Establish the Foundation

Security Control Assessments

Frameworks such as NIST, CIS/SANS 20 or ISO 27001 have separated themselves as the best practice frameworks for organizations to assess their practices to protect sensitive data, and provide secure access to critical assets. Duo offers solutions that provide organizations with the ability to adopt the best practices outlined in these frameworks by providing organizations the tools to verify users and establish access policies for systems while permitting access only from known devices and sources.

Data Privacy Guidelines and Regulations

Regardless if your organization is subject to regional data privacy regulations like GDPR, or PIPEDA, or if you need to adhere to state specific legislation such as CCPA, Duo helps you implement strong technical controls to protect access to backend systems that contain sensitive data that falls under the data privacy guidelines and regulations. With Duo, organizations can check the security hygiene of user devices before granting access and block users with risky devices. These controls protects sensitive resources by giving organizations the ability to enforce policies granting access only to verified users from identified sources and provides reports for audit purposes.

Protect Patient Data

Duo for HIPAA Compliant Security

Duo helps healthcare organizations meet HIPAA (Health Information Portability and Accountability Act) omnibus compliance requirements with easy to use authentication and access policies that don’t interfere with patient care. Duo’s ability to provide controls for the enforcement of security posture on the devices that are accessing sensitive patient health information with system reporting can help provide evidence of device encryption in the event that equipment is lost or stolen.

Duo for EPCS

The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) requires practitioners to use strong multi-factor authentication to access electronic prescription applications to sign prescriptions for controlled substances. That MFA solution must meet at least the criteria of FIPS 140–2 Security Level 1. Duo’s authentication methods were reviewed by Drummond Group, a DEA accredited security auditor, to meet EPCS requirements.

Protect Financial Data

Duo for PCI DSS Security

Duo can help you meet PCI DSS standards by protecting credentials with strong two-factor authentication, and limit access to cardholder data with strong access controls. Duo’s device insights provide visibility into the devices being used to connect to systems storing sensitive information and enables organizations to establish security policies that prevent unauthorized access. Learn more about Duo for retail.

Duo for Financial Services

Financial Services organizations – insurance providers, banks, brokerage firms and others - often have regulatory controls beyond PCI DSS that include things like FFIEC, NYDFS and NAIC, which require not just the implementation of strong authentication controls, but require access controls to ensure that only verified internal or external users can gain access to systems.

Duo’s Compliance

Due to the type of information that we handle and process we aren’t subject to all of the same compliance guidelines as many of our customers. However, as a security company, Duo uses those guidelines to focus on customer needs. To learn more about Duo’s compliance please see our Security and Reliability area.

Solutions for Every Security Use Case

Whether you need to secure unmanaged devices or access to the cloud, Duo’s trusted access is a solution for every need.

BYOD Security

Mixing personal devices and work data can be a security nightmare, as IT has no visibility into these devices and much less control than ever, weakening the overall security profile of a company.

Regain control and secure your BYOD environment with Duo’s Unified Endpoint Visibility and device access policies to block login attempts from risky devices based on location, network type, software version and more.

Endpoint Security

Endpoint security used to require installing an agent on your users’ devices. But they prove ineffective for security since new threats emerge faster than agents can be updated.

Duo provides a streamlined solution to get insight into the security health of your users’ devices and the ability to enforce device access policies - all without the use of the agent.

Learn About Device Access Policies

Mobile Security

Living in a mobile-first world means there’s an app for every need - and a ton of confidential data accessible online. Organizations need to ensure both devices and data are secure.

Duo gives you insight into the security health of your mobile devices and the mobile security controls you need to strengthen your security profile, without installing an agent.
