Gluu partners with Duo Security; Embeds Two-Factor Authentication

Michael Schwartz September 14, 2012

September 14, 2012 – Austin, TX – Gluu today announced a partnership with Duo Security to embed support for Duo’s Two-Factor Authentication in the OX open source cloud identity platform. Now organizations that use the OX platform to control access to OpenID Connect websites or API’s, can enable or enforce the use of two-factor authentication prior to authorization.

“Our partnership with Duo Security unites us with one of the most flexible, easy to use two-factor authentication platforms on the market,” said Gluu CEO, Mike Schwartz. “We are using the Duo service ourselves, so it made sense to make Duo the first third-party authentication module to publish for the OX platform. I love the flexibility of Duo. Every day new authentication mechanisms are being invented, and I know Duo will be right there applying these mechanisms to services that are fun for people to use.”

Duo two-factor authentication gives administrators the ability to push login or transaction details to any smartphone for immediate, one-tap authentication approval. Older devices like simple cell phones and landlines can be sent passcodes via SMS text message or phone call.

“We’re excited to be working with Gluu,” said Dug Song, CEO of Duo Security. “This partnership will allow thousands of people to access authentication security that has historically only been available to large businesses with deep pockets and large IT departments.”
