Authentication for mobile restricted environments
Secure authentication anywhere, anytime
Mobile-free, secure authentication
Environments where mobile use is restricted are unable to use most MFA methods such as SMS, mobile authenticator apps or mobile push. The YubiKey offers easy and secure authentication when there is no cellular connection or a mobile device.
Secure Authentication without a Cellular Connection or Mobile Device
Most mobile-based authentication methods fail when the cellular signal is weak or unavailable. Services such as SMS are not very reliable and often users can be waiting for several minutes to receive a code. Additionally, many environments restrict mobile device use altogether making most MFA methods unusable.
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 your device and touch to authenticate.
Minimize insider threats with high assurance authentication
Where sensitive data is at stake such as in medical clinics or R&D labs, data leakage via images captured from a mobile device pose a very high risk. Allowing mobile devices for authentication enables perpetrators to easily capture sensitive data on camera without being noticed.
The YubiKey meets NIST’s highest level of assurance (AAL3) and uses public key cryptography to ensure accounts cannot be phished or breached via social engineering. More importantly, since YubiKeys have no cameras, microphones, or network connections, data confidentiality is ensured.
Eliminate mobile related costs and enjoy high ROI
New regulations increasingly require employers to pay for mobile devices and service plans for any work related usage. Additionally, employers may be held liable if they manage or wipe a user’s personal mobile device.
