ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of services incorporates industry-leading access security technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to deliver two-factor authentication services. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust network security design. 2FA utilizes separate channel ID confirmation to build a second layer of protection beyond just passwords. 2FA blocks the most common sources of security breaches including phishing, social engineering, and credential theft.
Duo's one-tap Mobile Push application simplifies access security
Duo's push technology minimizes time and distraction by allowing users to verify their identity simply by touching "Approve" on the authentication box on their own smartphone or wearable. This one-tap process does away with the necessity to open an email or text message and transcribe a passcode manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite includes three subscription services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to deploy Duo's 2FA technology to guard all apps while offering basic access controls, unified management, and fast provisioning. ProSight Duo Access provides all the features of ProSight Duo MFA and adds adaptive ID validation controls and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify company as distinct from personal endpoints, block untrusted devices, and give users secure and transparent access to your internal apps. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your business to plan, implement and manage an advanced ID authentication system that delivers top-level access security without disrupting your users.
80% of cybersecurity break-ins involve compromised passwords. Every service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of access security products can eliminate your risky dependence on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA implemented, when you sign into a secured online account and provide your password you are asked to confirm your identity via a device that you have sole ownership of and that runs on a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad assortment of devices can be used as this additional form of ID validation including an iOS or Android smartphone or watch, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can enroll several different verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security
Once you verify who you are via your validation device, you are allowed 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 tap "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This streamlines the sign-on experience by making the authentication process virtually immediate. For traditional secondary units, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a short-term passcode.
