We have chosen Duo Security as our multi-factor authentication solution because of these benefits:
Duo protects your account and your data To gain access to your University account, an attacker would need the physical device you use Duo with along with either your passcode/phrase or fingerprint/facial recognition. If all the attacker has is your University credentials (username and password), they can't get in. One factor can fail, and the other will still protect you.

Duo offers flexibility The simplest way to use Duo is via a free mobile app on your smartphone or tablet which will receive a push notification when you log in to a service which you need to approve. Alternatives to the app include a hardware security token (a small device resembling a flash drive), phone call or SMS, however access to these options are limited.
