ProSight Duo Multi-Factor Authentication
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of services incorporates advanced technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems company, to offer two-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of modern zero-trust network security design. 2FA utilizes out-of-band identity confirmation to build an additional level of protection on top of traditional passwords. This protects against the most frequent causes of security breaches including phishing, brute-force password attacks, and credential theft.
Duo's single-touch Mobile Push application simplifies access security
Duo's push technology minimizes time and distraction by allowing users to confirm who they are simply by touching "Approve" on the authentication box on their own iOS or Android smartphone or wearable. This single-touch process eliminates the necessity to retrieve an email or text and copy a security code by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo family consists of three subscription-based services that progressively add features. ProSight Duo MFA allows organizations to implement Duo's two-factor authentication platform to guard all users while offering essential policy tools, centralized management, and rapid endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access provides all the features of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive authentication policies and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to differentiate company as distinct from 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 business to plan, implement and maintain a modern identity validation solution that provides the highest level of security without bogging down your users.
The overwhelming majority of security breaches exploit compromised passwords. Each service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo family of access security products can reduce your risky dependence on passwords by allowing two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you log into a registered online application and enter your password you are requested to verify your identity via a device that you have exclusive ownership of and that runs on a different ("out-of-band") channel. A broad range of devices can be utilized as this second form of ID validation such as an iOS or Android smartphone or watch, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can register multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security
After you confirm who you are via your validation device, you are permitted to run your app or access your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service enabled, you can simply tap "Approve" on your supported smartphone or watch. This improves the sign-on experience by making the authentication procedure nearly instantaneous. For traditional secondary devices, such as a hardware token, you can copy a temporary password.
