The authentication challenge
Data breaches, phishing and billions of stolen credentials
The internet was designed for sharing information, not for high security. As it has evolved and grown to become an essential part of our everyday lives, so has the number of fraudsters. Currently, 18 million credentials fall into the wrong hands every day.
Passwords are becoming more and more complex
We simply cannot remember multiple complex passwords. Sometimes we also sacrifice security by simplifying passwords or using them over and over again.
Mobile authenticators cannot prevent phishing
For more security, we were then asked to use two-factor authentication (2FA) such as mobile authenticators and SMS. But it turned out that these are slow and do not prevent the theft of your credentials through modern phishing attacks.
Authentication without compromise
Stop account takeovers, enable passwordless access and modernise your multi-factor authentication. Get YubiKey for outstanding security, ease of use and return on investment.
The biggest security problem: stolen credentials
Corporate security budgets are getting bigger, but at the same time security breaches are also on the rise
Although global spending on corporate security now exceeds $100 billion per year, the number of security breaches is increasing, not decreasing.
Knowing what matters most
Less than 10 % of budgets are spent on preventing credentials from being shared illegally, even though more than 80 % of all security breaches are due to this.
Simple 2FA is vulnerable... and cumbersome
Authentication software or security codes downloaded onto a computer or phone are vulnerable to modern phishing and man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks. Manually entering a code from one device on another is time-consuming and error-prone.
The YubiKey is the solution
Proven in many places
Thousands of businesses and millions of end users use YubiKey to simplify and secure access to computers, internet services and mobile apps. Our customers include 9 of the top 10 internet companies, 3 of the top 5 financial and retail companies, and several of the largest government agencies around the world.
Groundbreaking global standards
The first YubiKey was released in 2008. The vision, inspired by the term "ubiquity", was to protect all online accounts with one security key. Our founders moved from Sweden to Silicon Valley to introduce a new global security standard that is now supported by all leading platforms and browsers.
