    The ideal hardware security key to secure data against phishing and improve agent productivity

    YubiKeys offer phishing-resistant multi-factor and passwordless authentication for in-person,

    hybrid, and remote call center environments ensuring data security and high productivity.

    Many global regulations such as PCI DSS call for mobile-free environments across call centers as using mobile phones for authentication is not optimal, given poor levels of security, distractions, and reduced agent productivity.

    YubiKeys meet the strictest global authentication requirements including PCI DSS 4.0 and are highly suitable for mobile-free requirements and shared workstations typically found across call centers. They offer an exceptional user experience, ensuring that your customer data is always protected and your employees are highly productive.

    Benefits from the phishing-resistant YubiKey

    Secure confidential customer data

    The use of cellular devices for authentication across call centers creates a security risk, allowing users to take photos of customer data. Mobile-based authenticators are also highly susceptible to phishing attacks, account takeovers, man-in-the-middle (MiTM) attacks and SIM Swapping. To ensure the confidentiality and integrity of customer data and to maximize productivity, the YubiKey provides phishing-resistant MFA to help organizations secure sensitive and confidential PII customer data, and satisfy global regulations such as PCI DSS 4.0

    Protect shared workstation environments

    A single YubiKey works across multiple shared devices including desktops, laptops, mobile, tablets, and notebooks, enabling users to utilize the same key as they navigate between devices, and helping you deploy phishing-resistant MFA at scale across shared workstations that are typically found across call center environments. YubiKeys are also easily re-programmed, making them highly suitable for rotating-shift and temporary workers across these environments.

    Improve efficiency and productivity with enhanced user experience

    Not all forms of multi-factor authentication (MFA) offer the optimal balance of strong security with a fast and easy user experience that enables high productivity. Mobile authenticators typically increase the number of steps in the authentication process, requiring users to wait for SMS, OTP or push app codes.

    The YubiKey offers strong MFA and passwordless authentication with just one touch or tap of the YubiKey, and is 4 times faster than typing in an OTP, ensuring that your users can quickly access the services they require, driving high productivity. YubiKeys with NFC capability are also highly suitable for call centers that have USB port restrictions.

    Reduce IT support costs and drive high ROI

    The combination of frictionless user experience, data breach prevention, mobile device and service cost savings, and the YubiKeys’ versatility with multi-protocol support results in high ROI for any call center environment. 

    In addition to reducing risk by 99.9%, the YubiKey has been shown to drive a 203% 3-year ROI and a drop in password-related help desk tickets by 75%.
