YubiKey for political campaigns and elections
Defending global democracy
Secure sensitive information across political campaigns and government elections
Easy, efficient, and strong authentication ensures protection against domestic and foreign threats by securing sensitive information and high-risk individuals.
Ensure email confidentiality
Foreign hackers are known to use email to infiltrate the political ecosystem. Passwords and SMS-based two-factor authentication (2FA) are easily phishable and insufficient to protect highly sensitive emails.
The YubiKey offers an added level of security for sensitive and confidential email. It is proven to eliminate phishing and account takeovers across GSuite, Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Office 365.
Secure access to computers
If not secured properly, laptops can provide entry points for external and insider threats leading to leaked campaign information that may have political, legal and financial repercussions.
The YubiKey offers secure access for laptops, protecting on-device applications and information such as campaign strategy, competitive analysis and fundraising data. Multiple login options include authentication for Macs, local Windows, Azure Active Directory, Active Directory and Microsoft Accounts.
Protect voter databases
Voter registration databases are a high-value target for attackers looking to disrupt democratic processes. If logins aren’t sufficiently secured, hackers can steal, corrupt or manipulate sensitive voter data.
The YubiKey provides strong hardware-based authentication to secure voter registration databases against hacking. Sensitive information and applications are always protected with a simple, cost-effective and standards-compliant solution.
Stop social media takeovers
Past elections have seen hackers compromise social media accounts connected to campaigns and elections. Political candidates and parties are especially vulnerable and need to secure against social account takeovers, as there can be potentially damaging personal, political and legal ramifications.
