About this talk

The 2017 Verizon Data Breach Report found that 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged stolen and/or weak passwords last year. Organizations looking for strong authentication solutions often face a trade-off between security and simplicity. Smart card and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) are two of the strongest authentication solutions for protecting your entire organization, and securing the information they access. Employees, vendors, partners, and customers all need strong authentication for workstation login, access to web applications, remote access to services, and privileged system access. During this webinar, Yubico’s VP of Solutions Jerrod Chong will share: • A comparison of enterprise authentication techniques, including username/password, one-time password, mobile push, smart card, and FIDO U2F • Why smart card and FIDO U2F are the strongest authentication solutions available today • How a single hardware authentication device combining smart card and FIDO U2F authentication can protect your entire organization from phishing, malware, and man-in-the-middle attacks Nine of the top 10 tech companies, including Google, Facebook, and Salesforce.com, use Yubico’s authentication solutions to protect all of their employees from phishing, man-in-the-middle, and malware attacks. Yubico’s enterprise-wide solution, the YubiKey, combines both smart card and FIDO U2F capabilities in a single hardware-based authentication device.
