Yubico makes two-factor authentication simple, setting new global standards for simple and secure access to computers, servers, and internet accounts.
The company’s core invention, the YubiKey, is a small USB and NFC device; easier and safer than authenticator apps, the device delivers strong hardware protection with a simple touch across any number of IT systems and online services.
Historically, hardware two-factor authentication have been viewed as being too complicated to use and too expensive to scale to the masses. That is why the YubiKey was invented; to create an easy-to-use, highly secure, and low cost device that eliminates the preconceptions of hardware authentication.
Supporting multiple authentication and encryption protocols on all devices and platforms, YubiKeys protect access to user accounts for some of the world’s largest enterprises, setting the standard for two-factor and multi-factor authentication.
To all of us who own it and to all of us who are constantly re-creating it: let’s not let the fraudsters limit the potential of what the internet is and can be!
– Stina Ehrensvard, Yubico CEO & Founder
Additionally, Yubico’s hardware security module, the YubiHSM, protects sensitive data inside standard servers against both remotely conducted intrusion attacks and also internal threats, such as employees copying secrets.
A leading contributor to the FIDO Universal 2nd Factor open authentication protocol, Yubico technology is deployed and loved by millions of users in more than 160 countries. The company is also a proud member of open identity standards organizations such as the FIDO Alliance, IDESG, OpenID, and the W3C.
