Versasec Announces Partnership with Yubico

Yubico To Host Webinar with its First Card Management System Vendor

Versasec, the leader in smart card management systems, announced today it has partnered with Yubico, the leading provider of simple and open online identity protection. Versasec is Yubico’s first Card Management System (CMS) partner and will announce support for Yubico’s YubiKey in Versasec’s next vSEC:CMS release later this month. Versasec and Yubico will host a webinar on July 13, 2016, 10:00 a.m. PT to discuss their joint solution.

YubiKeys work on Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux operating systems, and major browsers with no driver or client software needed.

“Yubico is a powerful force for enterprises, offering them a scalable solution that protects their corporate data and systems,” said Joakim Thorén, CEO of Versasec. “This partnership lets our joint customers securely authenticate, issue and manage user credentials in the evolving global security landscape.”
