    Diagram with the key benefits of YubiEnterprise Subscription

    YubiKey as a Service accelerates business

    Simplify security with a subscription

    “The subscription offered a lower cost to entry, through an as-a-service model, and offered many benefits beyond pricing. We have greater flexibility on when to take in additional inventory, access to added YubiKey stock and easy access to Yubico technical support.”

    – Large telecommunications company

    “The subscription gave us the flexibility to lock in pricing and budget, immediately distribute YubiKeys to 80% of our users and roll out the remaining 20% in the future as the IT project came to a close. And delivered the ability to easily adopt newer YubiKeys, such as the YubiKey Bio Series, as it becomes available.”

    – County in Ohio; home to approximately 150,000 people

    “The subscription offered the pricing options we needed to outfit each of our users with both a primary and backup YubiKey.

    – Large Healthcare organization

    “The 25% replacement / upgrade at no cost component of the subscription was a huge benefit as we wanted additional YubiKeys in the future.”

    – One of the U.S.’ fastest-growing counties; home to 4.5M people

    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.
