ProSight Duo Identity Verification
Progent's ProSight Duo line of services integrates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to offer two-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the foundations of modern zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses separate channel ID confirmation to provide an additional layer of protection beyond just passwords. This blocks the most frequent causes of security breaches like phishing, social engineering, and credential theft.
Duo's one-touch Mobile Push app streamlines access security
Duo's Push App minimizes time and hassle by permitting users to confirm their identity simply by tapping "Approve" on the authentication prompt on their own smartphone or watch. This one-touch process does away with the necessity to retrieve an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite includes three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA permits you to implement Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) technology to protect all applications while offering basic access controls, centralized management, and rapid provisioning. ProSight Duo Access provides all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive authentication policies and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to differentiate company as opposed to personal devices, deny access to untrusted devices, and allow users secure and seamless access to your inside apps. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your business to plan, deploy and maintain a modern ID authentication system that delivers top-level security without disrupting your users.
80% of security breaches exploit compromised passwords. Every service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo family of identity validation solutions can eliminate your risky reliance on password protection by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a registered online account and provide your correct password you are requested to confirm your identity via a device that you have exclusive ownership of and that utilizes a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of devices can be utilized as this second form of ID validation such as a smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll several different validation devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an additional layer 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 connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service activated, you can simply touch "Approve" on your supported smartphone or smart watch. This improves the login experience by making the verification process nearly instantaneous. For other secondary devices, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a temporary passcode.
