What is Duo Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

Strengthen your cyber security by protecting your applications and systems with two-factor authentication (2FA). It's the fastest, simplest and most effective way to verify that your users are who they say they are.

What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)?

Two-factor authentication (2FA) is a multi-factor authentication (MFA) that strengthens access security to your technology systems by requiring two methods to verify your identity. These factors can include something you know - like a username and password - plus something you have - like a smartphone app - to approve authentication requests and complete a secure login.

2FA protects against phishing scams, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your technology logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.

2FA Made Easy With Duo

We know the most effective security solution is one people actually use. Duo’s 2FA solution only requires one device, a smartphone with the Duo Mobile app installed on it. Duo Mobile is available for both iPhone and Android, as well as wearables like the Apple Watch.

With support for many authentication methods, logging in is fast and easy with Duo Mobile. Use Duo Push or U2F as your second factor because they're most secure and protect against man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks, but with Duo's flexibility and customizability, you'll be able to use the adaptive authentication method that meets the needs of your organization.

Easy, Effective and Secure

Duo integrates to protect every point of access, from on-premises, to web-based, to cloud-based applications. Deployment is quick and easy and managing your security is a breeze. Secure logins to your computer, Remote Desktop (RDP), VPN, servers, and applications such as Office 365/Google WorkSpace, CRM and other cloud apps.

Zero Trust Made Simple

Put your organization into zero trust by securing your data, systems and people while working from anywhere on any device. The simple, all-in-one platform lets you verify user identities, assess and act on the health of devices, set adaptive access policies, and protect users' productivity with modern remote access and SSO capabilities.

Human Firewall

Give your people the means to create a human firewall, the most effective security approach. Secure your system using a human process by providing the user complete control of access to their data.
