Virginia Commonwealth University took the plunge and implemented system-wide multi-factor authentication in 2016-2017 using DUO Security, after multiple previous years of sluggish adoption to select high-risk systems. This presentation will detail the challenges of garnering app owner cooperation, securing faculty and staff accounts without overburdening students, and the challenges of integrating a one-stop MFA solution into an extremely heterogenous IT environment. The deliverables and measurable results thus far in VCU's environment will also be discussed, and a Q&A portion for those considering MFA implementation will also be held at the end.
