ProSight Duo Identity Verification
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of managed services integrates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to deliver two-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust network security design. 2FA utilizes separate channel ID confirmation to provide a second layer of protection beyond traditional passwords. This guards against the most common causes of security breaches like phishing, social engineering, and credential theft.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push application simplifies authentication
Duo's push technology saves time and distraction by permitting users to confirm their identity just by touching "Approve" on the validation box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or wearable. This single-tap process eliminates the need to open an email or text and copy a passcode by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo family consists of three subscription services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication platform to guard all users while providing essential policy tools, centralized management, and rapid provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive ID validation policies and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to identify corporate as opposed to personal endpoints, deny access to untrusted endpoints, and give users safe and transparent access to your inside applications. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your company to design, deploy and maintain an advanced identity validation system that provides the highest level of security without disrupting your users.
Most security breaches involve compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo family of identity validation products can eliminate your risky dependence on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA implemented, when you log into a protected online application and provide your correct password you are asked to verify your identity via a device that you have exclusive ownership of and that runs on a separate ("out-of-band") channel. A wide selection of devices can be utilized as your second means of authentication including a smartphone or wearable, a token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo 2FA provides an extra level of security
After you confirm who you are using your out-of-band device, you are allowed to use your app or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service activated, you can simply touch "Approve" on your supported smartphone or smart watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure nearly instantaneous. For other authentication devices, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a temporary passcode.
