Duo Passwordless Authentication

Duo passwordless authentication debuted in March and enables users to skip the password and securely log into cloud applications through security keys or biometrics built into modern smartphones and laptops. It leverages biometrics platforms such as Windows Hello and Apple FaceID and TouchID, allowing organizations to consolidate hundreds of passwords and authentications into one easy login.

The product enables biometrics to be securely stored on and validated locally by the device as opposed to a centralized database and is designed to meet GDPR as well as standards like HIPAA and PCI. Passwordless authentication will be a default feature in higher editions of Duo, and the subsidiary of San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco hopes to have it publicly available in July.

More than 300 customers wanted to try out Duo passwordless authentication in beta even though there were just 50 slots available, and there’s been broad interest in the tool outside the federal contracting space regardless of vertical or size. Duo’s road to passwordless authentication has taken six years and required advances in biometric technology as well as more modern standards.
