Duo Community Year in Review 2021

Happy Holidays, Duo Community members! As we wind down the year to hopefully enjoy some well-deserved time off, I thought it would be fun to take a moment to reflect and look back on this year in the Duo Community.

In 2021, there were 32,343 read posts; 1,475 replies; and 100+ unique technical solutions… that’s the reach of this collective Community in the last twelve months!

Huge shoutout and congratulations :trophy: :tada: to @DuoKristina for the most solutions from a staff member, along with @linixhitman and @opsteam for the most solutions from a community member!

This year, we welcomed new members to our Duo Community Top Contributors program. Congratulations to our 2021 members! This program rewards those who go above and beyond in the community to help others and demonstrate their knowledge of Duo. A huge thank you to our members for their awesome work in the forum giving back to the community.

Our most popular posts of the year included a few technical questions answered by various members of the Community:

We had an exciting, action-packed year of product updates as well! Some of the highlights include:

  • Duo Universal Prompt now available for you to try in a public preview ahead of its general availability in early 2022. The Duo Universal Prompt boasts a simpler UI, improved accessibility and customization options, and a technical overhaul that uses the latest web standards.
  • Duo Passwordless now available as part of a public preview for Duo Single Sign-On use cases. Passwordless authentication improves access security while simultaneously reducing user friction at login. What’s not to love?
  • Remembered Devices for Windows Logon now available. We’re excited to bring you this top-requested feature for our Duo for Windows Logon integration. Configuring this feature allows users to create trusted sessions for Windows Logon, reducing the number of times they need to authenticate.
  • Duo Device Health application got an upgrade this year with a number of improvements that make it easier to adopt a defense-in-depth strategy that combines Duo’s strong MFA capabilities with device verification. These include more granular OS policies, easier deployment options, and the shift to using the Device Health app instead of device certificates for Duo Trusted Endpoints integrations like Jamf and Intune.
  • Duo Level Up became available to all! This free training and certification platform provides original online course content created by in-house experts and designed for Duo administrators and help desk staff. Learn how to confidently administer Duo — from planning your initial deployment, to adopting additional security policies, to implementing zero trust principles through a suite of Duo features.

Thank you all for being a part of the Duo Community this year! Without the contributions of our amazing members who read posts and share new questions in the forum, this platform would not be what it is today. Wishing you a happy holiday season and a great New Year!
