Likelihood to Recommend

Duo Security

I feel Duo Security if well-suited for a couple of use cases:
  • Any implementation of two-factor authentication whether there is an existing single sign-on infrastructure or not. This is likely the strongest suit of Duo Security due to the breadth of services supported and the flexibility provided.
  • Simple implementation of single sign-on that does not require advanced attributes management. Organizations that do not have complex needs for single sign-on and just want to authenticate the users without doing advanced provisioning and complex attributes mappings would benefit from having single sign-on and two-factor authentication in the same platform.
Complex single sign-on environments that require deep management of attributes and permissions will likely benefit from more mature single sign-on platforms.

Pros

Duo Security

  • User functionality is simple. Our users love the ability to use their iPhones for the authentication.
  • User access is quick. We have had no reports of sluggishness or timeout issues when logging in and no downtime reported for the functionality in the year that we've used the service.
  • Bypass option in Duo is easy to administer when you have to make an exception for a user to bypass the two factor authentication (for example someone lost their iPhone but needs to work remotely until the new phone arrives).

Cons

Duo Security

  • They offer a great and in depth process and documentation around popular systems, but that may leave you feeling stranded when attempting to use with other devices not listed. For example, MikroTik routers are not officially supported nor was it easy to connect to our LDAP servers without an additional RADIUS Server on top of the DUO Security Proxy.
  • Adding in multiple devices per user is a great feature since not all users will have their phone with them or a Hardware Token with them. It was easy to setup and use but found it difficult to tie one application to one user with multiple devices which can be used to authenticate.
  • Cost of telephone messages are a bit expensive compared to other competitors.

I have never had to use or connect support with Duo and that is because I have never had a problem with the app. It is so easy to use and functional every time that there is no need to reach out to support, but I know that I can if I ever had to.

Alternatives Considered

Duo Security

Duo offers cryptographic infrastructure that is more robust than SecureID does (or did). In addition, Duo has never intentionally built back doors in to their product at the behest of the NSA. Many Duo products are either themselves open source or are based on open source codebase, so it is easy to verify that they are secure. Duo's pricing is also MUCH better than RSA's.

Return on Investment

Duo Security

  • Duo Security helps me sleep better as I worry less about an external attacker gaining unauthorized access to my network.
  • If there is a downside to Duo Security, it is that we did get some pushback from the end user community as they felt it was a hinderance to their workflow. However, Duo Security's flexibility allowed us to minimize that impact.
  • Duo Security provides a lot of information about the devices being used to access your network remotely.
