“Cybersecurity is the biggest geopolitical issue of our time,” Duo Security CEO Dug Song said, according to TechCrunch. “When Duo started, our mission was to democratize security. Now we’re securing democracy. Duo has only scratched the surface of addressing the need to deliver simple and effective security globally. There are many more organizations that Duo could help protect, and in the journey ahead, we hope to reach them all.”
