Yubico and DS3 Partner to Offer YubiKey Authentication

PALO ALTO, Calif. and STOCKHOLM, Feb. 09, 2011 — Yubico, a leading provider of easy and secure login solutions, and Data Security Systems Solutions Pte Ltd (aka DS3), a leader in end-to-end security and large-scale multi-factor authentication, announced today that the YubiKey USB authentication key is now supported on DS3’s authentication server.

“With its ease of use, the confirmation button for higher security and the ability to ship YubiKeys by mail in a standard envelope lowering the deployment costs significantly, the YubiKey is a great complement to our existing offering of authentication methods,” said Tan teik Guan, CEO of DS3.

The YubiKey simplifies the process of logging in with a One Time Password token, as it does not require the user to re-type long pass codes from a display device into the login field of the computer. The YubiKey is inserted in the USB-port of any computer and the OTP is generated and automatically entered with a simple touch of a button on the YubiKey, without the need for any client software or drivers. The rugged, ultra-thin, battery-free, crush safe, and waterproof design has also been fundamental to the success of the YubiKey, currently used by over 10,000 customers globally.

“We are pleased to partner with DS3 to offer their customers unmatched ease of use and low deployment costs, and the Yubico community a new proven authentication server choice,” said Stina Ehrensvärd, CEO and Founder, Yubico.

The joint solution will be demonstrated at the RSA Conference in San Francisco Feb. 14-18, in the DS3 booth 2123.
