Duo are leading the way in ‘passwordless’ technology with two-factor authentication technology solutions, hoping to offer simpler, sharper security possibilities. They are now incorporating Microsoft Azure Active Directory Conditional Access policies with two-factor authentication to Azure Active Directory logons, complete with inline self-service enrolment and Duo Prompt.
This allows customers the ability to set policies via Microsoft Azure Active Directory (AD) Conditional Access (CA). These policies ensure that users can only gain access when the request satisfies certain requirements.
So, what requirements could you set? The options range from geolocation of the access device to user group membership, or successful multifactor authentication. After you have set up your first policy, you can create multiple Duo Conditional Access policies with unique Duo policy settings to apply to different Azure applications or users.
In this way, Duo supports businesses to utilise the Microsoft Azure Active Directory application and benefit from strong secondary authentication to Azure Active Directory logons. Additionally, Duo’s granular access policies and controls complement and expand the access controls in Azure.
Most businesses today require strong secondary authentication for any logins. The rise in cybercrime and an emphasis on data protection has meant more and more companies are seeking two-factor authentication, like that offered by Duo.
