ProSight Duo Access Security
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of managed services integrates advanced technology from Duo, a Cisco Systems subsidiary, to offer two-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the pillars of zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses different-band identity verification to provide a second level of security on top of traditional passwords. This blocks the most frequent sources of cybersecurity breaches like phishing, brute-force password attacks, and credential theft.
Duo's single-touch Mobile Push application streamlines access security
Duo's Push App minimizes time and distraction by allowing users to confirm their identity simply by pressing "Approve" on the validation box on their personal smartphone or watch. This one-touch procedure eliminates the necessity to retrieve an email or text and copy a security code by hand.
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog consists of three subscription services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA permits you to implement Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) service to guard all apps while providing essential policy controls, centralized management, and fast endpoint provisioning. ProSight Duo Access supports all the capabilities of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive authentication controls and endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond brings the ability to differentiate corporate as distinct from personal devices, deny access to untrusted endpoints, and allow users secure and seamless access to your internal applications. Progent is a Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your organization to design, implement and manage a modern identity authentication solution that provides the highest level of security without disrupting your users.
The vast majority of security break-ins involve compromised passwords. Every managed service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo line of access security solutions can eliminate your sole reliance on password protection by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you sign into a secured online application and provide your password you are asked to confirm who you are via a device that you have sole ownership of and that uses a separate ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of devices can be used as your additional means of ID validation including a smartphone or wearable, a hardware token, a landline phone, etc. You can enroll multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication provides an extra layer of security
After you verify your identity using your out-of-band device, you are allowed to use your application or utilize 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 authentication procedure virtually immediate. For traditional authentication devices, such as a token, you can copy a short-term passcode.
