Duo is required to authenticate network access

Duo Multi-Factor Authentication (Duo) is a secure mobile authentication app for quick, push notification-based approval to verify your user's identity with a smartphone or other device.

Before using the AnyConnect VPN Secure Mobility client, enroll a smartphone or other device in Duo MFA. All AnyConnect VPN sessions will be self-authorized from your phone or other Duo enrolled device.

To improve our security posture, UC Davis Health has incorporated Duo Security as a multi-factor authentication solution to access EPCS, Office 365, VPN, HS Apps, and other applications from off-site locations. Duo helps to verify identification by combining username and password (something you know) with cell phone or landline (something you have). This ensures that you are the person trying to access your account.
