Pioneering authentication standards for the modern web
Built for security: Mobile authentication software or SMS could not stop phishing and man-in-the middle attacks at Google.
Employees & customers: The search giant made YubiKey mandatory for all employees, and optional for all end-users.
Results: Zero account takeovers. 4x faster to login. 92% fewer support calls. 100% acceptance rate.
Historically, there has been a tradeoff between great security and usability.
Passwords are fundamentally broken. Basic two-factor authentication, like SMS and mobile apps, is increasingly vulnerable to attackers. And the more secure hardware technologies, such as traditional smart cards, are difficult to deploy and use at scale.
The YubiKey changes this.
