Likelihood to Recommend

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

If your solution falls within their standard use case or you have Office 365 - then it makes total sense. If you need a lot of customization or have a really specific business process that causes you to deviate from the standard flow it usually makes more sense to create a custom solution

Yubico

I 100% recommend Yubico for organizations that work with secure or confidential information. The use of 2-factor authentication should be a given: it protects information and assets (personal and organizational) and adds an additional layer of security. Yubico's security is demonstrably robust, and it integrates (sometimes with some finagling/legwork) with most 2FA platforms/logins. Additionally, the key itself is either a semipermanent unobtrusive attachment or a small key you can plug into the computer. I highly recommend Yubikeys for both personal and professional use.

Cons

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

  • It can be difficult to work with when deviating off the standard use cases

Yubico

  • Setup can be a little confusing for inexperienced users: documentation and step-by-step instructions will help ensure smoothe onboarding.
  • Specific implementations (like for Google) can be tricky. Fortunately, Yubico provides a lot of support / documentation on impelementation.

Alternatives Considered

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

Honestly, they are very similar as is much of their offerings. It really comes down to which ecosystem are you already invested in? It doesn't make a lot of sense to try and interop with every cloud vendor - pick one and use them. While there used to be substantial differences in the cloud platforms, they are at basic parity now

Yubico

I haven't used any other physical security devices previously. YubiKey and other tech giants like Google, Cisco, and RSA all offer some form of physical/hardware-based security, which is implemented at many workplaces. Yubico was selected for its comprehensive documentation, reputation of excellence, and reliability within the security community itself.

Return on Investment

Azure Multi-Factor Authentication (Discontinued)

  • Overall, it's a really good value compared to building a custom solution that you have to maintain
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Yubico

  • Cost for implementation can be a bit high (per-key runs around forty dollars).
  • Keeping information and access secure is priceless and should be a part of any business.
  • Sleek/small/unobtrusive, which makes it stand out among other USB security options.
