Stockholm, Sweden and Sunnyvale, CA, April 16, 2009 - Yubico, the authentication innovator that helps the world trust the Net, today announced the successful integration of Sun OpenSSO Enterprise with the YubiKey USB-key, providing secure Single Sign-On to applications and Web services across an organization.
The YubiKey is the industry's first USB-key providing instant and secure access to networks and services, from any computer platform or browser, without the need for client software or drivers. The revolutionary device plugs into any USB slot and, with a simple touch on the YubiKey, sends the user's identity and a unique pass code that is validated by Sun OpenSSO Enterprise, ensuring that only legitimate users are granted access to the protected service.
"YubiKey's authentication integration paired with Sun's OpenSSO Enterprise running Java allows customers to easily deploy secure authentication enabled access and solve Single Sign-On challenges across various Web environments," said Daniel Raskin, chief identity strategist at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "We are pleased to partner with a strong authentication provider that enables our customers to fully enjoy the benefits of open source software."
Cloud computing brings computer and data resources to the Web and offers higher efficiency, massive scalability and faster and easier software development. Yubico and Sun envision a world of many clouds - public and private - that are open and interoperable and this partnership is just one step closer to that vision.
"We are very excited to see our YubiKey supporting OpenSSO, and, in particular, Sun OpenSSO Enterprise," said Stina Ehrensvrd, CEO and Founder of Yubico. "This solution enables Yubico customers to secure a wide range of supported Web services and provides Sun customers with a new level of secure, accessible and easy-to-use strong authentication."
