IBM and Yubico Simplify Strong Security for Enterprises

Raise your hand if you’re a fan of security products that live up to their name and also deliver a delightful user experience! You know we are, and that’s why we’re happy to announce a joint effort with IBM to deliver FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) protection with the YubiKey through the IBM Security Access Manager (ISAM). The FIDO U2F open authentication standard provides the highest level of security assurance and protects against phishing and man-in-the middle attacks aimed at stealing credentials and gaining access to enterprise systems and services.

If you’re an ISAM customer, and are currently evaluating two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA) options, then look no further. IBM has integrated the strongest level of 2FA to ISAM with YubiKey and FIDO U2F support. The YubiKey FIDO U2F Settings Configurator for ISAM is available in the IBM Security App Exchange, a marketplace where developers across the industry can share applications based on IBM Security technologies.

The new app enables ISAM Administrators to quickly and easily reconfigure the ISAM appliance to enforce FIDO U2F with YubiKey attestation in a matter of minutes. From there, end users are able to register their own YubiKeys for easy, secure access to any systems you have connected for Single Sign-On (SSO).The YubiKey offers a frictionless authentication experience for ISAM admins, users throughout the organization, and external customers.

For a limited time, we’re offering ISAM Admins the YubiKey Experience Pack for $100* ($268 value), which includes one of all six YubiKey form factors. Use them to test out the integration in your environment, and let us know how we can help when you’re ready to rollout the YubiKey to your organization.

*Offer valid through 11:59pm PT December 15, 2017, while supplies last.
