4Cambridge add Duo 2FA to their security products portfolio

20/11/2017 - 4Cambridge News

4Cambridge have partnered with Duo to provide a simple, secure two-factor authentication (2FA) solution for businesses.

Two-factor authentication strengthens access security by requiring two methods (also referred to as factors) 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.

Increased protection

The increased demand for flexible working has lead to a huge growth in remote access systems, with businesses allowing staff to connect to office networks from home and on the road.  2FA protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks and secures your logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.  2FA for remote access is also increasingly being required or recommended by various security standards, including PCI DSS.

Duo Two-Factor Authentication
Duo 2FA integrates with most remote access solutions, including remote desktop/terminal server (RDP), Outlook Web Access (OWA), and Citrix XenApp.  The key to organisations successfully implementing 2FA is getting their staff on board.  Using a free Duo app on their mobile phones removes the need for separate key fobs or number generators, making it simple to set up and use.  Users quickly verify their identity by approving push notifications before accessing applications.
