Press release: Thinfactory is Certified Yubico Reseller

 

No key, no authentication

Thinfactory is expanding by adding YubiKey by Yubico to its portfolio. The YubiKey allows for ‘passwordless’ log-in at different Thinfactory cloud services. This makes log-in process easier and more secure. No YubiKey means no authentication. This reduces the risk of identity theft, such as account take-overs, on cloud services.

Mario Casier, Sales Manager at Thinfactory: “A total of 81 percent of all data breaches are related to stolen or weak passwords.
With the YubiKey, we can guarantee maximum data security, without tiring users
with complex log-in procedures and passwords.”

 One key for all cloud applications

The YubiKey is a physical identity security key to be used for example for multi-factor authentication (MFA), smartcard authentication and single-use password
challenge authentication. One key that can be used for all applications, both
private and professional accounts, and available for every device, connected
via USB or NFC.

Perfect match with Thinfactory’s Secure Business Continuity strategy

This collaboration perfectly aligns with our strategy to help organizations implement cloud solutions. With these cloud solutions, clients safeguard their business continuity in a safe way. In addition to our infrastructure solutions and Microsoft-supporting services, we are equipped with the expertise that is needed to offer maximum protection for company data. Without losing sight of ease of use.


Focus on security

Together with Microsoft, Google, Amazon and other members of the FIDO
Alliance, Yubico developed ‘passwordless authentication’ as a new standard. It
is simpler than smartcard authentication and safer than One Time Password
(OTP). Sjaak Koekkoek, Sales Director Benelux at Yubico: “We need
partners like Thinfactory, that focus on security solutions, in order to
support our strong growth. Thinfactory is one of our strategic partners in
creating a safer internet for everyone. Together, we make sure IT environments
are less attractive for cybercrime and that organizations have an easier time
adhering to privacy guidelines. In addition, we use YubiKey to help
organizations significantly minimize the number of support tickets relating to
password support.”
