ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo family of services incorporates industry-leading access security technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to offer two-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses out-of-band identity verification to build a second level of security beyond traditional passwords. This protects against the most frequent sources of cybersecurity breaches such as phishing, brute-force password attacks, and stolen credentials.
Duo's one-tap Mobile Push app streamlines access security
Duo's Push App saves time and hassle by permitting users to confirm who they are just by pressing "Approve" on the validation box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This one-touch process does away with the necessity to open an email or text and transcribe a passcode by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo line includes three subscription services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to deploy Duo's 2FA platform to protect all applications while offering essential access tools, unified management, and rapid endpoint 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, block untrusted endpoints, and give users safe and transparent access to your internal apps. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help you to design, deploy and maintain an advanced ID validation solution that delivers the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
Most cybersecurity break-ins exploit compromised passwords. Every service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo line of access security solutions can reduce your sole reliance on password protection by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a protected online account and provide your correct password you are asked to confirm your identity by means of a device that you have sole ownership of and that runs on a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of devices can be used as your additional form of authentication including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can register several different verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security
After you confirm who you are via your validation device, you are allowed to use your application or access your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service activated, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure virtually instantaneous. For traditional secondary devices, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a temporary password.
