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.
Yubico believes that vulnerable populations shouldn’t have to worry about their digital security, and are passionate about ensuring that security isn’t an obstacle standing in the way of the important work that you do. Through its philanthropic iniative, Secure it Forward, the company is committed to providing YubiKeys at no-cost to at-risk individuals and non-profits focused on protecting human rights and freedom of speech, upholding election integrity, and furthering diversity in tech.
