    Make security solutions technology stronger

    Legacy authentication methods such as SMS-based, knowledge based authentication (KBA), email, voice confirmation, etc. are not secure. Additionally, employee-owned mobile devices for 2FA create security risk and usability issues especially when a mobile device is lost or damaged.

    YubiKeys feature modern protocols like FIDO2 and WebAuthn, as well as OTP, SmartCard (PIV), OpenPGP, and earlier FIDO versions. A single key scales to hundreds of applications and services, concurrently supporting current applications and authentication methods, and advanced and emerging protocols.

    Protect your Intellectual Property

    Code, patents, blueprints, schematics and sensitive financial data are at the heart of successful technology companies. Not securing this information properly against phishing and account takeovers can have big legal and financial repercussions.

    Using strong public key cryptography, YubiKey strengthens security for 2FA and MFA for applications and services such as GitHub and SSH. YubiKey also offers secure access to laptops and desktops, protecting on-device applications and information. Multiple login options include authentication for Macs, local Windows, Microsoft Entra ID, and Microsoft Accounts.

    Offer the best user experience

    SMS, one time passwords and mobile push authenticators interrupt user workflows and reduce productivity. Having to type in one time codes or go through extra steps can get frustrating, especially for recurring logins.

    Yubikeys offer an easy and frictionless user experience. To authenticate, users simply tap or touch their security key. YubiKeys don’t require batteries, have no breakable screens, don’t need a cellular connection, and are water-resistant and crush-resistant.

    Drive high security ROI

    Many applications that support OTP and other legacy methods don’t yet support modern protocols like FIDO2 and WebAuthn. A rip and replace of legacy methods overnight is not pragmatic and can be costly. At the same time, having users carry multiple authentication devices is not desirable either.

    YubiKeys drive the best security ROI with unparalleled versatility, frictionless user experience and multi-protocol support. Organizations have seen a 92% reduction in help desk costs, strong rise in user adoption, and a sharp decline in account takeovers.
