WHY USE MULTI-FACTOR AUTHENTICATION?
As devices grow ever more connected the need for fast and seamless authentication is on the rise. Businesses which are realizing how important it is to have strong security are searching for more advanced authentication methods than a simple password. With SMS authentication compromised, IT pros follow a simple success formula for authentication: using something you already know (password/login) and something you have - and that’s the part the YubiKey comes in.

YubiKeys plug into USB ports or connect over NFC with mobile devices. It’s a physical dongle that can be plugged into a computer or you can carry it with and use for authentication and access management.
