Critical infrastructure security
Modern hardware-backed phishing-resistant authentication
that stops modern cyber threats
Safeguarding vital sectors that humanity depends on with Zero Trust security
Across the globe there is an increasing number of malicious actors trying to cause mass disruption to public life and safety by targeting critical infrastructure with cyberattacks.
These sectors are vital because their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on a nation’s security or can pose a physical threat to human lives.

How do you ensure that no user or device is allowed into your network unless vetted?
Most cyberattacks, including ransomware, are caused by stolen credentials through phishing and simple human error. A core part of a successful cybersecurity zero trust approach depends on multi-factor authentication (MFA), but not all forms of MFA are created equal.
To protect against accounts takeovers from phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, modern phishing-resistant authentication and hardware-backed security are the best way to safeguard the most critical information, processes, and informational technology (IT), and operational technology (OT), and industrial control systems (ICS) that our society depends on.
Cyberthreats are on the rise. Yubico has you covered to protect against them.
Yubico solutions provide robust security at scale and accelerate Zero Trust with phishing-resistant authentication. They play a pivotal role in stopping phishing attacks and account takeovers before they start, and making the internet safer for everyone.
Protect user access to IT, OT and ICS systems with the YubiKey
Whether in an industrial environment or corporate office, the IP68-certified YubiKey–a hardware security key with multi-protocol support–offers the most secure hardware-bound authenticator to protect user access.
YubiKeys stops 99.9% (5) of account takeovers while delivering a 203% ROI, and protects existing infrastructure while enabling the move to stronger phishing-resistant methods either: Smart Card/PIV or FIDO.
Protect devices and machines with the YubiHSM
The world’s smallest HSM, YubiHSM 2, packs a lot of power, and offers game changing cryptographic protection for servers, applications, assembly lines, and computing devices.
Secure your public key infrastructure (PKI) environments, encrypt your files and databases, and securely sign code or any digital artifact to raise the bar for security for your critical infrastructure systems.

Yubico solutions ensure highest-assurance security. Secure user access to critical systems and data along the supply chain with the YubiKey for phishing-resistant MFA. Safeguard the assembly line, third-party access, intellectual property, and product integrity with the YubiHSM 2.
The digital transformation underway in financial services is placing heightened demands on
Healthcare institutions are challenged with providing high quality patient care and health services, while mitigating cybersecurity risks related to ransomware attacks and healthcare data breaches. Yubico can help you secure patient data privacy while ensuring compliance and strong security ROI.
For those in telecommunications leveraging mobile-based MFA, the YubiKey provides a phishing-proof layer of protection to safeguard people, technology, and data while ensuring the best security and user experience.
Defense and civilian agencies require highest-assurance authentication. Yubico offers DOD approved, FIPS 140-2 validated multi-factor authentication for non PIV/CAC eligible workers, mobile and BYOAD/BYOD, air-gapped/closed networks, privileged users, remote workers and more.
Boliden advances its reputation for innovation with YubiKeys
“YubiKeys are a big enabler for digitization. They protect the identity of the end user and make their life easier. If a company moves towards digitization, you have to do it securely. It was different 15 years ago, but since more and more tools and functions are cloud based, it’s essential to protect identities.”

Secure critical infrastructure and invaluable resources
Yubico solutions enable you to securely protect people, data, and systems all across the globe from modern cyber threats. Learn more about how phishing-resistant hardware-backed security covers a variety of business scenarios.
Critical infrastructure cybersecurity that meets evolving compliance regulations
Yubico solutions ensure that your organization meets evolving compliance regulations with phishing-resistant security. Both the YubiKey and YubiHSM 2 come in FIPS 140-2 validated form factors, and the YubiKey meets NIST SP 800-63-3 Authenticator Assurance Level (AAL) 3 requirements. The YubiKey is also available in CSPN-validated form factors.
As part of the Enduring Security Framework (ESF), Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the National Security Agency (NSA) for identity and access management best practices are recommending phishing-resistant MFA for all critical infrastructure sectors.
Guideline 800-63-4 details digital identity guidelines designed to help strengthen digital identity assurance and authentication and the need for phishing-resistant MFA.
The EU Network and Information Security (NIS2) Directive Article 21 mandates the use of strong multi-factor authentication methods.
The Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB) released a report urgently recommending that more stringent authentication solutions be implemented, transitioning away from SMS-based MFA and instead adopting easy-to-use passwordless solutions such as FIDO compliant phishing-resistant methods.
The White House Executive Order (EO) 14028, Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity, and the OMB M-22-09 is raising the bar for MFA and leveraging a zero trust framework with phishing-resistant MFA respectively.
