Traditional security relies on location-based trust. A zero‑trust model establishes trust for every access request — regardless of location. It enforces adaptive controls, and continuously verifies trust. From the start, the principles of zero trust were baked into Duo’s ethos. Duo entered the market with a strong MFA (Multi-Factor Authentication) solution that provided a balance between usability and security. Since then Duo have evolved with their customers to offer a security solution with full coverage.
Cisco Duo forms part of a market leading suite of security products, all integrated into Cisco’s new XDR (eXtended Detection & Response) Platform, SecureX.

Multi-factor authentication protects your applications by using a second source of validation to verify user identity before granting access. Adding MFA to your security stack doesn't have to be disruptive to your users. Duo is fast and easy for users to set up, and with several authentication methods available, users can choose the method that best fits their workflow.
Users without a smartphone may choose to receive an SMS or a phone call to authenticate. Those with a smartphone may choose the Mobile App to receive a soft token or push notification. Users can even use a smartwatch to authenticate. However, the method(s) of allowed authentication can be determined by the customer.
SAS can set up enrolment options that best fit your organizational needs to ensure a successful adoption.
Single Sign-On (SSO) allows users to access any and every application, whether it's on-premises or cloud-based, with the same username and password. Access can be further simplified by consolidating all end user facing applications into a single website or launcher. Users login just once and access all their applications without having to login again. By combining this with strong authentication and access policy controls, access attempts are validated and logged, but the friction to users is reduced through streamlined workflows.
Our Technical Consultants will work with you to discuss your options and capture your requirements before agreeing the technical design with you. We can enrol your users into the service or assist you in assisting them enrol.
In our experience customers usually start by protecting applications such a Microsoft 365 or a Remote VPN service before expanding to include other corporate applications and take advantage of the SSO capabilities.
No volume or term commitment – just pay for the licences that you need.
