Features and benefits of YubiKey for RSA SecurID Access

  • Conditional Access and Risk-based Analysis

    Simplify policy and decision making, and mitigate advanced threats with invisible layers of protection. Easily set up authentication policies that are intuitively based on low to high levels of risk. Leverage the risk engine–which uses machine-learning algorithms and takes into consideration information about the user access, device, applications and behavior – for assurance that users are who they claim to be.

  • Enterprise-grade Credential Lifecycle Management

    Enjoy simplified and secure enrollment, self-service and emergency access, that has the scalability to address enterprise requirements.

  • Form Factors and Methods for All Users and Use Cases

    Users can connect via USB or Near-field Communication (NFC). In addition to the YubiKey for RSA SecurID Access FIDO token, RSA offers a wide range of authentication methods to meet today’s diverse workforce needs. RSA offers push notifications, SMS, OTP, biometrics, and hardware and software tokens.

  • One Platform, Multiple Protocol and System Support

    Includes authentication and cryptographic protocols: FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F), WebAuthn/FIDO2, Personal Identity Verification-compatible (PIV) Smart Card, and OpenPGP smart card. Works across major operating systems including Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, and Linux, as well as leading browsers.

Prevent Man-in-the-Middle Attacks and Eliminate Account Takeovers

Prevent Man-in-the-Middle Attacks and Eliminate Account Takeovers

The YubiKey for RSA SecurID Access is based on hardware with the authentication secret stored on a separate secure chip built into the key, with no connection to the Internet so it cannot be copied or stolen. Additionally, the data is encrypted with strong public key cryptography where only the public key is stored on the RSA SecurID Access service, eliminating risks.

RSA and Yubico

RSA and Yubico have partnered to offer RSA customers modern FIDO authentication with RSA SecurID® Access and the YubiKey. With the joint solution, RSA customers will benefit from enterprise-grade security, risk-based authentication, and simplified credential lifecycle management, while preventing account takeovers, reducing IT costs, and improving the user experience.
