By CIOReview | Friday, May 29, 2015

ANN ARBOUR, MI: Duo Security, a cloud based access security provider is generalizing its Duo platform’s two-factor authentication for end-users of any organization making them immune from credential theft. Till now Duo has delivered its services to organizations like Facebook, NASA, Twitter and Panasonic.

The platform offers secure access to all users, apps and devices whether they are on premises or in remote location. Similarly the company’s two-factor authentication ensures secured data from social engineering and thereby protects the organization’s data from being hacked. The mechanism includes identifying users by combining two components which can be possessed by particular user alone.

Last week duo announced that Duo mobile’s development team has been working on updates to their new authentication application with Apple watch. The new application will contribute user to approve their login request and generate passcode from a paired apple watch. Now users can block data breaches with tap tic engine technology, that means user will actually feel tap on their wrist whenever login request is sent by Duo mobile.

Duo mobile for iOS will support Touch Id each time they authenticate through Duo mobile; an added layer of security to verify user’s identity. Now the Duo platform edition will magnify its security by blocking users from other countries where company don’t operate, prevent anonymous user to use data and will create account of all devices like Mac, PC’s and smart phones used by employees to access corporate apps.

Another notable feature which makes Duo demandable is that it can identify devices which travelled jail roots making it extra secure. These factors help end users to adopt the secure applications without leaving them skeptic about its authentication.
