"Yubikey - The most economical way to implement 2FA in SMBs and small to medium size enterprises"

What do you like best?

Although we primarily focus on enterprise customers, we have many SMBs. We have found that the Yubikey at $40 each is the cheapest and easiest to implement two-factor authentication (2FA) out there. It is very easy to implement and supports all major operating systems, many password vaults (lastpass for example), and the majority of Internet sites. It was trivial to implement on MAC OS, Windows, and in all browsers.

What do you dislike?

It only has two partitions. The first we use for a Smartcard and the second for one-time-passwords (OTP). It would be nice to have more, but it works fine for our customers and our needs at present. It also has a limit to the number of passwords you can store on it. Which would require more memory on the USB soft token. Again, nothing that has negatively impacted it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many smaller companies making USB token based solutions. Most are clunky at best. Yubikey really has their act together with features and functionality. My daughter uses them at two hospitals she has been at. It gave her access to resources without knowing any passwords. This gave both hospitals a big win to eliminate the need for employees to know and use password based credentials. Healthcare is the greatest target for malicious or accidental insider attacks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Since all breech reports for the past many years have shown that User ID and password have resulted in 100% of the breeches. It is critical that every organization implement two-factor authentication for VPN access, authenticating to their computing devices, web sites, and password vault.

"Yubico is easy to use, easy to install and easy to carry around. "

What do you like best?

We used the product for multifactor authentication on company's online corporate accounts as well as access to personal computers. What I really liked the most was getting to use it quite quickly out of the box, it was easy to install and configure, and the documentation on the website made it easy for us to configure it's use on personal computer access. For the price point, it completely worked wonders for us.

What do you dislike?

We got the Yubikey Nano, we thought we weren't going to be using it a lot, but ended up using it on the go. We had to buy some keychains for the nano as we kept misplacing them. Configuring the Yubikey was an easy task, but I was really left wanting more than two configuration slots.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Added security to our employees and to our personal documents through a security key MFA. We got exactly what we paid and at a great price.

What Multi-Factor Authentication solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great 2fa device to consider."

What do you like best?

I love that I can change the encryption password whenever I want. I love that it integrates with google accounts and lastpass. I love that I can also store a long password.

What do you dislike?

Requires some technical skills to setup. So I'm not always willing to suggest to all my friends. Does. It work with iOS devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always buy 2. In the event one device does you don't want to have to wait for a secondary device to come in the mail. This would leave you locked out of all of your accounts.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work in the tech field so having a password that changes frequently is needed. In a growing age of stolen identity and resources, it helps me to not have to memorize passwords that can be bruteforced easily.

"Fantastic Solution to 2-Factor"

What do you like best?

Fantastic solution for U2F and multifactor authentication. The ease of use and implementation is amazing and creates a much easier 2-factor system.

What do you dislike?

I wish they would include some storage into the device. I am already required to carry the device, if I could also use it as a flash drive I would be extremely happy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Simple physical 2-factor device, It is extremely useful with U2F clients. Device is extremely simple but must be paired with another software (Lastpass) in order to fully utilize the device.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Multifactor authenticaion that is unique to each user and difficult to crack, but easy to use for individual users.
