The YubiKey: “The only key needed”
The YubiKey’s ease-of-use helped accelerate adoption at ZorgSaam and strengthen security. The company found that once users realized how fast and easy it was to access systems with the YubiKey, they embraced it and started to wear the YubiKey on their badge key rings. In addition to its user-friendly design, IT likes the YubiKey’s ruggedness, lack of battery, and no moving parts, which makes it easy to deploy and maintain.
In the future, ZorgSaam may also use the YubiKey NEO to allow integration with physical access based on NFC. “Although other systems in our organisation are now largely point solutions, we want to extend the use of YubiKey whenever systems are being replaced,” said Johan Terlouw, Manager of Back Office ICT Services. “Down the road the YubiKey might even become the only key needed to gain access to ZorgSaam.”
