Duo Network Gateway (DNG) provides a Zero Trust Network Architecture (ZTNA) that allows users to access web applications, websites, or SSH servers on any device and from any location. The organization controls user access on a per-application basis and applies granular control policies. This ensures healthy devices, on acceptable networks, are allowed access after the appropriate checks are completed while the riskier devices are denied access accordingly.
Duo is pleased to announce that Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) support for Duo Network Gateway is in Public Preview! RDP is one of the most widely used remote access protocols, but it is also one of the most vulnerable. With this launch, our customers can embrace secure VPN-less access to remote desktops while using the native RDP applications and workflows they are already familiar with.
The user’s experience will change slightly:
- Start to access an RDP server with any RDP client
- Primary authentication with your identity provider (IdP)
- Multi-factor authentication (MFA) with Duo Prompt
- Secure connection established through DNG to RDP server
RDP for Duo Network Gateway is currently in Public Preview, meaning that you can set things up, try it out, and even break things as you see fit! The only ask from Duo is that if a rough edge is discovered or something within the documentation feels like it could be more complete, let us know. This is your opportunity to push the DNG forward, in the direction that keeps you and your organization in mind!
