Any business seeking to secure access to their corporate resources by adding that additional authentication layer. It's essential now - phishing scams are rampant and are generally unstoppable. Remote work is the norm and, whether it's hybrid or fully remote, it needs to be controlled. Cisco Secure Access by Duo is a simple, lightweight, and highly effective method of achieving what is quickly becoming "table-stakes" in the cyber security realm.

Unifyed Student Verify is easy to use and easy to set up. Licensing is the best because it is done per user and not per device. It integrated well with existing business processes, and customization of plug-ins was done for different applications.

Cons

Cisco

  • If you need to integrate some legacy applications to Cisco Secure Access by Duo, it's not easy.
  • If you want to have more detailed information and reports, you need to pay more for the licensing. The basic option is not enough.
  • A constraint could be that each employee has to install it on their personal smartphone, which some don't like. But, there is an alternative using SMS, although sometimes it takes too long to receive the message.

    There are a lot of competing solutions on the market; however, Duo "just works", and there is little to no learning curve for the new members to be acclimated to it. As long as that continues I see it as the preferred option moving forward

    Usability

    Cisco

    I believe this is one of the most popular methods of authentication and it works for us. I haven’t had any issues since I set up my account and I have been able to use it even abroad during business trips. Overall a great experience and I would recommend it to someone looking to protect clients' sensitive data

    Reliability and Availability

    Cisco

    In the last 5+ years we've been using Duo, there may have been 1 outage that impacted us. We do receive periodic notifications of issues but, for the most part, they impact carriers or functionality that we either don't use, or do not care about.

    Support Rating

    Cisco

    Most of my support has come from the pre-sales side, as I haven't done much with post-sales support. The engineer was helpful, though it would have been even better if he had more production experience. Hopefully the backing by Cisco will give Duo support the deep bench that one would expect out of Cisco.

    Implementation Rating

    Cisco

    Implementation of Cisco Secure Access by Duo was easy and intuitive. Integration of third party applications via API interface was painless. ON the few occasions that I needed to work with support to troubleshoot an issue, I have been satisfied with the level of support that was provided. All in all, the implementation process was better than many other products.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco

    I think that Duo is better than SecureAuth because the interface is better. I like the usability better and I like the design and functionality better. I wasn't involved in the selection process and initially didn't want to make the switch because I had heard some complaints about Duo but now that I have used it for a couple of years I would definitely say it is better than what I was using.
