Providing extra security when working off-campus
Multi-factor authentication provides a second layer of security in addition to your password. This done by sending an approval request to an enrolled device and by requiring two different modes of authentication, the University can protect user logins from remote hacks or phishing attacks that are likely to exploit compromised or stolen user credentials.
Duo Security is used by the University as our multi-factor authentication solution and offers a number of benefits including:
- Protection of your account and data
- Compatibility across multiple devices
- Flexibility and simplicity
