Implementing Trusted Multifactor Authentication, Cloud Hosting Leader Infinitely Virtual Now MSP for Duo Security
As a Duo Security Managed Service Provider, Infinitely Virtual Offers Customers New Layer of Protection – and More
LOS ANGELES (June 20, 2017) – In a bid to quickly and easily secure its customers via trusted multifactor authentication, Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) leader Infinitely Virtual today announced that the company has become a managed service provider (MSP) for Duo Security (www.duosecurity.com).
Duo Security verifies user identity with an easy-to-use two-factor authentication solution, which will enable Infinitely Virtual to now enforce stronger user access policies. Two-factor strengthens access security by requiring two methods to verify identity: something the user knows, plus something the user has. Duo then checks user devices for out-of-date software and missing security controls. Duo Security’s device access policies will permit Infinitely Virtual to block any risky devices from accessing data and apps at login, protecting client organizations against software vulnerabilities.
Duo Security protects every application organizations deploy, whether on-premises or cloud-based, allowing clients to limit access to their applications based on type of user and device. Through Infinitely Virtual, Duo Security offers single sign-on (SSO), enabling users to log in only once to securely access all of their enterprise cloud applications.
“Duo Security’s technology protects against data breaches by ensuring only legitimate users and appropriate devices have access to sensitive data and applications — anytime, anywhere,” said Adam Stern, founder and CEO, Infinitely Virtual. “Because there’s no central authority to vouch for whether people are who they say they are, traditional security products have made it difficult and costly for providers like us to set policies across all of our customers’ endpoints.
“By contrast, Duo has made it fast and easy for us to protect our customers and their end-users, all in one place,” Stern said. “And because Duo Security is now a managed service through IV, our customers don’t need to manage multifactor authentication themselves.”
In April, Duo Security launched its Duo Managed Service Provider (MSP) program, giving MSPs the tools to better protect their customers from data breaches in a rapidly changing world of cloud applications and mobile devices. Pricing for Duo Security’s Trusted Access product suite through Infinitely Virtual, including Duo’s patented Push two-factor authentication technology, starts at $3 per user per month for Duo MFA, moving to $6 per user/month for the popular Duo Access and $9 per user/month for Duo Beyond:
o Duo MFA: Easily deploy Duo’s two-factor authentication solution to protect every user and get basic access controls, advanced administrative management, and user provisioning, along with an overview of overall device security hygiene.
o Duo Access: Get detailed visibility into the security hygiene of every device, give users a secure single sign-on experience, and quickly conduct phishing vulnerability assessments.
o Duo Beyond: Identifies corporate vs. personal devices with easy certificate deployment; supports blocking of untrusted endpoints and provides users with secure access to internal applications without using VPNs.
