Yubico was founded with one core mission in mind – secure the internet by making it safer and accessible for everyone. Since 2007, the company has been a pioneer and leader in setting new open authentication standards that could be freely implemented and utilized by every service, browser, and operating system on a global scale. The FIDO U2F, FIDO2, and WebAuthn open standards are a culmination of this work, and are now the leading technologies responsible for redefining internet security for all with the introduction of phishing-resistant authentication.
Yubico’s core product, the YubiKey, is the gold standard for multi-factor authentication and works out-of-the-box to secure hundreds of consumer and enterprise applications and services. Today, the strongest form of account protection — on mobile and otherwise — is offered by hardware security keys and is the only form of authentication that provides the best defense against phishing.
In October 2021, Yubico released two new security keys: The YubiKey Bio – FIDO Edition and the Security Key C NFC. The YubiKey Bio is Yubico’s first-ever biometric-supporting physical key designed to protect users’ accounts from being hacked. The YubiKey Bio Series is available for purchase for $80 for the USB-A form-factor and $85 for the USB-C form-factor. The Security Key C NFC offers FIDO-only support in a USB-C form factor with NFC capabilities. It provides enhanced, modern security and is available for purchase today for $29.
