YubiKey is a physical dongle that can be plugged into a computer or you can carry it with and use for authentication and access management. It can be plugged into USB ports or connected over NFC with mobile devices. YubiKey is a great tool for multi-level authentication on many websites, inboxes and to access company data.
As devices grow ever more connected the need for fast and seamless authentication is on the rise. Businesses which are realizing how important it is to have strong security are searching for more advanced authentication methods than a simple password. With SMS authentication compromised, IT pros follow a simple success formula for authentication: using something you already know (password/login) and something you have – and that’s the part the YubiKey comes in.
Powered by FAMOC, the IT admin can remotely configure VPN and use physical key for VPN connection and user authentication. The employee will authenticate with a simple tap over NFC and log in to a corporate network with a handy dongle.
Ease of use
One of our main values is being #ObsessedWithSecurity. That is why in Famoc, where we always put security first, we decided to better secure logging into company devices, access to company data, but also to the office itself.
YubiKey is a dedicated security key for reliable login – you can use it to log in your laptop or phone, as well as to portals supporting this type of authentication (such as Gmail or Facebook). In Famoc, we use YubiKey to enter the office, get access to VPN and as two-factor authentication in Gmail.
