The Modern Workplace Journey: Experience MFA Everywhere with PingID and the YubiKey

October 24, 2018 3 minute read

One of the most frequent questions I’m asked to talk about is what sets the YubiKey apart from other security keys. At Yubico, we pride ourselves on making the highest quality, most durable and innovative authentication devices on the market, including the first-ever multi-protocol security keys which combine FIDO2, U2F, one-time password (OATH-HOTP and OATH-TOTP), PIV-compatible smart card, and OpenPGP in one authenticator. This multi-protocol support is a critical feature for organizations in the process of modernizing strong authentication for everything that employees, vendors, and users access on a daily basis, as one single YubiKey can meet varying authentication needs.

The journey to modernizing authentication also often starts with finding the right Identity Access Management (IAM) solution, which is why Ping Identity, the leader in Identity Defined Security solutions, is a critical member of the Yubico Ecosystem. Yubico is excited to work with Ping Identity to strengthen the authentication choices for PingID customers.

Starting today, current and prospective PingID customers considering a YubiKey implementation are invited to learn more about our joint solution through Ping Identity’s YubiKey Experience Pack initiative. A co-branded experience pack will be available to PingID customers as a special complimentary offer designed for admins to experience the many benefits of our joint solution. Each pack features two (2) of our latest YubiKey 5 Series devices and a PingID Quick Start Guide. The YubiKey 5 Series supports two-factor, multi-factor and passwordless authentication, so as the future of authentication progresses toward passwordless logins, PingID customers will be equipped with an authentication device that can do it all.

Setting up YubiKey authentication with PingID is easy. Users can self-register the YubiKey with their PingID account without needing additional software or drivers.

“Ping Identity is committed to providing the most secure multi-factor authentication experience and emerging authentication standards for its customers,” stated Monica Hamilton, Head of Technology Alliances and Business Development at Ping Identity. “By working with Yubico, we are able to provide secure login options with a hardware device for added user convenience, especially in scenarios where a mobile phone cannot be utilized or is not preferred.”

Yubico is also thrilled to be one of Ping Identity’s Global Sponsors for IDENTIFY 2018. Today, we’re kicking off IDENTIFY San Francisco, and November 7 marks the third and final event in the series, IDENTIFY New York. Stop by our kiosk and chat with us about your journey to modernizing the workplace. Qualifying customers can request the YubiKey Experience Pack for PingID customers by contacting sales@pingidentity.com while supplies last! Learn more about how Yubico and Ping Identity work together.
