    Not all MFA is created equal

    We know traditional authentication methods haven’t always been the most user-friendly. In fact, did you know that 59% of people still rely on username and password to authenticate?* This method has proven to not be effective against bad actors, which is why we created the YubiKey—it makes logging into your accounts simple and secure.

    Here’s how YubiKeys have changed the game for secure login

    YubiKeys and Security Keys: 

    • Are easy to use—simply touch the YubiKey to verify and you’re in. Provide modern, phishing-resistant MFA 
    • Are reliable and can be set up in minutes
    • Eliminate the need to reach for your phone to open an app, or memorizing and typing in a code—simply touch the YubiKey to verify and you’re in
    • Are trusted—You don’t need to use the YubiKey every time you log in. Once an app or service is verified, it can stay verified. It’s that easy
    • Use NFC for mobile authentication
    • Option to leave plugged into your laptop or USB hub 
    • Are a rugged and durable solution (even survives the washing machine!) 
    • Don’t require batteries, WiFi or network connection 

    Enterprises that eliminate passwords report better business and security outcomes

    New research finds organizations using passwordless technologies experience the fewest phishing attacks, are more productive and achieve greater levels of employee satisfaction.

    Securing a new device made easy

    Did you know that, within the last 2 years, nearly 40% of people admit to having broken their mobile phone and nearly 30% have lost it (a device individuals and organizations commonly use to authenticate).*
    With the YubiKey, there’s no hassle! No matter what device you use, the YubiKey provides:

    • Your portable root of trust that provides secure access to your accounts from desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones seamlessly, instead of having to rely on a phone for authentication
    • A simplified strong authentication solution when onboarding new devices 
    • Strong protection for your credentials as they reside on something that isn’t tied to any system or server
    • Ability to register multiple keys with most services providing you with a primary and a backup key 

    Securing employees made easy

    With employees busier than ever, 9 out of 10 cybersecurity breaches are caused by their mistakes** and what’s more, over 54% of employees are not required to go through cybersecurity training on a frequent basis.*

    The YubiKey protects from human error by eliminating “MFA fatigue”. Remove the guesswork and ensure your employees, and only your employees, are the ones getting in.

    Low friction authentication = reduced support

    Authentication needs to be easy, but also the highest level of security. The YubiKey achieves both. In a study by EMA, surveyed businesses using YubiKeys reported they received the lowest frequency of support tickets, taking a massive burden off of support teams when compared to basic and legacy MFA methods.
