Overall Satisfaction with Yubico

As we know, applications and technologies to use are increasing day by day and so are the user credentials. So, it is difficult to remember all those passwords as there are too many. In such scenarios, Yubico came as a life savior. The best thing about the Yubico authentication is that it supports both symmetric and asymmetric key encryption methods and passwords are encrypted.
  • Symmetric key encryption
  • Asymmetric encryption
  • Works with all OS/platforms
  • Customer Support, especially in India
  • Documentation availability on open internet
  • Licensing/pricing
  • TOTP
  • HOTP
  • HMAC-SHA1 Challenge/Response
  • VPN Authentication
  • Reduced the Credentials Phishing surface
  • Did not needed to educate the users, as it's so easy to use
  • Saved money as all the solutions are now managed from one platform- Yubico
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.

Do you think Yubico YubiKeys delivers good value for the price?

Other solutions support symmetric encryption only, where Yubico supports both symmetric and asymmetric encryption methods. It can be installed on cloud as well as on-premises. So if there is a customer who is not cloud friendly, they can also [benefit from] Yubico. It's suited to all kinds of organization [as it] has so many authentication methods available i.e. Time Based OTP (TOTP), Counter Based OTP (HOTP), Smart Card, etc... It supports older authentication methods as well and supports all the platforms/operating systems.
