Duo Security and Yubico Chosen to Provide Two-Factor Authentication for Facebook
Oct 3 13
Duo Security, Inc. and Yubico announced that Facebook has successfully deployed Duo Security and YubiKey two-factor authentication technologies across its enterprise. In order to securely authenticate software engineers to production networks and servers, Facebook needed a solution that provided extremely quick and easy authentication, a fast rollout to employees, and the flexibility for multiple authentication options. After careful consideration, the company deployed solutions from both Duo Security and Yubico. When coupled together, the respective technologies successfully addressed Facebook's authentication priorities -- placing equal emphasis on usability and security. This complementary combination of two-factor technologies include multiple authentication methods -- push, SMS, mobile, voice -- of cloud-based authentication from Duo Security and the YubiKey Nano device from Yubico. Together, these two innovative technologies allow Facebook employees and developers to quickly authenticate using the YubiKey Nano, while offering the tremendous flexibility and ease of use from Duo Security. With Duo, users are given a choice of device and method each time they authenticate. Additionally, Duo supports all phone types, from smart phones to landlines, and lets users authenticate with a variety of authentication factors including the YubiKey.
Yubico AB Presents the YubiKey NEO Featuring NFC and Security Technology from NXP
Nov 6 12
Yubico AB announced the production launch of the YubiKey NEO. This new authentication token, developed by the request of a online service provider, features Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, asymmetric cryptography support and superior mobile security with a single tap. Yubico will present the production version of the YubiKey NEO in collaboration with NXP, the worldwide leader in Authentication and NFC technology, at CARTES, November 6-8, in Paris. Combining a hardware token in addition to a Smartphone is critical for true strong security and mitigates the risk of mobile malware. The rugged YubiKey NEO fits conveniently on a keychain. When the device is tapped on a NFC-enabled Smartphone, the phone reads a securely encrypted one-time password emitted by the YubiKey NEO -- with no additional client software needed. The YubiKey NEO features a secure element based on NXP's SmartMX security technology and may also be used with asymmetric encryption. The YubiKey NEO may be used as a CCID compliant USB token, enabling easy integration for systems integrators and third-party PKI applications. The product will be demonstrated at the NXP booth at CARTES, November 6-8, 2012. The YubiKey NEO may be ordered on the Yubico web store for $50 U.S.
Yubico AB Launches YubiKey Nano
Feb 28 12
Yubico AB launched a new minimized form factor of the company's YubiKey one-time password token. The new YubiKey Nano cleanly fits inside of a USB port and is designed for users who want to make user presence and machine authentication an integrated part of mobile devices. Yubico's standard YubiKey fits on a keychain for portable, secure and easy authentication on multiple computers. To address increasing requirements for authentication on mobile devices, the YubiKey Nano is a simplified Trusted Platform Module. Providing the same authentication and security properties of a standard YubiKey, the YubiKey Nano offers a compact design that allows it to fit flush in the USB-port of laptops and tablets. Additionally, the YubiKey Nano can also be inserted into the Apple Camera Connection kit, becoming an integrated authentication solution for iPad users. Unlike a conventional TPM, the YubiKey Nano features a touch button for user presence test and is not limited to a specific computer. Furthermore, the YubiKey Nano can be configured centrally and be deployed to a broad audience securely. The YubiKey Nano is manufactured in California and is 100% compatible with the standard YubiKey and the established and proven Yubico ecosystem. The new product is now available on the Yubico web store for $40, and is being demonstrated at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, February 27 to March 1, booth #2744.
