Duo + OneLogin: Adaptive Authentication

April 13th, 2016   /     /   product and technology, security and compliance

What is Adaptive Authentication

Today, IT is faced with the dual challenge of ensuring user productivity while maintaining high security standards. In particular, IT must corral the various authentication ingresses to company data.

Traditional frameworks controlling authentication at the endpoints are fraught with complexity (agent installs) and often hinder security as they frequently do not take into account additional risk factors such as location, network type or operating system. Through adaptive authentication, organizations can leverage big data insights during each login.

With Duo and OneLogin, adaptive authentication can be applied across a company’s applications - both in the cloud or on-premise.

OneLogin + Duo

OneLogin’s seamless integration with Duo extends endpoint protection to thousands of applications, both in the cloud and on-premise. By leveraging the open-source SAML protocol for authentication, companies can force authentication at the OneLogin level. With Duo as the second authentication factor for OneLogin, organizations can leverage Duo’s big data insights to protect their applications.

OneLogin’s step-up application policies can enforce additional authentication requirements for specific users accessing specific applications. For example, if HR accesses an HRIS tool such as Namely or Workday, they are prompted for a second factor of authentication from Duo to ensure that they are authorized to access the data. With Duo’s adaptive authentication, additional risk factors can be automatically analyzed to ensure that HR is securely able to access the service.
