Safe-T® ZoneZero & Yubico’s Yubikey Joint Solution Brief

Duo + Safe-T Zero Trust Network Access

As the world has become more digital and connected, organizations open their networks and internal applications to the outside (e.g. employees, work from home users business partners, 3rd party vendors, mobile devices, IOT devices) much more than in the past.
While this enhanced connectivity provides businesses with incredible opportunities, connectivity comes at a cost; Research shows that six out of ten organizations around the globe have suffered at least one cyber-attack on their enterprise services.
In our technologically sophisticated world, this shouldn’t be the case – but it is, because of the need to expose enterprise services to the world in order to interact with 3rd party vendors and partners. The fact is that organizations are still using old ways of:

  • designing perimeter networks – e.g. DMZ segments
  • providing application access – e.g. IPSEC and SSL VPNs, open firewalls
  • user authentication – e.g. single factor authentication and MFA where it’s easy

and these legacy methods don’t account for modern connectivity challenges.

A new approach to security is needed – zero trust – to address identity,
app & network threats.

Key Benefits

  • Authenticate before providing access using Yubikey
  • Control access for any user – internal, VPN user, non-VPN user
  • Easily integrate Yubikey MFA to any corporate application or service
  • Add MFA to MFA-unsupported applications
  • Hide services from unauthorized users
  • Reduce attack surface by closing incoming firewall ports
  • End-to-end monitoring of application access flow

What is Yubikey?

The YubiKey 5 Series eliminates account takeovers by providing strong phishing defense using multi-protocol capabilities that can secure legacy and modern systems. The series provides a range of authentication choices including strong two-factor, multi-factor and passwordless authentication, and seamless touch-to-sign.

What is Safe-T® ZoneZero?

The joint solution transforms access challenges into access wins, and grants access to applications on a need-to-know basis ONLY, while giving your users fast and seamless access to the resources they need. The result? A “verify-first, access-second” Zero Trust approach across your applications for enhanced security, greater understanding, and fewer frustrated users.
