SUNNYVALE, Calif. Feb. 22, 2011 Yubico , a leading provider of easy and secure login solutions and Mi-Token Inc . , today announced that a combined solution has been implemented at Trident Microsystems to provide multi-factor login authentication for its staff, consultants and partners.
Trident required a highly-reliable solution. The ultra-thin YubiKey has a rugged, waterproof, crush-resistant design, has no battery or synchronization requirements, and is designed to last far longer than typical hard token solutions.
Trident has strict policies regarding resources that may be accessed on the Internet without an authentication token. At the same time, the organization must support remote workers, consultants and other third-parties that require access to specific information. The Mi-Token and Yubico solution makes it easy for administrators to enable user access to only specific segments, and authenticate to only the resources they need to access.
Typically, when an authentication device fails, organizations must not only purchase a new device, but must also account for user downtime, as well as the costs and the administrative time involved in delivering and re-provisioning the new devices. Moving to the combined Mi-Token and Yubico solution, Trident has reduced its expenses by 50 percent for authentication hardware and software alone, and has greatly reduced its administrative overhead requirements.
