Phishing-resistant MFA for your hybrid and remote workforce
Drive productivity while ensuring strong security
Secure hybrid and remote workers against cyber security threats
Yubico helps organizations of all sizes modernize workplace login and minimize cyber risk for hybrid and remote workers with the YubiKey, by providing phishing-resistant MFA access to business applications across employee and personal devices. YubiKeys offer the highest assurance security and the best user experience, helping organizations drive high productivity while protecting your employees against phishing attacks and account takeovers.

With employees geographically dispersed perimeter security and legacy forms of authentication are no longer adequate for protection.
Learn best practices to secure your workforce with phishing-resistant MFA.
Enable secure MFA access for IAM and IDP platforms
Most leading hybrid and cloud environments leverage Identity and Access Management (IAM) and Identity Provider (IDP) platforms to enable employees to work without the hassle of multiple usernames and passwords. Using multi-factor authentication (MFA) with these services will enhance your security posture.
Enhance security across your entire organization by turning on phishing-resistant MFA with the YubiKey. Leading IAM platforms such as Axiad, Duo, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure Active Directory, Okta Workforce Identity, OneLogin, Ping Identity platform and RSA SecurIDⓇ Suite natively support YubiKeys, and can be used for Single Single On (SSO) to messaging and video conferencing apps such as Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts and Zoom.
Protect hybrid and remote workers against account takeovers
Two-factor authentication methods such as one-time passcodes and on-device prompts are tied to mobile devices and can be compromised by malware and SIM-swapping. Research by Google, NYU, and UCSD based on 350,000 real-world hijacking attempts has proven that SMS and mobile authenticators are not very effective in preventing account takeovers and targeted attacks.
Protect hybrid and remote workers against account takeovers by replacing mobile authenticators and SMS with the the YubiKey. YubiKeys leverage FIDO2 and WebAuthn open authentication standards to provide the highest level of security assurance that protect your workers against phishing and man-in-the middle attacks.
Secure remote access technologies with MFA
Connecting via Virtual Private Networks (VPN) or Identity-Aware Proxies (IAP) to access corporate networks, protected resources or specific applications from unsecured home or public wifi can be risky if they are using legacy forms of authentication.
The YubiKey secures remote access by enabling phishing-resistant 2FA or MFA for leading VPN applications such as Pulse Secure and Cisco AnyConnect, as well as other remote access applications, using smartcard (PIV), one-time password (OTP), FIDO U2F, or FIDO2 capabilities.
“We were looking to add another layer of security to our POS offerings and previously the only option was 2FA via a phone call. With YubiKeys we were able to get the extra security benefits we needed at the touch of a button. It’s also a highly secure solution for remote employee access”.
Protect computer login with MFA
If employee laptops are not secured properly, they can provide entry points for external threats leading to a security breach, which can have financial, legal and reputational repercussions for your business.
YubiKeys secure computer logins, protecting on-device applications and critical business data. Multiple login options include authentication for Macs and Windows computers including those connected via Azure Active Directory, Active Directory and Microsoft Accounts. One of the most effective ways to secure computer access is to leverage the YubiKey smart card functionality, requiring a YubiKey and a PIN.
Step-up authentication for password managers
Passwords are still the most used authentication method according to a recent SANS Report on password management and 2FA. Almost 100% of the respondents indicated that passwords are in use, even though passwords are susceptible to phishing attacks. Having phishing-resistant 2FA or MFA is very important to protect your employees and infrastructure.
The YubiKey integrates with several enterprise-grade password managers including 1Password, Dashlane, Keeper Security, LastPass, and more, ensuring that lax password management policies don’t cause a security breach.
Secure & portable authenticator app
Many of the services or applications used internally may support time-based one-time passcodes (OTPs) — such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or Authy — as a two-factor authentication method.
You can enhance phone-based one-time passcode authentication with the Yubico Authenticator, a cross-platform authenticator app that improves security and portability by storing TOTP secrets on the YubiKey and not on the mobile phone. This allows users to generate the OTP codes within the app by inserting or tapping the YubiKey to a device. Yubico authenticator is compatible with iOS, Android, PC and Mac.
Secure SSH authentication keys
SSH credentials used to access business servers are high value targets for hackers, as they are used by developers and systems administrators who may have higher access levels to critical systems and data. Storing SSH private keys on local devices leaves them at risk of being stolen. Additionally, manually typing OTP codes for MFA slows down access times and productivity as it takes users away from their workflows.
SSH users can authenticate to remote systems using private keys stored securely on a YubiKey. Storing SSH private keys on a YubiKey ensures that they cannot be copied, stolen remotely or accessed by malware on the device. Using YubiKeys also offers greater convenience and faster logins – with a single touch users are securely authenticated. YubiKeys can work with SSH with a variety of authentication protocols including OpenPGP, PIV, FIDO U2F, or OTP.
