Overall Satisfaction with Duo Security

Duo allows our entire company to successfully access specific tools that require a two-step authentication. This helps protect our company from potential hacking attempts and ups security for sensitive information. It also makes it easy for users to complete two-step authentication and limits the time spent trying to complete a task like opening an email, hunting down a security code, or waiting on a text message to authenticate.


  • The mobile app is spectacular. Very straightforward, easy to use, and the push notifications on a locked screen save so much time when it comes to authenticating.
  • Adding the tools that need to be added is as simple as scanning a QR code, which makes it a lot less complicated than competitors


  • Allowing more applications to partner with the app, making it where it could handle ALL of your two step-authentication.
  • Preventing your company from future hacking attempts limits the amount of time you would potentially have cleaning up the aftermath.
  • Minimizing the cost of having multiple two-step authentication processes and services.
It would not allow me to choose Google Authenticator but that is the only other service I have used. It was hard to get the authenticator to hook up to our tools and once it was hooked up, I never could get it to authenticate properly.
Any large company wanting to add an extra layer of security to specific tools. It's great for a tech company, but also easy enough to use for a company with non-technical users. While it will work for smaller companies, and would still be a great tool, I would think companies larger than 200 would benefit the most from the tool since they more than likely are using more tools that would integrate.
