I would not hesitate to recommend Cisco Secure Access by Duo to colleagues. In today's cyber security environment, companies must take every step possible to secure systems. Two-factor authentication is a critical part of cyber security. Cisco Secure Access by Duo works very well for this purpose. The product has the added benefit of providing non-repudiation on valid logins.

Cisco Secure Access by Duo is recommended if you need to enable multifactor authentication with no major effort to implement it, understanding you have to pay a license per user. It's important to mention that what you are paying gives you a lot of possibilities to enable SSO on your applications, even legacy systems., there is no need to pay extra for it.

If you are looking for free or cheap software, Cisco Secure Access by Duo is not an option.

For our clients, it has been a lifesaver allowing us to implement MFA for their user logins, VPN access, and RDP logins. It has kept unauthorized users out of their systems.

I love the demo reseller portion that allows us to utilize the product for free and test it before rolling it out, and we continue to use it for free! Cisco Secure Access by Duo understands that the more we utilize it, the better we can use it with our clients.

In my opinion Duo Secure Access is one of the best platforms out there for implementing multi-factor authentication to secure your environment. We evaluated several other products before deciding on Duo for MFA, and Duo was far above any other option in almost every category. The one scenario where it is not ideal is where you are unable to leverage the mobile app, such as if you cannot ask your employees to use their personal devices.

The system does have a hard time connecting in areas such as basements, underground parking structures, or areas where the signal is weak such as rural areas. You will tend to get a lot of static breakup with poor quality in video views which breaks up the communication. Difficult to work in these conditions

Cisco Secure Access would be ideal for dynamic fast-growing cloud base companies, that are looking for easy-to-implement solutions to improve their security and internal resources access. The solution can also work great with other Cisco products which are all monitored in the SecureX dashboard by Cisco. The Duo Secure Access is similar to other products in the market and if a company already has a No-VPN solution installed and no other Cisco security products - They should consider again if it's worth switching.

You will need to use a Cisco Secure Access by Duo hardware token since it doesn't support 3rd party. As for pricing, some vendors like Microsoft have their own, so it might come with the license you already own. If you want easy management and use, this solution is straightforward.

Cisco Secure access is well suited in areas of protection of personal information. as many individuals would like to keep their accounts private and the information, especially with all the students that attend the university. I feel that it is pretty safe and a good tool. In some situations, it is less appropriate timing due to the short log-in times when someone is in a pinch those precious seconds are being used to log in when a login could last for a semester rather than a week.

Duo Security is a multi-factor authentication service that provides additional security for access to organizations and personal data. Employees, students, faculty and staff use Duo Security for websites with confidential information and for Office 365 applications such as Outlook for Email. Duo Security is a strong SaaS product to fill the infrastructure gap of 2-factor authentication for infrastructure.

Duo works great when integrated with our systems at our university, using both open-source IdP and Microsoft AD and Azure, Duo has an applet for it. Duo is a strong name in security and a new niche in Cisco's ever-expanding portfolio. Duo supports telephone calls, tokens/passcodes, push notifications, etc.

I give this a 9 just because a 10 is rare in software, however, each of our users has found this 2FA App easy to use and reliable. Installation was free and fast (you must allow this app notification on your device) associating the app with our company is a simple text message and worked very well each time. I can see that a new replaced phone would be a simple push update to get them going again. And it is really fast to authenticate.

Cisco Secure Access is best and well suited for size or organization that needs dual security for network devices and applications. We can easy to configure and integrate with third-party applications. The graphical user interface is very user-friendly and it is easy to configure and manage. The cost of Cisco Secure Access is very low.

[Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo] is a lightweight means of authenticating software logins without dealing with infinitely-stacking emails or text messages accomplishing the same purposes. It loads quickly and operates simply, with a nice clean UI. It accomplishes its narrow purpose clearly and efficiently.

As far as multi-factor authentication goes, Duo is the one that everyone else needs to catch up to. There is a cost to it that can be more than competitors, but you can't beat the ease of use and the integration across platforms that it offers. It has been reliable with very few outages. The few outages we have seen have been short and we were well notified about both the issue and the resolution. Overall, the cost is far outweighed by the safety that Duo adds to your organization. Even a single, successful attack can easily cost far more than you will pay for the product.

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo, is well suited if there is a connection to a particular software program or service that requires secure, two-factor authentication. In this case, the user would install the app on their phone and would link it to the service, and each login will require verification through Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo, to ensure that it is the user themselves securely logging into the program. This helps protect secure access to the program.

Absolutely I would recommend Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo to my colleagues. Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo's implementation process, is painless and flows smoothly. Does not require too much effort on maintenance as it works like set it up and forget. Finally, its mobile app for end-users is easy to adapt, anyone ranging from beginner to pro IT user can use it without any problem.

Very well suited for Enterprises needing a strong MFA. Its very easy to setup the account, very easy to configure MFA for LassPass, Office 365 Mail, and Carbon Black. Duo /Cisco Secure Access, by Duo does have a long list of supported enterprise applications. I feel that Duo /Cisco Secure Access, by Duo doesn't fit the lass appropriate category as this application is fully designed to meet your MFA needs.

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo is well-suited for small to large businesses. We focus on the nonprofit and small business sectors and have found that this solution has met every need on the checklist. Organizations that are concerned about security gain peace of mind with a centrally managed console that provides insight into user installations, as well as, granular policies that can prevent usage on vulnerable devices.

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo, is useful and very appropriate for keeping users who do not need access to other individuals personal information out. It has multi-layer security levels and has a lot hoops to go through. This extra level of security can be a hindrance at times because when you access for multiple days, it does not save the user or even the device.

It is suitable for using Duo, whenever mail needs to be accessed, allows greater security without any intruder wanting to enter the tray.

Another factor is also PC or laptop login authentication, but that's not possible if you don't have an internet connection.

Great for organizations that need to deploy a solution that is used by a small group, given that Duo charges per account; however, be careful if you have a lot of service accounts that you want to set to bypass MFA, as you will have to pay for each one of them, as you would for any human user. Also good for small IT teams that need a solution that has a very straightforward and easy-to-use GUI. Finally, while it has a decent amount of features and functionality, don't expect it to be able to do every permutation of policy that you can think of, though Cisco is promising future updates and solutions (e.g. an adaptive product) that will address some very specific use-cases, such as MFA bypass based on user and IP.

Duo is great if you really desire to secure your access to a network or website account through two-factor authentication. I actually use it personally as well to help secure my access to some of my social media accounts. I know that if I am using it to get approval for access, I am confident that I have a secure connection.
