Our two-factor authentication service, which uses Duo Security, asks individuals logging in to confirm their identity using a smartphone, via text, via automated voice calls, or on a secured kiosk (for certain staff).

DUO Security is currently used for BUWorks, the Student Link, our VPNs, Faculty & Staff Link, BU Google Mail & Apps, Office 365 and currently being deployed for all BU applications
