What is Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)? MFA is a security access management solution that verifies a user's identity at login with two or more verification factors. By providing a layer of protection to a user or company’s data, MFA helps to prevent malware, phishing, and ransomware attacks. With Cisco Duo, MFA is easier than ever to integrate, implement, and use.
Duo's MFA product combines multiple factors of authentication to provide robust security that is flexible for users but rigid against threat. The interface provides a fast, non-disruptive and simple authentication experience, helping users focus their time on what matters most.
Duo is highly scalable and can be easily integrated with most major apps and custom applications, enabling a secure access solution that can be implemented with minimal IT involvement.
Duo multi-factor authentication offers a range of powerful authentication methods to choose from and combine, such as biometrics, tokens, passcodes, the Duo Push mobile app, and more.
Implementing MFA is quick and easy for users with Duo's MFA mobile app. By streamlining the authentication process with easy verification from mobile devices, the Duo app not only reduces your total cost of ownership but also helps users adopt MFA with ease.
Not every MFA solution is the same. Some vendors only provide the bare minimum needed to meet compliance requirements — and include lots of hidden costs required for deployment, operation, and maintenance. Plus, many traditional solutions are clunky and error-prone, and require extensive user training and support.
