The reality

Cloud-based email is a top attacking vector for phishing

Cloud applications and Office 365 are one of the main targets of phishing attacks due to their popularity. Attackers find that exploiting human error is much more effective than targeting the system's vulnerabilities. Over 99% of the attacks target end users.

Circumstant user experiences affect the adoption of MFA

According to Microsoft, less than 10% of users have activated MFA in their corporate accounts. When users need to switch focus to another device or need to enter cumbersome codes, they choose to avoid MFA.

High costs hurt IT budgets

When IT departments enable cumbersome authentication methods, the helpdesk is flooded with support issues that create high costs and a poor ROI.


YubiKey offers a very secure and easy-to-use authentication solution for Office 365.
