Yubico stops account takeovers in their tracks, making secure login easy and available for everyone. Since being founded in 2007, the company has been a leader in setting global standards for secure access to computers, mobile devices, servers, browsers, and internet accounts. Yubico is a creator and core contributor to the FIDO2, WebAuthn, and FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) open authentication standards, and is a pioneer in delivering modern, hardware-based passkey authentication security at scale to customers in over 160 countries. Since 2016, the company has grown net sales by a compounded annual growth rate (“CAGR”) of 50%.
Yubico’s solutions enable passwordless logins using the most secure form of passkey technology. YubiKeys work out-of-the-box across hundreds of consumer and enterprise applications and services, delivering a raised bar for security with great flexibility. YubiKeys have historically only been sold against a one-time payment, also known as the perpetual basis, which gives the customer ownership of the product throughout its lifetime. However, in 2020, Yubico also began offering a subscription-based model, in which Yubico assumes a larger overall responsibility and retains ownership of the hardware.
Aligned with its mission of making the internet more secure for everyone, Yubico donates YubiKeys to organizations helping at-risk individuals through the philanthropic initiative, Secure it Forward. The company is headquartered in Stockholm and Santa Clara, CA. with manufacturing plants located in both countries. The company is listed on Nasdaq First North Growth Market in Stockholm.
