The YubiKey combines strong authentication with hardware-backed protection to deliver an easy to use solution that reduces IT operational costs.
By enabling organisations to deploy PKI certificates to YubiKeys through credential management system MyID, Intercede and Yubico together provide strong hardware-backed protection at scale.
Why YubiKey + MyID
Easy One-Touch 2FA
MyID enables organisations to leverage easy to use, one-touch YubiKey 2FA to provide optimal protection against weak or compromised user credentials—the leading cause of security breaches. Unlike other 2FA methods, logging in with the YubiKey is four times faster than typing manual one-time passwords.
As a member of the Works with YubiKey Program, MyID has been vetted by Yubico’s Technical Integrations team, and is a verified solution which fully supports the YubiKey’s PIVcompatible smart card functionality, combining strong smart user authentication with hardware-backed protection. Together with YubiKeys, MyID enables high security identification to be deployed at scale for governments, military, police, healthcare, multinational enterprises, and more.
Both MyID and the multi-protocol YubiKey leverage existing security infrastructure and integrate seamlessly with a wide range of applications and services, reducing the complexity of the deployment process.
MyID leverages smart card authentication with the YubiKey to heighten the security of credential management using PKI. The YubiKey also supports U2F, FIDO2/WebAuthn, and OTP to give end-users the flexibility to use the same key to deploy different protocols for a variety of services.
MyID can issue YubiKeys that work across multiple browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, and more, on Microsoft Windows 7, 8.1, and 10.
The joint solution simplifies credential management for end-users with self-service from MyID and a variety of YubiKey form factors to suit every preference and personal use case.
