YubiKey Gets SC Magazine Five-Star Recognition

“Weaknesses: None.”  When someone reviews your product, that’s a nice way for the write-up to start.

Earlier this month, SC Magazine gave YubiKey 4 a five-star rating and tagged it a Best Buy in authentication. We don’t spend a lot of time patting ourselves on the back, but this honor recognizes goals we have always strived to achieve: versatility, reliability, ruggedness, low-cost, open source compatibility, ease-of-use.

And for many, it might seem unfair when a reviewer runs over your tech product with their car, but during this review that actually happened in the course of evaluating the key’s durability.  And guess what, the YubiKey brushed off a bit of asphalt and kept on authenticating.

“Every organization considering two-factor authentication should have a very close look at YubiKey” Peter Stephenson wrote in his review. “The YubiKey 4 is slick and, while it has not changed materially over the years, it has added some new features and has become more reliable, if that was possible.”

Stephenson’s review lays out some of what we think are our best qualities. Those that show we have the ability to not only adapt to the security pressures exerted by modern authentication requirements, but to serve a wide-range of use cases and end-user technical abilities.

From static passwords, to OTPs to FIDO U2F support, the YubiKey includes a range of features that also extends to encryption and code-signing. During the coming year, we’ll be adding more new cool features, so stay tuned! Thank you SC Magazine for the recognition! And to the rest of you, check out the full review!
