HYPR Featured Launch Partner for YubiKey Bio Multi-Protocol Edition (Early Access)

HYPR featured launch partner of new multi-protocol YubiKey Bio Series

Today Yubico announced the expansion of its YubiKey Bio Series to include multi-protocol keys that support biometric authentication for FIDO and Smart Card/PIV protocols. Like other YubiKey Bio Series, the new multi-protocol keys incorporate a fingerprint sensor, enabling secure, convenient biometric and PIN-based passwordless login across devices and platforms. The multi-protocol keys, however, offer additional flexibility for enterprises, especially when combined with the HYPR platform.

"Our latest innovation of the YubiKey Bio Series - Multi-protocol Edition solves additional authentication needs for both modern and legacy environments with a phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA)," said Jeff Wallace, SVP Product at Yubico. “We are pleased to partner with HYPR as our initial featured partner for this Early Access Program. They will be the first to provide their customers with enhanced Smart Card/PIV protocols combined with the convenience of a biometric touch of the YubiKey to authenticate, while also helping drive further adoption of passwordless sign-in to maximize security and productivity.”
