Cloud-based trusted access provider Duo Security wanted to maintain a secure environment for high-risk teams that have access to customer information or who regularly open files from third parties. In addition to protecting its business, Duo sought a better deployment and support experience for employees, with little impact on productivity. By switching from Mac devices and the macOS to Chrome Enterprise and Pixelbooks, Duo takes advantage of security features baked into Chrome OS, protecting its own platform as well as its customers.

Chrome Enterprise results

  • Reduced time setting up and troubleshooting devices
  • Added automatic security features that don’t need complex and time-consuming setup
  • Created a Chrome extension to evaluate browser extension security
  • Saved time previously spent on managing security vulnerabilities

Device setup time reduced from three hours to 25 minutes

“Chrome Enterprise adds extra security features that protect employees and our platform, while offering easy support tools for our IT team.”

Josh Yavor, Director of Corporate Security, Duo Security

Saving time with security features baked into Chrome OS

Duo uses security features that are built in to Chrome Enterprise and kept current with automatic updates. The Verified Access feature ensures that any device accessing Duo data and services is managed by the company, while the Verified Boot feature prevents tampering with the Chrome OS.
