ProSight Duo Identity Verification
Progent's ProSight Duo family of services integrates industry-leading access security technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to offer multi-factor authentication services. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of zero-trust network security strategy. 2FA utilizes separate channel identity confirmation to build a second layer of protection on top of just passwords. 2FA protects against the most frequent sources of cybersecurity breaches including phishing, social engineering, and stolen credentials.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push app streamlines access security
Duo's Push App minimizes time and hassle by allowing users to confirm who they are simply by tapping "Approve" on the authentication box on their personal smartphone or wearable. This one-touch procedure eliminates the need to open an email or text message and transcribe a security code by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo line includes three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to implement Duo's two-factor authentication platform to protect all users while offering essential access tools, centralized management, and fast endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive ID validation controls and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to differentiate corporate as distinct from personal endpoints, deny access to suspect endpoints, and give users safe and transparent access to internal apps. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your organization to design, implement and manage an advanced ID authentication solution that delivers top-level security without bogging down your users.
80% of security breaches involve compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo line of identity validation solutions can eliminate your risky reliance on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA implemented, when you sign into a registered online account and provide your correct password you are asked to confirm who you are by means of a device which you have exclusive possession of and that utilizes a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad selection of devices can be used as your second form of authentication including a smartphone or wearable, a token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll several different authentication devices.
ProSight Duo 2FA provides an extra level of security
After you confirm who you are via your out-of-band device, you are allowed to run your application or utilize your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature activated, you can simply tap "Approve" on your iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This streamlines the sign-on experience by making the authentication procedure virtually immediate. For other secondary devices, such as a token, you can copy a short-term passcode.
