Identity and Access Management
With an alarming increase in the instances of Internet crimes and digital frauds, gaining access to users personal and financial details has become increasingly easy for cyber-criminals. Two-Factor Authentication, also known as 2FA, is an extra layer of security that not only requires a username and password but also an additional security measure such as
- Code delivered via text or mobile app
- USB security key
- Push (or pop-up) notification on your Smartphone
- Phone Callbacks
2FA protects against phishing, social engineering, and password brute force attacks and secures the login from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials. Without any access to the physical device, remote attacks can be rendered unsuccessful, with attackers unable to gain unauthorized access to the users accounts.
Duo's 2FA solution only requires users to carry one device; their Smartphone with Duo Mobile app installed on it or a U2F key to approve authentication requests.
