ProSight Duo Identity Verification and Management Services
Progent's ProSight Duo family of managed services incorporates industry-leading technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to deliver two-factor authentication solutions. Two-factor authentication (2FA) is one of the foundations of modern zero-trust cybersecurity design. 2FA uses out-of-band identity validation to provide a second layer of protection beyond just passwords. This protects against the most common causes of cybersecurity breaches such as phishing, social engineering, brute-force password attacks, and stolen credentials.
Duo's single-tap Mobile Push app simplifies identity validation
Duo's push technology saves time and hassle by allowing users to verify their identity simply by tapping "Approve" on the authentication prompt on their personal smart phone or watch. This one-tap process eliminates the need to open an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo suite consists of three subscription-based security services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA allows you to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) service to protect all users while providing essential access controls, advanced management, and rapid provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the features of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive authentication policies and extensive endpoint health monitoring. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify corporate as distinct from personal devices, block untrusted devices, and give users secure and seamless access to your internal applications. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help you design, deploy and manage a modern identity validation solution that provides the highest level of security without bogging down your users.
80% of security breaches involve compromised passwords. All service offerings in Progent's ProSight Duo line of access security products can do away with your sole reliance on passwords by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you log into a protected online account and enter your password you are asked to verify your identity via a device that only you possess and that uses a different ("out-of-band") network channel. A broad range of devices can be used as a second form of authentication including a smart phone or watch, a hardware or software token, a landline phone, etc. You can register multiple verification devices.
ProSight Duo two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security
Once you confirm your identity using your out-of-band device, you are permitted to run your application or access your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification enabled, you can simply press "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This streamlines the login experience by making the authentication process virtually instantaneous. For other secondary devices, such as a hardware token, you can transcribe a temporary passcode.
