Traditional security relies on location-based trust. A zero trust model establishes trust for every access request — regardless of location. It enforces adaptive controls, and continuously verifies trust. Trust levels are dynamic and change to adapt to your evolving business. This approach can help prevent unauthorized access, contain breaches and reduce the risk of an attacker's lateral movement.
Duo ensures only the right users and secure devices can access applications, providing a foundation for a zero trust framework and securing the workforce. A comprehensive approach to securing your entire IT ecosystem requires zero trust for the workforce, workloads and workplace.
Start your zero trust journey with Duo's user and device trust.
Verify the identity of all users with secure access solutions such as two-factor authentication (2FA) before granting access to corporate applications and resources.
Gain visibility into every device used to access corporate applications, whether or not the device is corporate managed, without device management agents.
Inspect all devices used to access corporate applications and resources at the time of access to determine their security posture and trustworthiness. Devices that do not meet the minimum security and trust requirements set by your organization are denied access to protected applications.
Protect every application by defining policies that limit access only to users and devices that meet your organization's risk tolerance levels. Define, with fine granularity, which users and which devices can access what applications under which circumstances.
Grant users secure access to all protected applications through a frictionless secure single sign-on interface accessible from anywhere without a VPN. Protect all applications - legacy, on-premises and cloud-based.
