Duo Security is now part of Cisco

Cisco Employee

According to the Verizon 2018 Data Breach Investigations Report, 81% of hacking-related incidents leverage stolen or weak passwords. When your workforce requires access to business-critical information residing on your corporate network and cloud, a VPN connectivity with the highest level of security is a mandate.

If an attacker steals employee’s VPN credentials and gains access to your network, they can masquerade as employees, obtain sensitive information, and disrupt business operations. Duo Multifactor Authentication (MFA) adds another layer of defense and makes breaches from stolen credentials a thing of the past. Duo’s MFA provides secure remote access to internal corporate applications using Cisco’s AnyConnect VPN on Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA) or Firepower Threat Defense (FTD).

Duo’s multi-factor authentication is easy to use and deploy, and it offers the convenience of several authentication methods based on your specific use case such as Duo Push, which is the most secure and user-friendly.

Duo is now natively integrated with Cisco AnyConnect and Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW). Here are five reasons why you should secure your VPN with Duo MFA to ensure trusted access:

  • Protect against credential theft
  • Achieve regulatory compliance
  • Enable consistent access security for on-premises and cloud apps
  • Gain visibility into all devices
  • Enforce granular access security policies

Cisco Duo, natively integrated with AnyConnect and NGFW, how is cisco proposing licensing and would it still be user based? Is there any change in that respect?
