Announcing the Release of Duo Central and Duo Single Sign-on (SSO)

We are excited to announce the release of our new cloud-based SSO offering! Duo Single Sign-On and Duo Central are now available to all non-Federal customers on Duo MFA, Access, and Beyond editions at no additional cost.

Duo Single Sign-On is a cloud-hosted SAML Identity Provider (IdP) that adds two-factor authentication, complete with inline self-enrollment and the Duo Prompt, to popular cloud services like Salesforce and Amazon Web Services using SAML 2.0 federation. Duo SSO supports on-premises Active Directory (AD) and cloud or on-premises SAML IdPs as identity sources.

By allowing users to access multiple applications with a single username and password, Duo SSO helps mitigate the risk of bad password habits while making it easier to work flexibly. You can even create access policies that can differ by application, depending on the sensitivity of its data and the privileges of the user, which reduces user friction while protecting your most important assets.

Duo Central is a cloud-hosted site users can visit to get access to all of your organization’s applications and links. By uniting all tools under one interface, you make it easier for users to find important resources.

Duo Central displays both Duo-protected applications and any other resources you wish to link to as individual tiles, known as Application Tiles and Bookmark Tiles respectively. Tiles are completely customizable with the ability to add a custom logo and even limit visibility to certain groups of users with Permitted Groups. Tiles can be edited and updated at any time.

You can learn more by reading the documentation and checking out our new cloud-hosted SSO solution with Duo Single Sign-On and Duo Central for yourself today. Look for Single Sign-On in the Duo Admin Panel to get started.
