Hi Alastair,

Yes. Duo is required to authenticate. It is not an it is not an
alternative. Both a passphrase and a device is required.

"Two-factor authentication (2FA) strengthens access security by
requiring two methods (also referred to as factors) to verify your
identity. These factors can include something you know - like a
username and password, plus something you have - like a smartphone app
to approve authentication requests."

Kind regards,
