitigate risks of data breaches and comply with NIST requirements.

Securing Government

To secure access to critical information systems and applications, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) requires federal agencies and contractors to use strong authentication controls.

Stronger Authentication Controls

We verify the identities of your federal employees with one of the most secure two-factor authentication methods, Duo Push. Duo’s Trusted Access solution can help you meet NIST 800-53/63/171 authentication requirements.

Duo’s two-factor authentication can also help law enforcement agencies meet Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) security policy standards for Advanced Authentication (AA), as noted by standard 5.6.2.2.

Complement PIV and CAC Access

For federal agencies that have invested in Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards and Common Access Cards (CAC), Duo’s solution works with your existing PIV and CAC solution to provide stronger access security.

Identify At-Risk Devices

In addition to verifying users’ identities, our solution checks the security health of every device authenticating into your environment, without using an agent.

Federal admins can use Duo to enforce stricter device access and application access policies, including blocking login requests based on location or anonymous networks, like Tor and VPN proxies.

Support Every Application

Duo’s Trusted Access solution ensures Every Application is protected by easily integrating with nearly every popular web, cloud, on-premises application, VPN, remote access gateway, and more.

With Duo’s single sign-on (SSO), your users can securely access all of their enterprise cloud applications by logging into a web portal once, saving time and increasing productivity. Duo’s SSO is available through Duo Access Gateway, your connector to the cloud.

Trusted Access

Duo's Trusted Access ensures only Trusted Users and Trusted Devices can access protected applications.

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target multiple areas - including credential theft and the exploitation of known software vulnerabilities affecting outdated software versions.

Secure Hosting in the AWS GovCloud

Duo offers government agencies the ability to be hosted in AWS (Amazon Web Services) GovCloud.

AWS GovCloud is an isolated AWS region designed to host sensitive data and regulated workloads in the cloud, helping customers support their U.S. government compliance requirements, including the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP).

AWS GovCloud is available to U.S. government agencies and organizations in government-regulated industries that meet GovCloud requirements for access.

General Services Administration (GSA)

Federal customers have the option to use the GSA to procure Duo Security’s Trusted Access solution. This provides federal customers with the flexibility to choose the best procurement vehicle for them. Learn more about buying cybersecurity services with the GSA.
