Multi-factor authentication (MFA) implies user and employee authentication by verifying two or more authentication techniques (hardware token, One Time Password, Password/PIN, and biometric traits) provided by him/her. MFA has become the most important part of security due to increase in unauthorized access, frauds, border intrusion, etc. MFA is increasingly getting deployed at all the security checkpoints of airports, commercial complex, retail malls, banking & finance, etc. MFA provides accurate authentication and negligible margin of duplicity or error.

This report describes the various types of biometric and non-biometric technologies such as hardware and software tokens, OTP (One Time Password), and biometric recognition that are being used for different applications. The above-mentioned techniques can be combined to form two-, three-, four-, and five-factor authentication models. Out of these models, two-factor authentication is commonly used in most of the applications. Two-factor authentication is the oldest type of MFA technique and can be seen at banks, ATMs, and various government offices.

The report also throws light on the various application areas of MFA technology such as government, banking and finance, travel and immigration, defense, consumer electronics, commercial security, and healthcare. MFA technology market is slowly spreading across all the industries where security is of the utmost concern. MFA is largely deployed in application areas like government, travel and immigration, banking & finance, and defense.

The two-factor authentication model covers almost 90% of the market for multi-factor authentication, wherein banking & finance, travel & immigration and commercial security are the major applications. Three, four-, and five-factor authentication models are less used when compared to two-factor authentication. The three-factor authentications include smart card with pin and biometric technology, smart card with two biometric technologies, pin with two biometric technologies and three biometric authentications. On the other hand, four- and five-factor authentication includes the use of smart card and pin with more than one type of biometric technology such as face recognition, fingerprint recognition, voice recognition, etc. Three-factor authentication is mostly used in private access areas like bank lockers, secret data access, defense and travel & immigration. The use of four- and five-factor authentication models is restricted to high-cost projects in defense, research, and government-based applications.

Global multi-factor authentication market is expected to reach $5.45 billion by 2017, at an estimated CAGR of 17.3%. North America is the biggest multi-factor authentication market, followed by Europe and APAC. In ROW, Middle East and Africa are the largest contributors.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
