My company uses Cisco Secure Access by Duo to help secure as many devices as possible with two-factor authentication. This includes web-based software, laptops, workstations, servers, and networking equipment. Cisco Secure Access by Duo allows us to help ensure that all equipment we manage is as secure as possible to help protect against cyber threats and provide non-repudiation of logins.

Cisco Secure Access by Duo is being used for remote access with Cisco AnyConnect in different platforms (Win, MAC, Linux) integrated into the Active Directory. Some users use their phones as second-factor authentication, while others use a Yubico Key. This implementation allows us to secure access to our corporate network with the Zero-Trust concept.

Also, we are using Cisco Secure Access by Duo as a Single-Sign-On solution in order to authenticate legacy applications and cloud solutions such as Google Workspace. It's totally recommended. You can have a dashboard to get detailed information about what's happening with the remote users.

We utilize Cisco Secure Access by Duo to protect our windows logins, remote access logins, administrative logins, Remote Desktop logins, and VPN logins for ourselves and our clients.

Many of our clients are Automotive Dealerships, and Cisco Secure Access by Duo allows us to protect almost all of our important logins for ourselves and our clients and gives us the ability to satisfy the requirements of the new Federal Safeguard regulations.

We utilize Duo Secure Access for Multi-Factor Authentication to both our SSL VPN as well as remote access to servers, including RDP access to our Windows servers and SSH access to our Linux servers. One of the best things you can do to protect your organization is to implement MFA and Duo has satisfied that need.

We used to login in remotely with our clients when conducting inspections but we also used our staff to login in from home when they telework. It gives great access to off-sites and communications with views of areas we need to review through our clients providing feedback on the program.

Duo mobile is our Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for all the apps we use. While passwords are not enough to protect our public cloud environment, One Time Password (OTP) adds an extra layer of security challenges in order to access any company info or data. On top of our application that we access with SSO IDP and Duo, many 3rd parties services that we use support integration with Duo out-of-box.

Cisco Secure Access, by Duo, is used by myself and the team to enable access and login to access secured applications and our private network. This solution is quick and easy to use, allowing access whereby the Duo app sends a push notification, which the user can then validate to log in. It solves by having a holistic, comprehensive approach to secure multifactor authentication. The solution works seamlessly and requires little to no training.

The connection is not robust enough. The team faces instances when the network disconnects after some time and does not connect automatically. The duo should improve on the robustness of the connection. Along with maintaining a vast network bandwidth. Duo system is used for authentication. There is a lag in the signal sometimes which hampers in user experience and drawbacks in terms of providing the best possible user experience.

Duo has been implemented for years at my university. It was smoothly rolled out to 7,000 staff and faculty and now to our countless students. The non-profit I volunteer for recently switched to Office365 for email, and I was able to use Duo instead of MS's own "Authenticator". It's nice to be able to reuse the same 2FA apps across multiple uses and organizations.

We were required to introduce 2 Factor Authentication to meet insurance requirements due to a new policy change, we already utilized a Cisco solution for VPN access and we needed to cover Microsoft Exchange OWA access as well and Duo was a great fit. I had several options available but the demonstration for Duo was really straightforward and could be configured to our needs easier and more specifically than other 2FA options.

Cisco Secure provides you with two-factor authentication for your devices and a cloud-based application. we are using this for both in-house as well as cloud-based applications. We have configured Cisco Secure Access on our Cisco routers, switches, and a firewall. we can easy to configure with a third-party application. The cost of Cisco secure access is very low and it is very easy to configure and manage.

We use Duo for all of the employees at the university. We currently have it implemented for desktop and virtual machine access as well as Microsoft 365 access. It has helped us be far more secure than we were before the product was adopted. The most immediate impact was that our accounts were no longer being used by spammers when users were phished successfully.

Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo is one of the main parts of our security architecture. Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo stands as a gate on the frontier to allow secure access on our systems. Most of our colleagues switched to working remotely [during] that lockdown period. As they require remote access, we need to provide [the] most reliable and secure remote access to them as the IT. Duo / Cisco Secure Access, by Duo's important role, is undeniable on that matter as we verify their identity and protect their credentials.

We currently use Duo /Cisco Secure Access, by Duo via our IT Department at the moment. It currently addresses MFA for the following products in our environment: Carbon Black, MS Office 365 Email, LastPass for offsite authentication. I feel that it truly addresses a strong multifactor. We have done several penetration tests and during their compromise phase, they could not get into our email and into Carbon Black to change configurations to mask/hide alerts from being visible to our two-man IT Security Team.

We use Duo primarily to provide multi-factor access (MFA) for our RADIUS-based devices, though we also use it for MFA with SSO. We are only using it for the IT team, since we use Microsoft MFA for most of the rest of the firm for remote access. We needed a tool with a straightforward interface to manage all of our IT admin MFA needs, such as fine-grained policies, per application.

Duo is being used across the whole organization which encompasses four different business divisions for a total of between 350-375 employees. We use Duo as a part of our two-factor authentication when logging into our network from off-campus locations. This last year with the pandemic, the number of employees that were added to remote network capabilities increased by around 70% which meant more people were getting set up and using Duo. I have not heard of any problems and it has helped us maintain secure access to the network, which is vital in the industries we compete in.
