Thinfactory is Certified Yubico Reseller


No key, no authentication

Yubico is a global authentication leader and famous for their core invention called ‘YubiKey’. The YubiKey is a compact and extremely robust identity security key, for example multi-factor authentication, smartcard authentication, one time password challenge authentication… It provides the highest level of security, without compromising on ease of use. You can use one key for all applications, both private and professional accounts, and is available for any device, connected through USB or NFC.

Yubico is a core contributor to the FIDO2 open authentication protocol. FIDO2 offers expanded authentication options including strong single factor (passwordless), strong two factor, and multi-factor authentication.

With sensitive, personal and confidential data being at risk of ending up in the hands of cyber criminals, companies of all sizes are looking to strengthen their security. As a result, IT organizations cannot exclusively depend on passwords to protect access to corporate data. 81 % of all data breaches are related to stolen or weak passwords. YubiKeys give the absolute highest protection against phishing attacks and man in the middle attacks, and adopting stronger authentication is essential to decrease the risk of becoming the next target.

Nine out of ten top tech companies in the world are using YubiKeys, as well as governments and companies of all sizes such as Google, Agfa, Microsoft, Salesforce, GitHub, Facebook, …

Why use a YubiKey?

  • Faster: Decrease time to authenticate by > 4x
  • More Value: Reduce support desk costs by > 90%
  • Strongest Security: No account takeovers when deployed fully
  • Trusted Production: Made in Sweden and USA; secrets controlled by customers
  • One Key to All: Access to nearly 1,000 apps and services with no shared secrets
