"Innovation is core to all we do, from the launch of the original YubiKey ten years ago, to the concept of one authentication device across multiple services, and today as we are accelerating into the passwordless era," said Stina Ehrensvard, CEO and Founder, Yubico. "The YubiKey 5 Series can deliver single-factor, two-factor, or multi-factor secure login, supporting many different uses cases on different platforms for different verticals with a variety of authentication scenarios."
Microsoft also has nothing but good things to say about YubiKeys:
"Passwordless login brings a monumental change to how business users and consumers will securely log in to applications and services," said Alex Simons, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Identity Division. "With FIDO2, Microsoft is working to remove the dependency on password-based logins, with support from devices like the YubiKey 5."
