CU*Answers recently announced that it has selected Cisco DUO for multifactor authentication (MFA). Cisco DUO was chosen for its security, user convenience, compatibility, and ease of deployment. “The current IT security climate demands that MFA be in place and the Cisco DUO product meets the need that is expected in the financial industry,” said Chris Shelton, VP of Network Infrastructure.

Network Services, a division of CU*Answers, has been implementing and supporting DUO for managed clients and the opportunity to use the same product for its needs was an important factor. “Streamlining and deepening the support capability of the team by using the same product we recommend to clients will only help us provide a higher level of service,” added Sarah Sweet, Manager of the Client Support and Operations team.
