Stop Account Takeovers
The key to truly secure MFA
Modern and secure authentication to protect
against account takeovers
Spending on cybersecurity keeps going up, but account takeover and phishing related breaches aren’t abating, because legacy 2FA/MFA methods remain vulnerable. Security you can trust requires a physical factor that is never fooled - such as the Yubikey.
Stop account takeovers and phishing
Fraudsters and hackers are getting smarter and more sophisticated. Account takeovers and breaches were up a whopping 424% in 2018 despite companies spending hundreds of billions of dollars to strengthen their cybersecurity postures.
Many organizations have successfully eliminated account takeovers with the YubiKey. Even if a user is tricked into giving up their personal info, the YubiKey isn’t fooled. User credentials are built on strong public-key cryptography and bound to the service, offering account takeover protection by ensuring that only the real site can authenticate with a key.
Make existing security solutions stronger
Passwords offer little if any protection against account takeovers. Research by Google, NYU, and UCSD based on 350,000 real-world hijacking attempts has proven that on-device prompts, secondary emails, SMS codes and phone numbers aren’t as effective as a security key in preventing targeted attacks.
Using strong public key cryptography, Yubikey strengthens security for 2FA and MFA, and makes passwordless a reality by requiring a physical key as the authentication controlling factor.

Offer the best user experience
SMS codes, one-time passwords, and mobile push authenticators all require additional cumbersome steps while not being very secure. Waiting for and typing in one-time codes, or going through extra steps creates user fatigue and decreases workforce productivity and MFA adoption.
With YubiKeys, users login with a single touch or tap. They don’t require connectivity to work and are always available and ready for authentication. Strong hardware-based security is combined with an intuitive user experience that’s 4 times faster than SMS.
