Cisco DUO – universal multi-factor authentication

Cisco DUO – security in subscription


Multi-factor authentication, also known as MFA (Multi Factor Authentication), is currently an essential element of securing access at the edge of the network, and in environments requiring an increased level of security, also internal access to networks and applications. As part of multi-factor authentication, in addition to standard data such as user and password, an additional factor generated by the system is introduced. Only by providing three correct elements, the user can be authenticated and granted access to network resources.
