ProSight Duo Multi-Factor Authentication
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of managed services integrates advanced technology from Duo, a Cisco subsidiary, to deliver two-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication is one of the foundations of zero-trust network security strategy. 2FA uses separate channel identity confirmation to provide a second layer of security beyond traditional passwords. This protects against the most common sources of cybersecurity breaches like phishing, brute-force password attacks, and stolen credentials.
Duo's one-tap Mobile Push application simplifies authentication
Duo's push technology saves time and hassle by allowing users to verify their identity simply by touching "Approve" on the authentication box on their own smartphone or wearable. This one-touch procedure eliminates the need to open an email or text message and copy a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo line includes three subscription services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to implement Duo's 2FA platform to protect all apps while offering basic access tools, unified management, and fast provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive authentication policies and extensive endpoint health checking. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to differentiate corporate as distinct from personal devices, block suspect endpoints, and give users secure and transparent access to your inside apps. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your company to plan, deploy and maintain a modern identity validation solution that delivers the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
80% of security break-ins involve compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of identity validation solutions can eliminate your risky dependence on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a secured online account and enter your password you are asked to verify your identity by means of a device which you have exclusive possession of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") channel. A broad range of devices can be utilized as your additional means of authentication such as a smartphone or wearable, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an additional level of security
After you confirm who you are via your validation device, you are permitted to run your app or utilize your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature enabled, you can simply touch "Approve" on your supported smartphone or watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure virtually instantaneous. For traditional secondary devices, such as a token, you can copy a temporary password.
