Every year, some of Europe’s most elite security leaders — hailing from private and public sectors, academia, end-user companies, consulting communities, and analyst firms — gather to evaluate hundreds of SC Magazine Europe Award nominations. This panel of judges decides which products, professionals, and services best enhance various aspects of enterprise security. The Multifactor Solution category acknowledges products that provide enhanced security to end users by offering credentials for access to an authenticator or authentication server. Not only are judges advised to review the submission materials, but they are also asked to consider additional information such as analyst reports and/or product reviews.

The YubiKey 4 Series comes in three different form factors, all supporting the same multiple authentication protocols, to meet the needs of every enterprise and individual. To learn more about the award-winning YubiKey 4 Series, read more here.
