Yubico Presents the YubiKey NEO Featuring NFC and Security Technology From NXP

PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Yubico, the strong authentication innovator, today announced the production launch of the YubiKey NEO. This new authentication token, developed by the request of a leading online service provider, features Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, asymmetric cryptography support and superior mobile security with a single tap. Yubico will present the production version of the YubiKey NEO in collaboration with NXP, the worldwide leader in Authentication and NFC technology, at CARTES, November 6-8, in Paris.

"To meet the growing market demand for high security PKI-based encryption and mobile access, we are pleased to launch the YubiKey NEO which uniquely combines the simplicity of our driverless One-Time Password and USB authentication technology with the superior security of PKI encryption, as well as wireless connectivity for mobile devices," said Stina Ehrensvard, CEO and founder, Yubico. "This next generation, premium YubiKey is empowered with NXP state-of-the-art security technology and Common Criteria certified bank grade authentication ICs."

"Password-based online authentication does not deliver enough security for cloud services. Hardware-based strong authentication technology is necessary to protect identities and privacy, not just in Cloud Services but all areas of cyber security applications," says Sami Nassar, general manager, authentication product line at NXP Semiconductors. "NXP already provides security for hundreds of millions of people using smart card-based bank cards, electronic passports and NFC-enabled phones and we are glad that the YubiKey NEO leverages our proven hardware-based security technology."

Combining a hardware token in addition to a Smartphone is critical for true strong security and mitigates the risk of mobile malware. The rugged YubiKey NEO fits conveniently on a keychain. When the device is tapped on a NFC-enabled Smartphone, the phone reads a securely encrypted one-time password emitted by the YubiKey NEO -- with no additional client software needed. The YubiKey NEO features a secure element based on NXP's SmartMX security technology and may also be used with asymmetric encryption. The YubiKey NEO may be used as a CCID compliant USB token, enabling easy integration for systems integrators and third-party PKI applications.

The YubiKey NEO has been successfully piloted since the beginning of this year, with more than 100,000 units ordered by customers. The product will be demonstrated at the NXP booth at CARTES, November 6-8, 2012. The YubiKey NEO may be ordered on the Yubico web store for $50 U.S. List in single quantities, with a planned shipping date of December 10.

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever. However, in fact, companies today are already using IoT data both to optimize their operational technology and to improve the experience of customer interactions in novel ways. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
