Remote Access During COVID-19 Crisis
Many organizations are now embracing a work from home initiative. Whereas historically only a subset of a company’s employees would access their systems remotely, we are now witnessing an astounding increase of users with remote access during this crisis. If you have a few, or all of your users remote, CTI’s recommendation will always be to validate and insure your security is postured to protect your information and intellectual property. Among many other considerations for remote access we would urge you to consider a multifactor solution such as Duo.
What is Duo?
Duo’s Trusted Access solution combines user identity, device control, and application protection to provide a secure and reliable solution to protect your business. Simple user identity confirmation through multifactor authentication where a second source of validation is completed before access is granted to your systems. This approach is designed to protect data and applications that your business relies on.
What is Multifactor Authentication?
Multifactor authentication adds a second layer of security to your online accounts. Verifying your identity using a second factor (like your phone or other mobile device) prevents anyone but you from logging in, even if they know your password.
