YubiKey and the Future of Authentication – Our Hardware Beats Your Malware

FIDO-Yubico-YubiKeys-2-1030x687Today, trillions of dollars are lost, and billions of internet users risk getting their online accounts hacked because of compromised static credentials. It’s encouraging that some great large-scale service providers are adopting technologies that represent the future of authentication — simple, open and secure, yet safeguarding your privacy.

Yubico’s YubiKey is a small, light USB and NFC device you put on your keychain that keeps your accounts from getting hacked. You register your YubiKey with a service like your computer’s login, your Google account, or your Dropbox account. When you log in, you are asked for both your password and your YubiKey. The YubiKey requires nothing more than a simple tap or touch.  Phishing, malware, and other attack methods don’t work because they would need both your physical key and your passwords to breach your accounts.

That one extra step, also called two factor authentication, proves you are who you say you are. You are the only person who knows your password and has your YubiKey. YubiKeys use advanced cryptography and other techniques so that they can’t be spoofed or hacked. No one can get your personal information from a YubiKey, and one key can support thousands of services.  YubiKeys are nearly indestructible — just add it to your keychain along with your house and car keys.

8 of the 10 largest Internet companies use YubiKey — every Google employee, every Facebook employee — along with thousands of other businesses. YubiKey deployment is easy, fast, and inexpensive, and best of all people love using YubiKey. Find out at our booth A07 or
