ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo line of managed services incorporates industry-leading technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to offer multi-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the foundations of modern zero-trust network security strategy. 2FA uses separate channel ID confirmation to provide a second layer of protection on top of traditional passwords. This blocks the most frequent sources of security break-ins such as phishing, social engineering, and credential theft.
Duo's single-touch Mobile Push app simplifies authentication
Duo's Push App minimizes time and distraction by allowing users to verify their identity just by pressing "Approve" on the validation prompt on their personal smartphone or watch. This one-touch process eliminates the need to open an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite includes three subscription-based services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA allows you to implement Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) platform to protect all applications while offering essential policy tools, centralized management, and rapid endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive ID validation controls and endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify corporate as opposed to personal devices, deny access to suspect endpoints, and give users safe and transparent access to inside apps. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your company to plan, deploy and maintain an advanced ID authentication system that delivers the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
The vast majority of cybersecurity breaches involve compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of access security products can reduce your risky dependence on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you log into a secured online account and provide your password you are requested to confirm who you are via a device that you have sole possession of and that runs on a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad selection of devices can be used as your additional means of authentication including an iOS or Android smartphone or watch, a token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra level of security
After you verify your identity via your out-of-band device, you are permitted to run your application or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature activated, you can simply touch "Approve" on your iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This streamlines the login experience by making the authentication procedure nearly immediate. For other secondary units, such as a token, you can transcribe a short-term password.
