Consumers and enterprises alike want their identities, accounts, and data to be safe online. Unfortunately, traditional usernames and passwords aren’t secure enough to provide protection. Two-factor authentication with the YubiKey is the easiest and most secure way to protect your online identity, requiring nothing more than a simple tap or touch to authenticate into accounts.
Yubico will preview the YubiKey 4C USB-C compatible form factor at ShowStoppers @ CES (booth A-1), and make it available in the Yubico store for $50 beginning February 13, 2017. Built on the proven foundation of the YubiKey 4, the YubiKey 4C supports multiple authentication protocols, including Yubico OTP, smart card (PIV), FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) and RSA 4096 keys for OpenPGP. This lineup of functionality is contained in a new keychain design for laptops, such as the new MacBook Pro, which rely solely on USB-C ports.
The YubiKey 4C secures access to a wide range of consumer and enterprise applications, including U2F strong authentication (Google, Dropbox, GitHub, Salesforce, etc.), password managers (LastPass, Dashlane, etc.), Windows login including Windows Hello, remote access, VPN, and much more. The YubiKey works on Microsoft Windows, Mac, Linux, and on major browsers without the need for extra software or drivers.
