We have partnered with Yubico due to its extensive integration support and ease of management.”

We are delighted to be part of Secon Cyber’s portfolio and to have the opportunity to jointly secure even more organisations across the UK with the YubiKey and YubiHSM”, said Bettina Vahl, EMEA Channel Sales Manager at Yubico.
