Akamai continues to build a zero trust ecosystem by integrating it’s Enterprise Application Access (EAA) with Duo‘s Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solution.
Duo now natively integrates into EAA and augments access with push-based MFA, phone call delivery of MFA tokens, and additional device level checking. With the joint Akamai-Duo solution, organizations can begin adopting a zero trust security model. They can reduce dependencies on the network perimeter for access and enforce strong authentication and authorization for all users and devices, thereby preventing attackers with stolen credentials or devices with a weak security posture from accessing applications.
This combined technology solution also gives organizations a remote access VPN alternative, allowing them to evolve to shifting styles and habits of today’s workforce. Through this partnership, every time a user tries to access an application delivered by Akamai’s Enterprise Application Access, Duo verifies the trust of the user and the device in real-time.
