Hi Francis Tuttle:
To improve our security posture, we are incorporating Duo Security as a two-factor authentication solution (D2FA) into our existing IT infrastructure.
This upgrade/update is required by our Cyber Security Insurance providers.
What You Need to Know:
Last week, you received an enrollment email from Duo Security. (If you did not receive an enrollment email, contact ITS) This email will contain a personalized link allowing you to enroll with D2FA. This 2-minute self-enrollment process makes it easy to register your phone and install the Duo Mobile application.
Duo Mobile is Duo Security’s free app that allows you to quickly and easily approve a second-factor authentication request using Duo Push.
Click here to view an example of Duo Push in action.
If you do not have a smartphone, you can enroll a regular cell phone (text + calls) or landline (calls) for two-factor authentication.
You will have until July 15, 2022 to enroll. After this date, access to your desktop computer, email, VDI, and remote sessions will require Duo two-factor authentication.
Enroll today. Check your FT inbox for an enrollment email from Duo and complete the enrollment process. If you have already enrolled, you will not receive another enrollment email.
How will Duo Change Your Login Experience?
When logging in to an application that is protected by D2FA, you will still enter your username and password. After inputting your login information, D2FA requires you to complete a method of second-factor authentication.
D2FA does not replace or require you to change your username and password. Think of D2FA as a layer of security added to your pre-existing login method.
Should you have questions or concerns, please contact ITS by email or phone. Thank you for your continued support.
