The past two years have seen a tremendous amount of change regarding normal business processes for companies around the world, and Yubico customers are no exception. When YubiEnterprise Delivery was first launched in May of 2020, organisations and their workforces, partners, and customers were just beginning to grapple with the new challenges that the pandemic brought, including how to enable stronger remote work security for distributed workforces without reducing productivity. YubiEnterprise Delivery introduced an efficient way for organisations across the US, Canada and Europe to adopt phishing-resistant, strong authentication at scale with turnkey YubiKey delivery to remote users.
Today, Yubico is excited to announce that YubiEnterprise Delivery expands service to 15 new countries, bringing the total to 49 countries across North America, South America, Europe, Middle East, Oceania, and Asia. Now organisations with regional offices in these regions can distribute YubiKeys directly to their employees, partners, and customers. The new countries include key areas where customers have increasing numbers of remote employees: Mexico, Chile, Israel, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Philippines, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand.
Since the launch of YubiEnterprise Delivery Service, Yubico has consistently augmented the Service with new secure remote access features and capabilities — most recently publishing an integration guide to ServiceNow. With these key integrations, Yubico aims to make the process of ordering keys for new and existing employees as seamless as possible for customers.

YubiEnterprise Delivery: What’s Next in the Era of Remote Work Security for Hybrid Workers
YubiEnterprise Delivery was created as a key way to provide IT teams with powerful capabilities to manage the delivery of YubiKey devices to remote employees, mitigating the complications of hardware distribution, while helping to accelerate the adoption of strong multi-factor authentication (MFA) for improved remote workforce cyber security. There are still many remaining remote security challenges that businesses are looking to overcome to make the distributed work model as effective as it can be. This includes the innate challenge of ensuring strong security for all employees and their devices while working remotely, but also the challenge of how to get certain tools and services to hundreds, if not thousands, of workers spread in many different places around the world.
With the addition of these new countries, broad global coverage, and new API integrations, Yubico remains committed to helping companies around the world with the ongoing challenges of distributed employees and ensuring strong authentication across users and devices. We’re excited for these moves and look forward to continuing to invest in future enhancements and capabilities to help YubiEnterprise Delivery customers.
