YubiEnterprise Subscription

Flexible licensing approach to obtain industry-leading and trusted YubiKey hardware authentication, providing great flexibility and complete peace of mind.

Benefit from YubiKeys as a service

Your business and employees are constantly evolving, from new hires and employee churn, to remote and hybrid work environments, and support for new infrastructure needs. And with users working across desktop, mobile, shared workstations, and using the latest devices and modern authentication, you need maximum flexibility in choosing YubiKey form factors based on device type and user preferences.

YubiEnterprise Subscription offers flexible purchasing options to buy YubiKeys as a service per user. Choose any form factor, and easily upgrade to the latest YubiKeys when introduced. And, you can easily replace lost or stolen YubiKeys, all with predictable OPEX spending that allows for a one-time funding request and sets you up to more confidently navigate the changing cyberthreat and compliance landscape.

Deliver to meet user preferences on YubiKey form factors

With users switching to modern devices such as laptops and smartphones on different platforms, or simply having a preference for a certain YubiKey, you can give your users flexibility to opt for any form factor within the tier of Subscription that you’ve chosen that works with the devices they love. No more needing to guess exactly how many of a certain form factor to purchase upfront! With Subscription, you maintain flexibility and also give your users a wide range of choice, increasing their satisfaction, productivity, and adoption of strong security.

Low cost to entry, high availability 

For less than the price of a cup of coffee per month, your organization can give employees access to modern, easy-to-use YubiKey  authentication for protection of data, identities and applications. With YubiEnterprise Subscription, initial payments are significantly reduced in procuring YubiKeys, helping organizations maintain healthy balance sheets. And, get additional discounts for purchasing backup YubiKeys to enable easy self-service account recovery.

Predictable cost

Leverage a subscription pricing model on a per user basis, and experience predictable OpEx spending. No more having to go back and rally for more budget as your business needs evolve, or new compliance regulations enter the market and mandate fast action to stay in compliance and avoid penalties. Easily streamline procurement of YubiKeys for 500 users or more by purchasing a 3-year term. Lock in the price and budget for the next 3 years, and gain the flexibility to add more users to the same subscription (co-term). And an upfront commitment with a phased rollout in the first year offers the volume discounts and additional cost benefits, while ensuring you have room to move as your business does. The YubiEnterprise Subscription ‘as-a-service’ model delivers unsurpassed flexibility for the foreseeable future, at an optimized cost, and allows you to experience a future-proofed security investment.

Faster time to value 

The ability to switch security key form factors means an organization can experience faster implementations, leading to faster time to value. Keep 5% extra stock of YubiKeys at no additional cost to accommodate any urgent needs. And, choose any YubiKey now and upgrade easily to the latest YubiKeys (within the same subscription tier) as they become available. Finally, with the warranty and technical support extended over the entire term duration, you and your organization will experience  complete peace of mind throughout.

Agility to support hiring needs

As your organization experiences seasonal peaks or, at times, employee churn, YubiEnterprise Subscription allows you to stay agile cost-effectively. Customers are eligible to upgrade up to 25% of YubiKeys for subscribed users per year and can also be used to replace for lost, stolen, or employee churn reasons. And to ensure new employees get on-boarded quickly and easily, and that strong authentication adoption is high, YubiEnterprise Subscription includes easy access to Yubico security experts with always-available Priority support.

Reassign Subscription to a new user

Move away from a perpetual, CAPEX-oriented buying approach to a more flexible Subscription approach that focuses on number of users, not number of YubiKeys. And with the 25% upgrade or replacement pool, you can not only factor in fluctuations of hiring and churn, but as users leave the organization, you can easily reassign your subscription to a new user. This greatly enhances your ability to pivot to new directions as strategic business decisions dictate. And, the employees who have left the company are allowed to take the YubiKey and use it for their personal applications.

Choose from several tier options to suit your business

Customers have several tiers from which to choose, and can opt from any of the Advanced, Premium or FIPS tiers as needs arise. This means that right from the very start customers have the flexibility to choose any form factor at the time of fulfillment.  And, as the latest technology and innovation is introduced, it’s easy to upgrade to the latest YubiKeys for your users.

Proven, easy-to-use security that’s trusted by the
world’s leading companies

Prevent man-in-the-middle attacks and eliminate account takeovers

Any software downloaded on a computer or phone is vulnerable to malware and hackers. The YubiKey is based on hardware with the authentication secret stored on a separate secure chip built into the YubiKey, with no connection to the internet so it cannot be copied or stolen. Additionally, centralized servers with stored credentials can be breached. With the YubiKey, the data is encrypted with strong public key cryptography where only the public key is stored on the server, eliminating risks.

Reduces IT costs

The YubiKey dramatically reduces the number one IT support cost—password resets—which cost Microsoft over $12M per month. By switching from mobile one time passwords (OTPs) to YubiKeys, Google saw the following results:

  • Zero account takeovers
  • 4x faster logins
  • 92% fewer IT support calls
Easy to use, fast, and reliable

Users don’t need to install anything and can use the YubiKey in minutes. And the YubiKey is reliable because it does not require a battery or network connectivity, so it’s always on and accessible.

Easy to deploy

IT can deploy YubiKeys in days, not months. A single key, through its flexible multi-protocol capabilities, can work out-of-the-box with hundreds of systems, both cloud and on-premises. This eliminates the need for costly integrations or separate devices for each system, and can support passwordless, strong two-factor and multi-factor authentication scenarios.

Trusted authentication leader

Yubico is the principal inventor of the WebAuthn/FIDO2 and U2F authentication standards adopted by the FIDO alliance and is the first company to produce the U2F security
key and a multiprotocol FIDO2 authenticator. YubiKeys are produced in our offices in the USA and Sweden, maintaining security and quality control over the entire manufacturing process.
