Locked Down: Cisco Duo and the Power of Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) [Guide]

See how multi-factor authentication (MFA) can help protect your organisation against security breaches and secure your remote workforce in this must-read guide

Today, more and more organisations are rapidly embracing remote access to enable employees to work from anywhere. This shift in the way we are working and connecting remotely requires a robust security solution for remote workers whether they are on or off the network, meaning that the more traditional perimeter-based network security is no longer adequate.

Whilst cyberattacks aren’t anything new, the ways in which attackers are compromising networks are. By attacking user credentials to leverage corporate networks and systems, this threat is magnified with employees working outside of your office environment. By using a security platform such as Cisco Duo, you can verify users’ identities – not just their credentials – with multi-factor authentication (MFA). This prevents unauthorised access and data breaches, as well as reducing the risk of cyberattacks in the first place.

Why read this guide?

Organisations must find new ways to protect remote workers from cyberattacks by focusing not just on making quick decisions around remote working strategies, but on making the right long-term decisions.
