New enhancements to Duo's access control policies


#1

Hundreds of customers across different sizes and industries use Duo Platform’s access control functionality to protect sensitive applications from unauthorized users and out-of-date devices. We’ve been working closely with them to learn how to further improve these features for both administrators and end users, and we’re excited to announce some significant additions to our access control capabilities.

Our new access control policy engine makes it easy for you to limit access to certain software platforms.

  • You can block a specific OS, browser or plugin on a per-application level
  • You can also allow only recent versions of Adobe Flash and Java to access business apps
  • You can also block users running certain plugins from accessing your most critical apps

We’ve also updated the self-remediation workflow to more clearly communicate your security policy/remediation steps - see yesterday’s blog for screenshots and specific examples and to learn more.
