"Unmatched security at incredibly reasonable prices"

What do you like best?

DUO offers us 2FA security without the considerable costs normally associated with 2FA. Rather than having to run our own 2FA server at significant costs and maintenance requirements, we are able to have a simple deployment for our users and get the security we need.

What do you dislike?

I have been using DUO for years now and haven't had any issues to date, I'm truly a happy customer when it comes to DUO.

Recommendations to others considering the product

DUO is an industry leader when it comes to network security. They are currently being acquired by Cisco, another industry leader in this realm. I can confidently recommend DUO to small and large business who take security seriously.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We discovered DUO soon after our company was hit by a sever cryptolock attack. This was due to a user using unsecure and repeated passwords. Adding the 2FA layer from DUO solved the issue of allowing someone to remotely access a system, even if they were able to determine a password from brute force, phishing or other social engineering based attacks.

"Streamlined MFA solution used at my company in combination with Okta SSO"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that I can send a push straight to my iPhone and then authenticate with 3D touch and touchID. Authentication is extremely fast compared to MFA through google, apple, etc

What do you dislike?

I wish that I could set Duo to always automatically push to my phone instead of asking me to select an option. I also wish that I could have Duo be already authenticated on my iPhone after restoring from an iCloud backup. I tried restoring on an itunes backup and it works if the backup is encrypted. On an iCloud restore you will need to re-authenticate the device.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend trying it. I just found out that Okta has it's own MFA system that I'm sure would integrate well with Okta. However, Duo integrates very well and works very quickly. Highly recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Duo has allowed us to set up MFA for our applications on Okta as well as for OpenVPN connect to securely authenticate sign in by users in the office and working remotely.

What Cloud Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Due Mobile for Additional Security"

What do you like best?

I like that the app allows me to send a push to my phone to authenticate my email login. It is very user friendly and I feel like my email is very secure.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes if I have poor cell service, I do not receive a push notification but I don't necessarily attribute that to the app itself, it's more of a minor inconvenience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this to anyone who is concerned about email security!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved the problem of adding an additional layer of security to each email login and I use my school email daily. Each time I login I know that no one else is able to use my email because I would get notified on my phone.

"Great But Not Efficient"

What do you like best?

Increased security which needs to be identified twice before logging into various accounts. Can be verified through mobile app.

What do you dislike?

Although this increases security, it is very hard to verify user when you lose your mobile device. It has to verify by a push through app, a code through the app, or mobile phone number.

One day, sister mistakened my phone as her’s and took it with her. I use my phone for Duo during my job. All my work application depends on Duo. Without my phone with Duo app,I wasn’t able to access anything on an unfamiliar device. Made my job very difficult that day.

Good concept, but needs more verification options

Recommendations to others considering the product

Add multiple devices to verify!

"Two-Factor made easy"

What do you like best?

Simple to implement, It provides secure authentication. It is easy to enroll and manage users. Support for Apple and Android devices. Easy to implement with most authentication infrastructures.

What do you dislike?

No complaints. All is working well. The fixed a minor issue several months ago where the screen would pause to display some text then adjust down slightly causing you to touch the wrong area if you used the app quickly (open app and instantly lookup your 6 digit number). All is well now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They offer a trial period which can help determine if it is right for you. More than likely you will be pleased and decide to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using DUO to authenticate applications eliminates the need for password changes. This is a welcome change for most users and a welcome change for the Help Desk as people tend to put off forced password changes to the last minute, forget the new password, or not change it in time.

"Very secure "

What do you like best?

Since duo is accessible from your mobile phone, it is very convenient and fast.

What do you dislike?

The only thing i dont like about the duo security is that when you are logging in it takes an extra step, however that assures no one else can access my information.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Duo is very user friendly and I feel like it a very good way to insure that your stuff is secure

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits are solely security benefits, no one can get access to my work information or my emails with out having access to my duo and i get an alert every time i need a duo login.

"Great two factor authentication app"

What do you like best?

The 30 day access option makes login on non-public desktops and laptops I use in my office, and on my own personal devices I use on campus quick. I don't ever have to worry about my phone not being charged to approve push notifications.

What do you dislike?

I absolutely hate when my phone isn't charged, or I don't have it with me while troubleshooting AV issues around campus. It takes a lot more effort to get logged in the websites without a phone or a chromebook that is recognized by DUO, and that's very inconvenient when I need to access university web pages that require my credentials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For organizations and institutions wanting to increase security that may be compromised through phishing attempts via email, this is a great option. It has cut down the traffic at our main support desk where users receive help recovering passwords.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before requiring employees to use Duo, and really bringing awareness of the app to the rest of the campus community we used to waste a lot of time resetting passwords for people who fell for phishing scams. The section of our department responsible for user accounts spends a lot less time resetting passwords and is more available to address more complex issues.

"Super simple 2FA"

What do you like best?

It is a 2FA solution with easy management and compatibility with a good selection of vendors. There are integration tools that will let you add 2fa to a number of popular platforms that don't offer it natively. The dashboard is clear and simple. User management is a no brainer, and there are some nice little reports that give you an accounting of activity. There is even an apple watch client app that provides a one touch approval for multi factor logins. The directions for the integrations with third party products are clear enough that we have never had a problem tying them in to the Duo system.

What do you dislike?

Not much. It would be nice if they offered a tier with more security options, such as limiting access by geography or whitelist only ip ranges.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is extremely simple to get up and running. If you already have products that authenticate using radius or ldap, you are halfway there. The back end service does have occasional and brief outages, which may cause a disruption for very large organizations with a constant flow of traffic, but for our needs, the downtime has been almost imperceptible. For authentication against local resources, you will need to host a proxy server in house to which requests will be forwarded.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to add multi factor authentication to several platforms where we did not have it before. The amount of security this adds for the price is absolutely worth it. We are able to better secure anything that authenticates through our active directory.

"Full feature 2FA Provider"

What do you like best?

I like how well different integration topics are covered by Duo's knowledge base.

What do you dislike?

Automated emails from Duo's billing and sales team seem to go to junkmail because they use some service. While not the worst thing in the world it seems odd for a security company and wish I did not have to miss them. The billing emails don't seem to be able to even have a consistent rule applied to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Check to see if other hardware and services you use in your environment support Duo. Chances are they do!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving the problem of 2FA authentication on Windows across different services.

"Duo Security "

What do you like best?

The Duo app makes logging on very easy and efficient. It's very intuitive.

What do you dislike?

If you do not carry your cell phone with you all the time, there may be times you cannot log in because you cannot access the Duo app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering a way to ensure your data/email/documents are more secure, Duo makes it easy to do so.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Duo is supposed to make it more difficult for hackers to access your email as well as other important websites that may contain sensitive information. I like the added security it brings and provides peace of mind, especially when you are dealing with confidential data.

"best all in one SSO/2FA product i have seen so far"

What do you like best?

As an admin, this is super simple to install, configure and be up and running in no time.

What do you dislike?

That the trial version is only 30 days. You cant really get a true feel for a product in your environment in such a short time. the 30 days includes weekends, so in reality you may only truly get more like 20 days.

"Very simple to use!"

What do you like best?

I use Duo Security almost every day, and I've always had good experiences with it. It's quick and easy to use. I have never had any issues at all. When using the app, I have them send me a push, which sends me a login code. Everything happens within seconds, which is great. There's no waiting time.

What do you dislike?

If I had to pick something to be annoyed about, I would say it's the fact that I had to download an app to my phone in order to use Duo Security. But overall, it's not that big of a deal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not all employees will want to have the app on their personal phones.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It adds extra security when logging in remotely.

"A Necessary Evil, But I'm Thankful"

What do you like best?

Duo seems to be safe and ensure security, but the most important feature for users is ease of use and approval. I find Duo very easy to use and with an iPhone 7 with the haptic button, I can approve without having to find the Duo app and maneuver through the app to approve. Instead I can do it through the push notification and finger print ID.

What do you dislike?

Nothing that Duo is doing poorly, though I miss the days without dual sign in and extra security, but like I said, it's a necessary evil.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I absolutely would. Again, dual security adds another step in my day, but with the push notification and Apple Finger ID, plus one day sign in, Duo makes dual authentication a breeze. I would say that if you lose the ability to send a push and you have to use the phone call, it costs Clemson a decent amount of money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security and assurance that no one is discovering secure information. I have realized that hacked information is a serious problem and risk and Duo makes authentication easy.

"Easy to Use Security Tool"

What do you like best?

It's so simple to get users signed up with Duo and the configuration steps are so simple, making it foolproof.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes we have issues where users don't always get the notification they have something awaiting their approval or it requests the approval more than once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a seamless integration that works on various platforms with a consistent design for ease of use among all users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This allows us to troubleshoot remote connectivity issues based on if they're reaching the point in the process where Duo is being notified of a login attempt. This makes my job easier to see where the steps are failing.

"Great security measure"

What do you like best?

I love that you can access DUO from a mobile app - makes having a secondary security measure not be a pain, but still be effective. It's also very quick; the log in request comes up on my phone almost immediately when I try to log into my account from my computer. I also really like that after I approve on my mobile, it will automatically take me to the next log in screen on my computer (I only have to do the one submission).

What do you dislike?

There is not much I dislike about this program! It is straightforward to use, and seems to be an effective security measure!

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is easy to use and understand -- we did not have any issues that I know of implementing this technology throughout our departments. People seemed to get the hang of it right away, and only a few people of older generations seemed to push back a little. Overall, using Duo for secondary authentication seems like a win-win choice.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes our employee accounts much more safe. While it works quickly so that it does not hinder everyday time sheet entries, it protects private tax information, etc. much better than having a single log in product. If anyone ever tries to log into my account -- I definitely know, no matter where I am or what I am doing!

"Security at the "push" of a button "

What do you like best?

The way it gets integrated with any OS, ease of registration, installation on the mobile and 100% secured.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the app can hang and push the requests multiple times (and may eventually throw you out of network). We'll be required to retrying. This can happen when the mobile phone hangs and when there is a delay in the push from Duo to mobile.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are various features that come handy with Duo. It is ease to setup. Mobile app is very handy. You can either generate the token or use their push option from your computer and push the request to your mobile.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

2nd factor authentication is now mandatory at our work place and Duo Security is our solution.

"Consultant's use of Duo Security"

What do you like best?

The code is very simple and allows me to quickly log in to my network VPN at home by using my phone. I also like that I can use the functionality offline and even on an airplane.

What do you dislike?

The connection can be very slow if using remotely. However, I am not sure if that is because of DUO Security or my computer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Duo Security allows me to remotely access my company's network. The software not only utilizes efficiency by allowing me to log in and complete work from virtually any where, but it also protects the security of my company and my clients by keeping confidential and protected information off my desk top and within the secured network.

"Difficult to use"

What do you like best?

I like that my accounts are secured with two-factor authentication. Having an app for users is also very helpful. I have heard that there is also a plug-in for your computer, making logins much easier and efficient, but unfortunately my company has disabled the use of them for unknown reasons.

What do you dislike?

Logging into my school's website using Duo has been a thorn in my side. Each and every time I have to log in, I am redirected to my phone, wherever that may be at the time, and asked to confirm the login. This has been a frustrating experience as well as a massive time sink.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As of now, no perceived business problems have been solved, but I realize that having a more secure login is only to my benefit and is a dramatic upgrade from previously.

"Security perspective: good. Developer perspective: annoying"

What do you like best?

How fast it pushes notifications to one's smart-phone. They really do try their best to make it as non-annoying as possible, given how annoying spending that extra time on dual authentication is.

What do you dislike?

It's very frustrating how much aggregated time I waste unlocking my phone to confirm via Duo that I want to sign in somewhere. As a developer, it seems to get in the way more than anything else. From a security perspective, I'm glad that we have it. I wish dual authentication wasn't so difficult sometimes, but I'd prefer more secure over less secure.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's excellent in its function, but it's frustrating as a concept. I'd highly recommend using Duo Security if you are moving towards Dual Authentication.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The use of Duo is solving the risk of if someone's laptop or account is compromised. It provides a good user interface, and is easy to set up. It's intuitive to use.

"Radically improved security on the cheap"

What do you like best?

It was easy to get up and running. We had it working with Remote Desktop using smartphones as the authenticators on the same day we decided to try it. The integration for OWA went even faster because we already had all the users enrolled for Remote Desktop; it was simply a matter of installing the software on Exchange servers.

Duo offers many authentication options, including push to a smartphone, text to any cell phone, call to any phone, and numeric codes generated by OATH keys.

The service has proven to be reliable and fast.

What do you dislike?

There are some tempting features at the more expensive plan levels, but not quite enough to justify the increase in price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Given the very simple setup and the availability of a free trial, there's not much to consider. Give it whirl.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adding two-factor security significantly improves security.

"Great Two step authentication"

What do you like best?

It gives us that second layer of authentication we are looking for. Very easy and convenient for users set up, learn and adapt to. Very easy to manage users from an administrative perspective.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the push notifications for users do not come through. We have found this is usually due to the WiFi connections they are on, normally hotels, would have a specific port blocked. But DUO does have another method of authentication for this situation.

What do you like best?

Duo is an effective tool for two-step verification, especially in hospital setting while dealing with sensitive patient data. Its much easier than using the hardware security tokens, and typing out numbers. It allows you options between text, push notifications and security codes, which makes it easy to sign in with two-step verification anywhere.

What do you dislike?

Not much to dislike. Its an easy to use app, and has many options to choose from in terms of verification. It does drain phone battery though.

"Effective, efficient security"

What do you like best?

DUO is an extremely effective two-factor authentication platform, and one I would highly suggest. I have not found a better platform out there in terms of ease of use.

What do you dislike?

Other than an over-implementation at our company, the only real complaint I have is that DUO sometimes suffers from delays delivering the two-factor notification from your phone. These delays are usually trivial though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very considerate of where and how you implement DUO. i am a huge fan of security, but not security that sacrifices productivity especially for a useless cause. Make sure what you put behind DUO actually benefits from a two-factor authentication product. If it does, DUO is the best way to go in my opinion.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has really helped us lock down our security while also making it easier to monitor usage and make the security process less of a hassle for our employees.

"Strong TFA for Enterprise"

What do you like best?

DUO setup was clear. It seems that every time I add a new service or app, it almost always has a DUO SSO integration.

What do you dislike?

Actually configuring for the first time. Although the documentation and support are good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compared to other TFA solutions, DUO was by far the best choice for our org (under 1000 people)

"Duo Security"

What do you like best?

Duo Security provides a crucial way to keep your business accounts secure. When dealing with important and sensitive information, it is important that users feel protected.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Duo Security has you verify every time you log into a website through the same user account/computer. There should be a way that only has you log in once.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you download the application for easier use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefit of duo is that you feel an extra sense of security, and everyone's data will be further protected in the databases.

"Best Security App Ever"

What do you like best?

I like best that I have to sign in every single time I need to check my work email & I have to have a verification code sent to me via text. It’s a secure way to keep my information private & protect private information in my secured email safe.
