ProSight Duo Multi-Factor Authentication
Progent's ProSight Duo suite of services incorporates advanced access security technology from Duo, a Cisco company, to offer multi-factor ID validation solutions. Two-factor authentication is one of the pillars of zero-trust network security design. 2FA uses out-of-band ID verification to provide an additional level of security on top of traditional passwords. 2FA guards against the most common sources of cybersecurity break-ins like phishing, brute-force password attacks, and credential theft.
Duo's one-tap Mobile Push application streamlines identity validation
Duo's push technology minimizes time and hassle by allowing users to confirm their identity simply by tapping "Approve" on the authentication box on their own smartphone or wearable. This single-touch process does away with the need to retrieve an email or text message and transcribe a security code manually.
Progent's ProSight Duo catalog includes three subscription services that build on one another. ProSight Duo MFA allows you to deploy Duo's two-factor authentication (2FA) service to protect all apps while offering basic access tools, unified management, and fast provisioning. ProSight Duo Access includes all the features of ProSight Duo MFA plus adaptive authentication controls and endpoint health checking. ProSight Duo Beyond adds the ability to identify company as distinct from personal endpoints, deny access to suspect endpoints, and allow users secure and transparent access to your inside apps. Progent is a certified Duo Managed Service Provider and can help your company to plan, implement and maintain a modern identity authentication solution that provides the highest level of access security without disrupting your users.
80% of cybersecurity break-ins involve compromised passwords. Every managed service offering in Progent's ProSight Duo catalog of identity validation products can reduce your risky reliance on password protection by supporting two-factor authentication. With 2FA activated, when you log into a registered online account and provide your password you are requested to confirm your identity via a device which you have exclusive ownership of and that runs on a different ("out-of-band") channel. A broad range of devices can be used as your additional form of authentication such as a smartphone or watch, a token, a landline telephone, etc. You can register multiple authentication devices.
ProSight Duo 2FA provides an additional level of security
Once you confirm your identity via your out-of-band device, you are permitted to run your app or utilize your VPN or remote desktop service. With the Duo Mobile app's push notification service enabled, you can simply touch "Approve" on your iOS or Android phone or smart watch. This streamlines the sign-on experience by making the verification procedure virtually immediate. For other authentication devices, such as a hardware token, you can copy a temporary password.
