Duo Security Case Study

Certified Oil Company: Providing Quality Fuel, Receiving Quality Security


This case study of Certified Oil Company is based on a November 2016 survey of Duo Security customers by TechValidate, a 3rd-party research service.

“Duo Platform Edition gives us the visibility and control to ensure that trusted users on healthy devices are accessing the right applications.”


The biggest challenge for Certified Oil was that they needed to ensure the successful adoption of security products company-wide. Therefore, it was critical to them to find an easy-to-use solution.

Use Case


Certified Oil has a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy where their employees have both personal and corporate issued devices accessing corporate resources. They also have a VPN that protects their on-premise applications.

Certified Oil primarily uses Duo Platform edition to protect remote access into their organization.


Certified Oil chose Duo because our Platform edition helps them meet compliance requirements such as PCI DSS.

Duo Platform also provided key features that they would have gotten from a vulnerability assessment or endpoint protection platform.

Certified Oil has fully leveraged many Platform features such as Endpoint Visibility for their organization.

Certified Oil loves the fact that Duo Platform edition can help them with setting a custom policy for their users, groups, or applications.

Duo Security has proved to be a good return on investment for Certified Oil as they have seen a payback period in less than 2 months of purchasing Platform Edition.
