Duo Security and Yubico

Proven in even the most security-conscious environments, Yubico and Duo Security provide an advanced authentication solution for every organization. The combination of Duo Security and Yubico offers strong multi-factor authentication that is complete, compatible, and cost-effective.

Duo and YubiKey deliver strong authentication that’s highly secure and easy for users

Every user needs strong authentication to access vital applications, services, and data. Duo and YubiKey combine centralized, intelligent security policies, broad compatibility and easy integration with a consistent authentication flow users will appreciate. Together Duo and Yubikey share a focus on the highest standards of security to help organizations implement a Zero Trust model across the enterprise. That journey starts with a multi-factor authentication process that works for everyone from security admins to execs to a user who just joined the organization.


Stronger security together

Authentication that works, every time and everywhere

Protect all users, from entry-level to executives and security administrators, with robust and reliable authentication they can trust. Safeguard users from phishing and eliminate account takeovers with strong authentication combining contextual software with hardware-backed security. Combining the might of Duo Security’s modern adaptive MFA with Yubico’s range of YubiKeys that are proven to be 100% phishing resistant provides a strength-in-depth approach to authentication that enterprises can count on.


“Together, Duo and Yubico build upon Zero Trust core tenants to provide stronger, smarter authentication in an easy to use and extremely effective way; achieving the highest levels of assurance for trusted access.”

Complete

Proven to the highest level of authentication
Yubico and Duo Security’s combined MFA technologies work together to deliver a joint solution that even government agencies count on. Duo and YubiKey meet the federal guidelines outlined in NIST SP 800-63-3 Authenticator Assurance Level 3 (AAL3). This is the highest identity assurance level available today.

In addition, Yubico and Duo Security support the FIDO2/WebAuthn security protocols. Since this is an open standard, there are no drivers required. Users can securely log into accounts on laptops and smartphones with a supported web browser, operating system, and Yubico’s security key, the YubiKey.Not only can authentication be achieved through a simple touch of the security key, FIDO2 also guarantees security admins that the user is present as they authenticate – building trust in their identity as they access critical systems and highly sensitive data.

Compatible

Works with all your apps, operating systems and devices
Implementing multi-factor authentication requires close integration with existing security infrastructure. Identity access must work seamlessly with the applications, operating systems and devices users depend on for productivity, as well as the layered security stack already in place.

In addition, users want a consistent authentication process to log into the applications they use on a daily basis. Security admins need central policies to govern access across the organization—gaps or different access flows add risk, complexity, and cost.

That’s why Duo Security and Yubico offer compatibility across major browsers and operating systems, including but not limited to Microsoft Windows, MacOS, and Linux. In combination with a broad range of device and application integrations, organizations can ensure the correct access privileges for their users, and prevent phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks. Together Duo and YubiKey provide wide compatibility for today—and a path for future upgrades to systems and new applications.
