ANN ARBOR, Mich., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Duo Security, a cloud-based Trusted Access provider protecting the world's largest and fastest-growing companies, today announced that it has combined its flagship two-factor authentication and device insight with single sign-on (SSO) capabilities. With this trusted access platform, organizations can ensure that users are who they say they are, that their devices are secure enough to access business applications and networks and where they're logging in from - all with one single login from their employees and contractors.
With a strong focus on ease of use to foster adoption of security solutions, Duo introduces SSO functionality that allows users to log in once into a simple launchpad that allows them to securely access all of their business cloud applications without requiring additional or different credentials. Together, these features allow businesses to quickly and easily add strong layers of security with just a simple click or login from their employees. With Duo's SSO, for the first time IT and security teams can create custom, stricter access policies for each cloud application, based on the type of user and the security health of unmanaged devices.
Duo's SSO offering is part of its larger trusted access offering: to ensure your users are who they say they are, that the devices they are logging in from are appropriately updated and secure, and that they are securely logging into the business applications they need to get their jobs done efficiently, with minimal friction.
In addition to this news, Duo also announced new integrations to help organizations move securely to the Microsoft cloud (http://duo.sc/msftcloudpr) offering this week, particularly Outlook Web Access and Microsoft Office 365. These plus hundreds of other applications such as Dropbox, Salesforce, Slack, and many others are now accessible and protected through Duo SSO.
