The authentication challenge

Compromised identities have reached a level where the weaknesses in static passwords and software-based mobile authentication have been exposed. And the more secure hardware authentication devices are too complicated and expensive to scale for the majority of businesses and users.

The YubiKey changes this.

By using the YubiKey we’ve raised the standard of security for our employees beyond what was commercially available. — Google

Defeat the attackers, not your users

Stop unauthorized access to computers, servers, and cloud-based services, and prevent phishing, man-in-the-middle attacks, and malware. YubiKeys plug into USB ports or connect over NFC with mobile devices. The user authenticates with a simple tap.

Because of the ease of use, we have seen minimal support and overhead costs. Other technologies didn’t fully support our need to allow multiple and rapid logins. — Facebook

Yubico - Featured Integrations

Works out of the box with hundreds of applications

The YubiKey is natively supported for access to all computers and platforms. Includes multiple authentication protocols, so a single YubiKey can be used for VPN, code signing, disk encryption, and hundreds of service and software providers to help solve the toughest security and access challenges.

“We deployed YubiKeys to 17,000 employees in 3 days.” —

Proven high quality

Manufactured from a single robust monoblock. YubiKeys are waterproof, battery free, and very difficult to break.

Many customers boast still using YubiKeys they deployed dating back to 2008.

As mobile as you are

YubiKey NEO features NFC for secure mobile authentication. Other YubiKeys work as a complement to mobile authentication technologies when the phone is lost, broken, or has no battery or network access.
