ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo family of services integrates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to offer multi-factor authentication services. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA utilizes separate channel ID confirmation to build an additional layer of security on top of traditional passwords. This protects against the most common sources of security break-ins like phishing, social engineering, and stolen credentials.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push application streamlines authentication
Duo's Push App saves time and distraction by allowing users to verify who they are simply by pressing "Approve" on the authentication box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or watch. This single-touch procedure eliminates the necessity to open an email or text and copy a passcode manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite includes three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA permits organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) service to guard all users while providing essential access tools, unified management, and fast endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes 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 company as distinct from personal devices, block untrusted endpoints, and give users secure and transparent access to internal applications. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can assist your business to plan, implement and maintain an advanced ID validation system that delivers the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
The overwhelming majority of cybersecurity breaches involve compromised passwords. Each managed service plan 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 protected online account and provide your password you are requested to confirm your identity by means of a device which you have sole possession of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad selection of devices can be utilized as your additional means of ID validation including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll multiple verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra level of security
After you confirm your identity via your validation device, you are allowed to run your app or utilize your VPN or remote desktop connection. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification feature activated, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This streamlines the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure nearly instantaneous. For traditional authentication devices, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a temporary password.
