YubiKey Scored “Pretty Positive” in BYU Study

Scott Mace | Freelance Journalist

Two-factor authentication via a smartphone has appeal since so many of us carry smartphones, but it isn’t the only hardware game in town. Think smaller—devices only large enough to permit users to press a button. There are several such devices on the market already, and one is the YubiKey from YubiCo. But how usable are […]

Jeremy Grant | Managing Director, Technology Business Strategy, Venable LLP

A key lesson from 2017 was that attackers have caught up with many of the “first-generation tools” we have used to protect and verify identity. The recent Equifax breach may have driven this point home, but the reality is that these tools have been vulnerable for quite some time. There are many reasons for this […]

Why UX Matters or How Color (and other) Choices Can Ruin an Identity Experience for Users

Lance Peterman | IAM Architect, Merck

I’m not writing this to shame a company, though I do plan to share this post with them in hopes that they can make some adjustments that will benefit customers in the future. As such, I’ll do my best to mask their identity as much as reasonably possible. Before doing so, I want to back […]
