What is Yubikey?

With the rise in software authentication issues including passwords, SMS and mobile applications’ vulnerability to hackers and malware, a tool like Yubikey has become increasingly essential.

Named by the inventors as the ubiquitous key, Yubikey was created with the aim to up the ante in global authentication standards. Yubikey allows one security key to access networks, computers, online services and other mobile devices with just a single touch.

Yubikey can help you master the balance between security and usability. It is convenient as opposed to other secure hardware authentication solutions that tend to be hard to launch and apply.
