The internet was designed for sharing, not security. And as more and more sophisticated services move online, so do fraudsters.
Compromised identities have reached a level where the weaknesses in usernames and passwords as well as traditional software security solutions have been exposed. There is a growing demand for strong two-factor authentication, but the more secure hardware devices are too complicated to use in general and expensive to scale for the majority of users and services.
YUBIKEY – YOUR UBIQUITOUS KEY
We founded Yubico in 2007 with a prototype of our YubiKey invention and the mission to make secure online identities truly ubiquitous.
You can get started right away by ordering our products from our web store. With free access to our open source library and our YubiCloud hosted validation service, evaluation and implementation of the YubiKey can be done in minutes.
Even though we offer the market’s lowest cost option we do not compromise on security, quality or ethics. We manufacture our YubiKeys in Sweden and USA with best practices security processes and with respect for our people and the environment.
With support from a thriving developers and partner community, the YubiKey is used for a range of enterprise, open source, and consumer applications, including remote access and VPN, online services, computer login, and password management. Developers collaborate via the Yubico Forum.
Proven by millions of users and 100,000 customers in 160 countries, ranging from individuals to 9 of the top 10 internet companies, we continue to refine our inventions. Our vision is to enable internet users to have one single and secure key for securing access across from any device to any number of services. To realize this dream, we developed our next-generation YubiKey in close collaboration with internet thought leaders, and we are a key contributor to the FIDO Alliance U2F (Universal 2nd Factor) open standards specifications.
Yubico is proud to be a member of the following open identity standards organizations:
