Duo Security

Video: "EMU's Two-factor Authentication with DUO"

Duo Security is a two-factor authentication solution. Much like your ATM card and ATM PIN, Duo makes use of “something you know” like your password and “something you have” such as your phone. Even if your password is stolen, cybercriminals cannot access your DUO protected services without access to your phone.

Duo is licensed now for all EMU employees (including student employees, staff, and faculty). We recommend that staff and faculty attend an ESP training session before using Duo. Along with other topics, the ESP training sessions are designed to assist new users with installing and configuring DUO.
