– Evelina Ander, Marketing Manager at Yubico (www.yubico.com):
Strong two-factor authentication is vital for securing access to SAML-based single sign-on servers and mission-critical applications that house sensitive data. To provide a high level of security to their clients, SSO Easy recently chose our YubiKey small driverless USB-token to simplify the process of logging in with a One-Time Password (OTP).
SSO Easy has integrated YubiKey support in EasyConnect and this Single Sign-On server product makes SAML 2.0 and SAML 1.1 project implementations easier, faster, and more cost effective. The integrated YubiKey-SSO Easy solution provides a solution that is easy and cost-effective enough for small organizations, and robust and scalable enough to meet enterprise client needs.
In general, the high cost and complexity of traditional two-factor authentication technologies and enterprise class SAML servers have limited the adoption. But integrations like ours with SSO Easy make single sign-on, secure easy and affordable for a much wider range of organizations that house large amounts of data.
The joint YubiKey and SSO Easy solution works out-of-the-box, leveraging existing APIs. Free trials of the complete, integrated solution are available through SSO Easy. Free Trials are typically completed in about one hour.
