If you've ever gone to use a multi-factor authenticated app, and not had your authentication device nearby, but had another device on-hand, Authy is for you. Authy makes it easy to turn any of your devices into your second factor for authentication, ensuring that your codes are always at hand. Even if you don't want to use multiple devices, users will appreciate the ability to back up their authentication codes, so that if their authentication device is ever lost, they can easily recover the codes to a new device, without having to re-register the new device with their applications.

the Yubikeys are great for securing computer login and supported software login/access. If I had multiple people using the same computer or workstation, I may not gone this route. I have my key linked to all of the office computers, and I need to access a computer after an employee has recently accessed it I sometimes get my authentication denied. I'm not sure if this is a normal issue or if perhaps these keys aren't intended to be used in this manner, but it can get annoying. At times I've had to reboot the computer to get it to authenticate my key.

      Usability

      Twilio

      It really cannot get much easier. Simply sign in, verify the device and off you go. I have found Authy to be very easy and almost identical across all the devices I use. I am disappointed about the slow update process. Authy could use some updating, but I have not seen it yet.

      I give slightly better than average rating because of the complexity in using a Yubikey. It is not as easy as native push notifications for 2FA products, however, it provides much better strength. Rating this higher or lower would be a disservice to people reading this review. If you are in the market for a hardware 2FA tool, Yubikey will be a great asset in your toolbox.

      I've never had to contact Authy's support. Of course, that's because Authy is so simple and easy to use that there hasn't been any need to. Authy correctly implements the time-based one-time password (TOTP) protocol, and becomes it conforms to the standard, it easily replaces Google Authenticator for your needs.

      Authy is much better at handling multi-device scenarios and the process of recovering access from a lost device is much simpler.

      Google Authenticator has very limited features available where Yubico can suffice all the authentication method requirements and can be installed on-premises as well. It can completely replace the Google Authenticator. Yubico has hardware based authentication as well apart from TOTP/HOTP etc.. Because in some companies, Google/mobile is not allowed for so in those scenarios as well Yubico can easily fit in and can provide the secure authentication.

      Return on Investment

      Twilio

      • We need 2FA to work with many of our corporate clients, and Authy makes it easier. We haven't run the numbers, but it's probably saved at least a day or two of hassles when juggling devices.

      • 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.
