At a ceremony in Stockholm in early February, Yubico’s CEO and Co-founder, Stina Ehrensvärd, was awarded ‘Business Game Changer of the Year’ by top Swedish businesses for Yubico’s standards work and the company’s vision and execution to modernize hardware authentication. To quote the panel of judges, The winner has infused courage in its own organisation to contribute to a solution for one the biggest problems in our modern society; stolen login credentials. In close collaboration with the tech giants, her company has developed a new global internet security standard for securing access to online services for millions of people around the world.

On February 12, at The European Information Security Summit (TEISS), Yubico and the YubiKey brought home the Most Innovative Product or Service of the year award.
