YubiKeys provide a highly secure and easy-to-use solution for mobile restricted environments.
Secure Authentication without a Cellular Connection or Mobile Device
Unlike SMS codes and mobile push authentication, YubiKeys do not require a cellular connection to operate. In fact, they don’t even require batteries or have any other external dependency. Simply plug the key into a USB port on the device and touch to authenticate.
Highly Secure and Minimizes Insider Threat
YubiKeys meet NIST’s highest level of assurance (AAL3). In contrast, NIST recommends deprecating SMS-based authentication since it is highly insecure. YubiKeys use public key cryptography to ensure accounts cannot be phished or breached via social engineering. More importantly, since YubiKeys don’t have any cameras, microphones, or network connections, data confidentiality is ensured.
YubiKeys offer the best ROI in Mobile-Restricted Environments
The combination of a frictionless user experience, preventing data breaches, cost savings on mobile device and service plans, and the YubiKey’s versatility with multi-protocol support results in astonishing ROI for any mobile-restricted environment.
