ProSight Duo Multi-Factor Authentication
Progent's ProSight Duo line of services incorporates industry-leading technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems subsidiary, to deliver multi-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the foundations of modern zero-trust network security strategy. 2FA uses different-band ID confirmation to provide an additional layer of security beyond traditional passwords. This guards against the most frequent sources of security breaches such as phishing, brute-force password attacks, and credential theft.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push application streamlines authentication
Duo's push technology saves time and hassle by permitting users to verify who they are simply by pressing "Approve" on the authentication prompt on their personal smartphone or wearable. This one-touch process eliminates the need to retrieve an email or text message and copy a security code by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo line consists of three subscription-based services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) platform to guard all apps while offering basic policy controls, unified management, and rapid provisioning. ProSight Duo Access provides all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive ID validation controls and extensive endpoint health checking. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to differentiate company as opposed to personal endpoints, deny access to untrusted endpoints, and give users safe and transparent access to your inside applications. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your organization to plan, deploy and maintain a modern ID validation solution that provides the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
The vast majority of cybersecurity break-ins involve compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo line of identity validation products can reduce your dangerous reliance on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a registered online account and provide your password you are requested to verify who you are by means of a device that you have sole possession of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") channel. A wide assortment of devices can be utilized as your additional form of authentication such as an iOS or Android smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll multiple validation devices.
ProSight Duo 2FA provides an extra level of security
After you verify who you are using your out-of-band device, you are allowed to use your app or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature enabled, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android smartphone or smart watch. This improves the login experience by making the authentication procedure nearly instantaneous. For other authentication devices, such as a token, you can copy a temporary password.
