With IT security breaches becoming a staple in daily news reports, organizations big and small alike need to ramp up their defense. More than 95% of all IT breaches happen when a user credential or server gets hacked. While the YubiKey protects user accounts from remote hijacking, millions of servers storing sensitive data still lack physical security.

Hardware security modules (HSMs) offer the physical protection of servers, but are historically limited by its cost, size, and performance. The YubiHSM 2 breaks that mold with its extensive range of use cases. Applications include protecting data centers, cloud server infrastructures, manufacturing and industrial products and services, and many more.

The YubiHSM 2 delivers practical security to a wide variety of server environments with unrivaled affordability, convenience, and ultra-portability (it sits inside a USB-A port!). Moving beyond the features of the first generation YubiHSM, the YubiHSM 2 adds asymmetric cryptography and more to its list of capabilities.

After holding a successful closed beta for YubiHSM 2, we were thrilled to see great feedback from our participants, which include the world’s leading online services, software companies, and research institutions. Today, we are excited to announce that we are running an open beta for the YubiHSM 2, and we invite everyone to apply for a slot (spaces are limited)!

Learn more about the YubiHSM 2 or submit your application to participate in the open beta here. We look forward to hearing your feedback!
